The proposal was wack and corny, but booing anybody when they are proposing to someone is flat out disrespectful.

I wasn't a fan of the booing, but it's not as bad as people just making fun of his fiance's appearance. First of all, she isn't ugly, and secondly, maybe he's not that shallow and they share a strong connection that none of us have any idea about. Her appearance is irrelevant. (Yeah, I'm a guy and I said that, haha.) Though I guess this is expected on any forum so carry on. And I'm guessing most people won't miss the chance to diss on Henderson somehow. I don't mind him though. Although, I've been with my girl for 3 and a half years and I do plan on proposing soon. I wouldn't propose in a cheesy way like that, but to each his own.

Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

I thought the booing... even during some of the fights that night was disrespectful. I was surprised by the proposal but I guess it was sweet. Ben Henderson just won a big match and decided to extend his joy by proposing. Good for him.

And once again... the hate in this thread is pathetic.

To sum up my thoughts on Ben Henderson.

I'll root for Silva before I root for him.

I'm not a fan of the public proposal, that should be private, but booing was pretty sorry. If she said no would the fight be a draw?

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

I watch most of the fights with my 15 year old daughter and she's asked many times why the crowd is booing and my response most of the time is because they're morons. That they expect every fight to be 2 guys just standing in front of each other punching the other guy in the face and anything else is boo-able. I really miss the Japanese Pride fights with the crowds so quiet until there was something to cheer for. A good example of the ignorance of most of the boo-birds was the Tate/Zingano fight, the wrestling those ladies showed was amazing, yet there was very little cheering. As far as the proposal, it was a little over the top, but I bet there's more women saying I wish my boyfriend would do that, then ones saying it was douchey. I also don't get the talk about her looks, bare minimum she was cute, I thought she was really cute though. It all comes down to the fact that there's a lot of assholes out there that just enjoy ragging on people.

Why the hate for Henderson? I've never seen or heard him being a dick, he's a good fighter and always seems respectful of everyone.

Because three of the four title fights he has been in could have gone either way. Many people don't feel like he's a proper champion. The relegious zeal is rather annoying and if you don't think he's a dick, read some of the stuff he posts on twitter.

I thought it was the most cringey/tacky thing ever. Couldn't believe the guys in the studio after were like, "you're making us men look bad". My girlfriend turned to me whilst it was happening and said, "you better propose to me better than that as that was awful". So I guess I should thank Bendo for making it easier for me!
