I thought that the Henderson- Palharres fight was very exciting! What made it so interesting is that each of the fighters were so much more dangerous than the opponent in one area. As shown, Henderson could drop Toquinho at any time with a big bomb and Palhares could lock up Hendo's legs at any time. As such, it was necessary for both fighters to be extremely cautious; whoever bullrushed put himself at more risk.
I was on the edge of my seat.
Rashad Evans vs Chuck...
Well as others have said, Chuck always fights that way. As for Rashad, you may have heard in his corner that the idea was to frustrate Chuck and probably draw him in (to negate his counter punching). When that finally happened, Rashad dropped him.
I didn't see anything wrong with those fights, although (save for the HL reel finish) the Chuck vs Rashad fight was a bit dull. However, as I've said before (dunno if it was on this forum or another), that's hardly the most interesting fight on the card.
Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
