UFC Fight Night 38 Tweets: Pros react to the roller coaster ride of Shogun vs Hendo!

Old man Dan does it again in what was a continuation of their epic first battle. I was absolutely confident in Shogun prior to the fight. He never loses a rematch and it's a home court advantage. One thing I didn't know was that Hendo had the TRT exempt. I think it gave him just enough to survive the two round onslaught. Hendo got hurt badly.

Read the tweets by clicking on the link. It's pretty funny!

Quote:
Heading into Sunday night, it'd been two and a half years since Dan Henderson had last tasted the sweet fruits of victory. Apparently, all "Hendo" needed was a bit of the ol' Shogun Rua magic to get those juices flowing once more.

At 43 years young, Henderson somehow survived a torrential onslaught in his rematch against Rua at UFC Fight Night 38, nearly succumbing to strikes not just once, but twice, before unleashing one more H-Bomb for the ages. Henderson caught Rua with a right inside hook to the jaw, Rua dropped, and the old man finished off his handiwork to claim a thrilling third-round TKO win... and, at least for the time being, quiet all those pesky calls for his retirement.

Of course, as always, the mixed martial arts community couldn't help but revel in the legend-on-legend carnage it was witnessing. And so, for tonight's Pros React, our timeline picks up right where the two former champs left off, trading blows in what essentially served as round six of their campaign, right before Rua nearly ended the night early. Enjoy.

I believe he got an exempt due to the close proximity of the rematch.

The fighters had the right reaction to the fight. From what I have been reading many salty fans did not.
The fight didn't have it's deserved appreciation before it took place and it looks like it's not getting it's deserved appreciation after either.

Book a 3rd fight. Why not? It's not like either guy will get another title shot.

Sounds to me like its already starting...

The whole "We banned it UNLESS YOU yada yada" nonsense.


Hendo moves like C3PO but he's still the man.
