Sick of people reffering to Hendo as MW

Alot of people have been diminishing Rampages achievement of beating Hendo by saying "He beat a Middleweight".

This is really pissing me off as people are taking away Rampage's skill and not admitting he's an awesome fighter.

There were more bets on Hendo to win than Rampage before the fight, therefore alot of people must consider Hendo a serious force at LHW and not just some Middleweight.

I didnt hear anyone reffering to Hendo as just a Middleweight when he KTFO of Wandy, did you?

Hendo IMO is the second best at 205 in the world and the 1st or 2nd best middleweight in the world. Yes Hendo is more naturally suited to fighting at 185 but that doesnt stop him beefing up to 204 and being an excellent LHW fighter.

People need to stop saying that Rampage is over rated, stop nut hugging the pride superstars and realise that Rampage has greatly improved and is the real ******* deal.

People are saying Shogun is going to destroy Rampage again but those same people said that about Hendo and guess what Rampage beat him decisivly.

People need to realise they cant have the best of both worlds and before a fight say Rampage is gunna get KTFO and then after a fight say winning was no achievement cos he was against a MW.

MAKE UP YOUR MINDS AND STOP NUT HUGGING PRIDE FIGHTERS!

Hey I agree, Hendo could have a lot of success at LHW. Im sure Hendo would destroy the likes of Liddell, Ortiz, Rashad, Lambert, ect ect..

Quinton Jackson = Pride fighter....It seems like alot of people forgot that when the UFC tried to make this whole event look like UFC vs PRIDE. No ones taking away from Jacksons skill but the reality is Hendos natural weight class is middleweight and I agree with you he is one of the top 205ers but that dosent take away from the truth that hes a natural middleweight. So if you want people to stop Nuthugging on former pride fighters get off Quintons nuts.

A nice rant!! and yeah I agree with some of the stuff ya said.

This is prolly one of Rampage's biggest wins, maybe arguably his biggest. To take it away from him is not cool.

And yeah Rampage's next title defense will prolly be against Shogun, and to be honest im gonna stay fairly open about it, Rampage has improved since then.

Back to Hendo, Hendo is a solid LHW, Id give him the #3 spot at this time (behind rampage and shogun)

Id like to see Hendo go to MW though...I truely want to see Hendo Vs Silva!!

I think this is Rampage's 2nd biggest win, after the 1st win over Chuck. So you can't take away from Rampage. He's improved into a world class fighter and it seems like he's done it overnight. He needs to erase the loss to Shogun, and personally I still lean to Shogun winning.

But I wouldn't put it past Rampage...he's improved 10-fold since then.

Henderson is truthfully a MW. He is small at LHW and his record is pretty bad at LHW and would be worse if he didn't get a gift over Ninja Rua. Henderson while a good fighter has become the most overrated fighter in the world lately. He is a very good fighter probably about 8 on the LHW and top 5 on MW but he gets a lot of gift decisions and outside of the Wanderlei fight has never really looked like one of the best fighters in the world. Is he top 10 yes but he isn't a top 3 LHW look at the record. That being said beating Henderson is still beating a top 10 LHW imo so I take nothing away from Rampage. But look at the fighters that Rampage has beat and then look at who Shogun has fought it's not close.

Well there ya go. Weight divisions exist for a reason.
I was one of the people who said Rampage beat a middleweight. Because he did. An exceptionally talented one, but a MW nonetheless. Rampage is clearly more suited for 205 than Hendo, their last fight proves that. Rampage won for the exact reasons I thought he would, in the exact fashion I thought he would.

BTW, I gave my opinion that Rampage was gonna win, then bet on Henderson for the odds and because everyone else was. Shoulda gone with my gut.

Word.

Quinton had 17 fights in Pride. . . 3 in UFC so far.

And who the **** cares where they fought? Just WHO they fought and the outcome.
