    After that brutal KO it's hard to see what he has left.

    He had enough left to KO Shogun.

    He is a MW getting wrestlefucked by a HW world-class wrestler. This would happen anytime in his career.

    this was a bad fight for the UFC to make and a worse fight for Dan to accept. The fact that nobody in his camp\management\family\circle of friends didn't dissuade him from taking this fight is beyond retardation. He's 1-3 in his last 4 fights and about to be 1-4 in his last 5. He should be fighting other has-beens, not the #2 HW and #LHW in the world.

    So dumb.

    Dan Cormier's just getting started--why would he retire?!

    He and Shogun both should have retired after their fight.

    I agree, I didn't give much chances for Hendo to win this.

    But you know what? Hendo is a true warrior. He fights anyone, at any weight. That's how it is and one should respect that, wise thing to do or not.

    Your post is "beyond retardation".
    Dan is a true fighter.
    True fighters fight anyone.
    No matter how big.
    No matter how bad.
    A true fighter fights who is in his way.
    If Dan were to win this fight, he would of got a title shot after Gus.
    I'm sorry but if you're a pro fighter and you don't want to win the championship in your division, then why are you even competing? Think about it!

    No, he should get a gimme fight in his next outing, brutally KO him with an H-bomb, THEN retire.

    But, based on his post-fight interview tonight, I don't see it happening. Looks like Hendo plans on competing until he's a complete shell of his former self. Even though he's honestly already there.

    It was for a title shot. Hendo wanted a title shot.

    He should, but he probably won't. It's obvious he won't even be a contender again, so he might take vintage fights to get a big payday and then retire on a W.

    But hopefully it's soon, because this sport doesn't need another powerful fall like Liddell had.
