Hendo's game plan has become so telegraphed. Jab - Big Right hand, low kick - Bick Right hand.

That is pretty much it.

Not the greatest fight there's ever been but certainly not the worst. I gave Rashad 2 and 3 with Hendo a clear 1.

Never thought I'd say this but Dan Henderson gained some of my respect with his post fight interview.

Lets be serious. The reason he was the number one contender was because jones hhad already beat machida, rashad, bader, shogun, and rampage. Thats everyone in the top 5 at that point. Now glover and gusta are in the top 5 or so and are intriguing fights. People like to complain about vitor and chael but who else would there be for jones if he didn't fight them? Vitor was a huge win and people don't realize it. Another ex champ on jones resume. Hendo wouldve been a great win for his resume also but chael was also important because of TUF. No one better to go on tv with than chael, deserving or not. Infact hendo and tito (?) Are the only ex champs that jones has not beat that are active in the lhw division. Hmmmmm jacre vs jones actually sounds really fun

People keep saying how predictable Hendo has become. Which may be true. But then what does that say about Machida and Rashad? 1 is the 2nd best LHW. The other was just a top 3 for years. Yet they could only win split decisions over a one-dimensional, predictable, 42 year old?

What does that say about them? LHW must suck ass right now.

Hendo is just a tough fight for anyone that's not jones or silva. Hard to take down, nevered been ko'd, and could end your night at any time. And because of that you have to play safe... or you can do what shogun did and get a FOTY

Still, Hendo had KO'd Feijao, Fedor and decimated Shogun before he's gas tank failed but still managed to win. He was by any means deserving.

I agree. He definitely wasn't underserving. It's much harder to rank wins in different promotions though. We just saw feijao lose, Fedor was at HW and as much as a fan boy i am of fedor we never saw him face stiff competition after strikeforce until he dropped 3 in a row. The shogun fight, while AMAZING, could have gone either way imo. I don't think he was the clear number 1 contender but more of a "ok he's the only person who we can say actually deserves it" number 1 contender.

Hendo clearly deserved a shot. More so than Sonnen, Belfort, or even Gustaf now.

Bad stylistic matchups for Hendo. Both are very good at using footwork to avoid the big shot and can pick their way to decisions.

Dont get me wrong, Hendo is very dangerous and can knock anyone out with that big right but when that is your only game plan, every single time, then when you come up against guys who are faster and can get in and out quicker, it's always going to be difficult to land it.
