    Very, very close fight. Gun to my head, I probably think Henderson won rounds 1 and 3. Gun to your head, I probably pull the trigger.

    Benson won the weirdest interview of the night. I couldn't tell if he was crying, upset, angry, or motivated.

    He was angry and pissed off. However, he did won a few split decisions in the past, so as the say goes.... you win some you lose some

    I thought Cerrone won round 1, but probably lost round 2 and 3 myself. Only for certain round was round 3 for Henderson. Nobody can feel bad for the guy who had an entire title run based off of shitty decisions though.

    I was thinking if the leg kicks bendo was scoring for him while the fight was going on. Obviously not. I reckon the big factors that swung rounds 2&3 in cowboys favor were the takedowns

    He seemed like a really angry guy trying his best to control it. Looked a bit insane. Very classy though.

    I think even Donald has no idea how he won. I felt bad for Henderson, even though it was a bad decision, he still got booed...prob because of the Seahawks shirt.

    Very close fight. They both knew what the other was capable of and consequently they both didn't go all out. Neither one wanted to be caught by something for getting wild.

    Considering the 2 week thing, i have no problem of giving it to Cerrone, he's likable and it was a close fight, IMO he won.

    using "likability" in judging criteria seems a little silly to me

    I would've given 2 and 3 to Henderson. 1 was close but I thought Cerrone took it. 2 I thought was all Henderson, he outlanded Cerrone badly and I know people bring up the takedowns but Cerrone didn't do much with them, I don't think they should be considered highly.

    3 was a toss-up. Under unified rules Henderson should've won IMO, I don't love unified rules but it's what we have (same thing with Lawler-Hendricks 2, the right guy won morally and as a fight fan but based on the scoring system it was a bad call).

    When it was all three 29-28 I was CERTAIN it'd be called for Henderson. It was a close fight and I love Cowboy and I love that they could still fight again, but it left a weird taste in my mouth. Felt for Bendo a bit there, it probably should've been his.
