    He lost my respect the day he said he had hypogonadism and needs TRT to survive.

    Hendo is a fucking boss. Not really fair to compare guys to him. Plus, the main reason he fights at LHW now is because the cut to MW was no longer beneficial to him. He was gassing two minutes into the fight at MW.

    Hendo has always been an "any weight" fighter. Just tell him the opponent and the contract weight and he'll be there ready to throw down.

    The difference between Chael Sonnen and Dan Henderson is that Dan Henderson is simply better than he is, which is the reason he can make it at almost any division and Chael can't.

    He's simply not good enough to hang at LHW.

    MW has always been a shelter for mid-low tier LHW's.

    What he said.

    Plus, he will fight anyone at anytime. You have to admire a guy like that.

    That's how Hendo deal with the LHW, only beat Shogun who's a 185er way out of his prime

    nah
    Hendricks walks around at 220lbs, he's just not at optimum fighting form at 220lbs. He's not ducking Cain or anything stupid like that.
