    I have never, ever rooted for Henderson (including in this fight). A big part of that is because he is so often fighting for points and has his share of gifted decisions. That said, and despite him being boring tonight, he took the decision like a man and was very classy throughout. I felt bad for him as the crowd wouldn't stop booing him no matter how classy he was. Anyone else feel like he is getting some undeserved hate here?

    Definitely agreed. Especially after being robbed so horribly.

    It was because of his Seahawks shirt. The Patriots will play them in the Super Bowl.

    Isn't Benson getting booed wherever he goes? Didn't he even get booed during his proposal?

    When you backpedal for 3 rounds spamming little baby kicks like it's EA UFC and spend half of the fight playing with your hair, people are gonna boo. Bendo stinking up the arena again.

    He was wearing a Seattle Seahawks shirt and they are in Boston.

    Had nothing to do with the fight.

    To be fair, they weren't booing the proposal, they were booing the decision. People half-assed cheered during the proposal.

    Sometimes they boo bc they disagree with decision...

    but the crowd was also cheering on Cowboy the entire fight, so who knows

    This, also the state is inhabited by Massholes, and the Jack ass shows up with a Seahawks Jersey, the guy was begging the people of Boston to dislike him.

    You could kind of sense Benson wanted to go off about the decision. I think he held back out of his respect for Cerrone.

    Pretty normal for Bostonians.
