    I stumbled upon this article because I thought it showed a typo about Hendricks and Thompson being HWs, but then when reading I found this:
    http://www.foxsports.com/ufc/story/...thompson-making-the-grade-passes-fails-020716
    Thought it was funny that Carwin, Silva, and Rua are just a few examples who have done it before. Even if they meant, WW, Koscheck and Penn both have first round KOs against Hughes.

    Just thought I'd share since I thought it was kinda funny.

    Fox is in bed with Reebok, imo.

    Are you sure they weren't referring to Hendricks being knocked out?
    Though even so, it's not worded well.

    If so, then that's bad writing. To me it doesn't seem that's what they were going for.

    • Just replace A former champion with The former champion and it makes perfect sense. Just an error in editing.

    Definitely talking about Hendricks himself. Not the UFC or WW as a whole.

    No one has done to Hendricks what Thompson did to him.

    I agree with most of what's been said. It looks like bad writing / editing, not a conscious effort to mislead.
