At least it seemed that way to me. I think that at a certain point it was quite clear that DC could do anything he wanted to Hendo. Props to Dan for not ever quitting and fighting and finding ways to get out of bad positions, but DC was just too big and too good. Anyway.... DC could have postured up and blasted away or slammed elbows and won via TKO at any point, but to do so, he would have had to really unload on Dan, who he respects a ton, so he kept busy and worked patiently until he got that sub, which was the best way for the fight to end, honorable for Hendo who didn't even tap- the man has no quit in him at all and says he wants to keep competing for as long as his body will let him- he is in his mid 40s and has been fighting legends, former champs and hall of famers. DC is a beast, an elite fighter who is one of the best of all time already. but DC chose, in my opinion not to risk hurting Dan by just blasting him out (at any time he wanted) and instead waited patiently and got the sub, I think he would have even let it go to the judges if the sub hadn't have materialized rather than pound Hendo out... just my opinion, that is what it looked like to me. Props to both men. Hendo is a warrior and DC is an amazing fighter. I haven't seen anyone throw a grown man that high in the air since Rocky III when Rocky fought Hulk Hogan.
