Meh, Same old story from Dana. Dan is one of my favorite fighters he will do well in Strikeforce.

Nobody cares that he went to Strikeforce. He's a one trick pony, big right hand and that's it. He would have never been relevant in the title picture in the UFC.

What? He was top 3. He was fighting Marquardt for the #1 contender spot. That seems pretty relevant to me. Not to mention he was the most recent fighter to win a round against Anderson Silva.

Jacare, Shields, King Mo, Babalu, Hector Lombard, Mayhem...?


There's a ton of great fights for Hendo in SF. I for one can't WAIT to see him vs Mousasi, him vs Shields, him vs Jacare, and him vs Lombard.

Dana played this shit exactly right. Hendo is a valuable commodity, no doubt, but he's definitely not worth what he was asking. He definitely would not be competitive in the UFC anymore. He would be doomed to beating up over-the-hill (Franklin) and overrated (Bisping) fighters if he were to stay in the UFC. Everyone says Dana has no respect for fighters. That's bullshit. Dana just knows what a fighter is worth and makes sure they know it to. That being said, he knows Hendo shouldn't be the highest paid fighter in the UFC, and he shouldn't. Bisping is the only "good" fighter he would ever beat in the UFC and that's because he's sucha genius that he circles into his power, idiot. Strikeforce is the better choice for him cuz they are the nobody league and need to pay him for his name, so they did.

Hendo is pretty much going to clear the ranks in SF. The only person who poses a threat is Mousasi, and I'm sure Hendo has a good chance of beating him.

Problem with Dan is he's in no man's land. Lost in LHW and MW. Good enough to be a solid contender and pick off every other contender, but not good enough to be champ anymore. Do they want Hendo taking out A. Silva especially after "The Spider" already dispatched him. It was good for Dan to move on.

I honestly can't say that I care whether I'll see Hendo in the UFC, again. I never considered him exciting, anyway.

I actually agree with UB a little, while I do love watching the Bisping fight, he hasn't been too exciting. He does have heavy hands and a rock solid chin, but a lot of other fighters do as well. I don't care as much as some do...
