Honestly it would have been plain dumb not to be cautious of Dan's OHR

At some point when EVERYBODY that got caught clean by the guy's right went to sleep, including HW, people with very veyr good chins, and even some with legendary chins ( Shogun.. ) went to sleep , it's really not smart to put yourself in a position to get caught (potentially ) by that punch if you can avoid to..

This is what the fight game is about : take as little damage while beating your opponent soundly and finishing him..

Just goes to show black belts mean nothing on Sherdog. How can you post for so long and still not know anything?

No way in the world would DC just stand there and take Hendo right hands. That's suicide. Of course he out wrestled him and controlled him on the ground. It's called being smart and having a gameplan.

The whole chin thing is a bit misunderstood. They main thing would be how one reacts to punches. You know...the whole moving away from the power hand, rolling with the punches stuff?
So in that regard; I'd say he's got a great chin.

i don't like dc at all, but he did the right thing. he would have been a fool to try to stand and bang with dan. he most likely could have avoided the h bomb. but why even do it when he could easily rag doll him lol. and hendo CAN ko anyone.

The TS meant that when Cormier got hit the few times that he did, he got scared

Hendo could KO any human being on the planet if he lands flush and accurate.

Exactly. Cormier just removed all doubt that Hendo needs to hang'em up.

All respect to Hendo. He's one of my favorite fighters and one of the best ever. Time to end the run, buddy.

Cormier didn't want to get hit by that sledge hammer and lose his title shot. I don't see how being cautious is a bad thing. It isn't like he just wrestled and LnP to decision, he finished Hendo.

No one willingly wants to get hit in the face with a canon.

If that's Hendo's only chance to win, why would DC take the risk? It's not like DC was running away, he just did what he needed to do. And he exchanged with Hendo a few times.
