    Because making a battleworn warhorse like Hendo step into the cage 2 months after getting within an inch of being knocked out multiple times in the same fight must be a sign.

    True compassion.

    Big Nog is practically blind on one eye, has no knees, has no neck, can barely walk-gets to headlined events

    UFC doesn't care much about fighters. Fighters often refuse to believe that they're done and fight till they get killed. That's where the UFC needs to step up, but nah, they rather have those corpses get brutalized in main/co-main events.

    I mean, if the fighter didn't wanna do it then they'd say so and the UFC would find someone else.

    You DONT GET PAID TO FIGHT. STOP THINKING YOU DO. The ufc has MILLIONS. What do you have? Stop complaining. When you get a fight in the ufc then complain about their compassion.

    I'm not gonna blame the UFC or anything, but it definitely cant be healthy for Hendo.

    Nope, all I said is true. Chuck was literally forced to retire cause otherwise he'd probably get killed and that was I think the only time the UFC did that.
    Dana wants Nog to retire, cool, what's he doing about it? Probably giving him another main/co-main event.

    Because turning down a fight really gets you in the bosses good graces as history has shown us over and over again, gotcha!

    And who doesn't want to piss on the bosses leg that close to retirement? Have you known Dana to hold a grudge? Of course not.


    I do get your point though, I am sure they care so much about his health offering him this fight when it clearly is a hazard to his health was just an accident.

    Have they signed Nog to another fight? Until they do, you're talking out of your ass.

    Giving a legend once last chance to earn a title shot?

    Where's the compassion ...

    Fuck off this is what they want to do. You have no right to make any decisions about Dan fucking Henderson. He is a grown man, and he dosn't need the money, he's made plenty off headlining events and owning gyms and fight wear brands.

    He wants his UFC belt, and he dosn't need to justify it to you white knight.

    Clear PR is clear PR, Dana trying to look like a saint who only wants what's best. If Dana truly cared he'd sit Nog down and tell him what's up.

    If you want to hear what Hendo wants to do you should listen to the interview on last week's MMA hour. It's possible you know better what he wants to do than he does but to me it sounded an awful lot like he wanted to recover and relax a bit before getting knocked out by DC.
