Its knowledge they are capable of so much more that frustrates me, if that was all they had the actual fight wasn't bad.

I was just about happy with the fight, great win Rashad

Hendo's the man who, not too long ago, was on a strong career resurgence. Back to back victories over legends like Fedor and Rua meant that age was nothing but a number for Hendo. I thought he did REALLY well against Machida who I considered to be the worst match up possible for him, and obviously he looked competitive against Rashad, but Rashad's, speed refound hunger and thirst was eventually too much

I don't know what people are complaining about, after the 1st round, Rashad mixed it up really well, specially in that 3rd round. He was almost looking like the Rashad of the old. I do agree with Toxic that he should commit to his takedowns from the offset though. That's about the only thing he did wrong here, otherwise Henderson's the most tenacious 40+ fighter out there.

Terrific win, and I KNEW he'd come out to KRS One again

Because I think it was originally only a co-main to main event. 5 rounds would have made the fight very interesting imo, though we would have seen more of a feeling out process.

Yeah, let's pretend like Dan's age is a factor all of the sudden.

The thing is he does not only have one weapon but choses to only use his best weapon as of late, same wth Roy Nelson. Both fighters have other tools at their disposal but choose not to use them.

Honestly if Country could lose a bit of weight or henderson would gain a bit i would not mind seeing that fight. we would be able to see who has the best one hit ko power.

It is annoying to see this happen to fighters, it seams to happen allot after a fighter has been in the game a while. same thing to a point happen to my favorite fighter (bj penn) after a while he completly forgot he was good on the ground and only chose to utalize his hands.

Good win for Rashad. I never really wanted to see this fight right now because I knew one had to lose. Rashad would have been on a three fight losing streak and possibly retire, and Henderson would be suffering back to back losses (which he did), and that could make a guy in his 40's contemplate retiring. Fortunately, it ended in a split decision so retirement talk may be held back for now.

So, I hear Rashad Evans is interested in a fight against Glover. It's nice to see he's not looking to dodge anyone. A guy who is looking into retirement probably wouldn't be calling out a contender like Glover who is on a very impressive and long run. That would be a fun fight for sure.
