    You could see it on his face he knew the decision was utter bullshit and that part of him wanted to say something, but he stayed the bigger man and didn't whine. Mad respect for that. Shame it goes now as 2 fight losing streak on his record

    Yeah would be better if more people took his approach, said it wasn't going to stop him from improving which is the right approach

    Bendo is always a good sport and judging my body language cerrone knew he lost during and after the fight.

    Just made a life time fan.


    That's a former world champ, on a 3 fight skid, having been strong armed into a dangerous fight on 2 weeks notice and getting the short straw.

    Literally defined class.

    He seemed utterly pissed and fired up but tried to channel that into class and the willingness to fight. Made me respect him more for sure.

    Good for him for staying classy and not bitching. Lots of respect to Bendo.

    Yeah it was a good post-fight speech. Looked like he was seething with rage but kept it in.

    he took the high road but looking at his face and expressions you could easily tell the guy legit wanted to explode on the inside

    Should have tried to fight and not spar with Cerrone.

    Never leave it to the judges.

    Henderson will always give Cerrone trouble, he is a bad match up for cowboy. I thought Hendo won and it wasn't even a particularly great performance from Ben tonight

    Maybe he should try to actually finish a fight. If there's one person I have zero sympathy for if they're on the wrong side of a "bad" decision its bendo.
