    am I supposed to be impressed? He beat a 40 year old man who is about 30 pounds lighter. That was dumb.

    Can't wait for Comier to beat Jon Jones though

    I'm impressed. I definitely couldn't slam Henderson like that. The man has skill there's no denying it.

    Not the first time Hendo fought someone much heavier than him and no one else has handled him like that.

    This was a lose-lose situation for Cormier from the start.

    If he lost, he lost to a 40 year old who wasn't on TRT.

    If he won, he won against a 40-year old who wasn't on TRT.

    Great performance by Cormier regardless.

    Im not sure he cares if popinjay10 from sherdog was impressed, but i'll bet the guys who sign his checks are impressed and thats enough to get him the next title shot.

    Please, if Hendo won you guys would be shitting your pants. Hendo chooses to fight at light heavyweight no one is forcing him.

    Dan Henderson has been a "high risk, low reward" opponent since Pride.

    When Jon Jones beat Shogun, Rampage, and Rashad it wasn't considered impressive because he beat guys on the downside of their career. DC beats on a 43 year old man who's fighting for the first time in years without the aid of TRT and he's a shoo-in to beat Jon Jones. Crazy that the criticisms people have for Jones don't apply to other people.

    Are you really throwing a fit about this fight. There was no other top competition available at LHW for DC or Hendo to face so they faced one another. I'm a big DC and I think this was a good fight for him to take. To get his feet wet at 205. If DC doesn't get the next shot at the LHW strap, then he should fight Rashad.

    What?????
    That fight was good. No one and I mean no one has ever tossed around Hendo or any LHW like that before in the UFC.

    Face it, DC is coming for JBJ.

    Rashad wasn't on the downside of his career. That Rampage he fought could beat alot of other guys at LHW in the UFC. DC has the skill to beat JBJ, not saying it's guaranteed. Who has Gus dominated to make you think he'd beat up JBJ the way he did. Styles make fights and I think DC's style will have JBJ rattled.

    I agree with you, I think that DC has the style that could definitely take JBJ down, in fact I do believe it will happen, however people writing the victory down based on the Henderson fight is funny to me based on the lack of credit they give to JBJ. I know it's the hate for JBJ that makes people talk like that, just a bit hypocritical of those mma fans.
