    Hendo, the man of few words.

    I keep forgetting that they were going to fight at one point. It's a good thing they didn't.

    It is a pretty low thing to do to call Henderson win as nothing.

    Yep, took shots after. Like clock work, they want to play the victim. Watch CM Punk try the same shit.

    Yeah I guess Dan has said a few things in the past about Jon, but what Jon said was super harsh and pretty bad.

    I mean, Jon wasn't wrong. I have mad respect for Dan Henderson, but let's look at some of his past fights.

    DC - I almost called the police.
    Shogun - Although he won, Hendo was getting caught and dropped left and right. He caught Shogun flush, but....come on.
    Belfort - brutal loss
    Evans - split decision loss
    Machida - split decision loss

    Are there people who still feel like Hendo should be fighting at this point?

    or.. There's the shields fight i referenced. People are using Cormier tossing hendo around as justification for his wrestling dominance. But a former HW tossing around hendo at LHW who got grapple fucked by Jake Shields doesn't say a lot.

    I think he's just trying to say DC hasent beaten any top guys at LHW. Which he hasent.

    Maybe if Hendo had stopped fighting a few years ago there would be no reason to call him washed up.

    Jake Shields has wins over Lawler, Woodley, Condit & Okami on the same night, Maia, Daley, Akiyama, Kampman, Pyle and more, as well as Henderson, and gave GSP trouble that not many have.... Losing to Jake Shields is nothing to be ashamed of...

    Its completely relevant, the quote in the original post is asking what has Henderson ever done to Jones. I can post stuff Hendo has randomly said about Jones just last year (Example), and since than Jones has taken shots at him. Now Henderson is trying to play innocent, which is pure bullshit on his part.

    Harsh but true, and I'll forever be a huge Henderson fan. The reality is at this point he Is old, incredibly slow and nowhere near the fighter he used to be - particularly in the DC fight where he was fresh off of test. and couldn't even get his weight up to 200lbs, which is unheard of nowadays. That win was nothing Dan should - or likely does - feel proud of.

    Jones is not known for his wit. I bet his IQ is 50-69.

    Fucking LOL. That's hilarious. I agree with you tho, I literally felt like a bad person for watching that fight. It was like a 12yr old kid getting pissed off and trying to fight his 25yr old brother.


    Hendo's run in the UFC has been less than stellar honestly...

    -He came and challenged Ramage. Lost
    -Challenged Anderson. Lost
    -Arguably went to a draw with Rich Franklin
    -Soul taken by Vitor

    The list goes on. Hendo is a tough old dude that's been doing it forever but he's hardly a "bad ass" anymore in the company of today's current fighters.
