It's too bad because I felt like Bocek had been talking too much prior to this fight. I thought they were going to get FOTN to be honest.
There was SO much to talk about after this card. Lets not forget the Janitors KO or the flying triangle!

Anyway, yep pretty impressed by Henderson. I admit I had a lot of questions about the WEC guys, but they are definitely answered and put to rest, they are legit. He had his hands full with Bocek, but I honestly thought Bocek would be too much for him and I was completely wrong.

Well i do believe he will go far in the division , i think its a bit radical to say he has the "BEST SUBMISSION DEFENCE" someone like Maia or Jacare probably does hell Sherk is pretty amazing at escaping submissions and i dont think he has ever been submitted either.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Well some people don't like him because of the religious nonsense he preaches after a fight. The way he goes about it is just odd.

I think Ben Henderson is a great fighter, always exciting to watch like Clay Guida. I think he would have won against Anthony Pettis if he didnt get caught by the falcon kick at end of the 5th round.

I think there was no love for him in UFC 129 for obvious reason, he fought Canadian in Canada.. and you know what they are like. I was ROFL when Mark Bocek rised hand and acted like he won after the fight.
