This past weekend, at UFC 157, we were treated to the debut of women's MMA in the UFC. The card was solid overall, but featured a couple fights that were disappointing, to say the least. Among those was the highly anticipated bout between Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson, which ended up being an unfortunate bust.


I'd consider fighting anybody. As long as I didn't have to cut too much weight, I'd pretty much fight anybody. I just want to get back in there as soon as possible. I hated the long layoff. I want to fight any one of the top 5 guys and I know I'm capable of beating them. That'll keep me right up in there. I'll take any one of them. I could sit here and bitch (about the Machida fight), but it doesn't help anything. I just want to be active and give the fans what they should have seen the other night.

I wasn't planning on retiring anyway after 1 or 2 fights. I plan on being there for a couple of more years, at least. I want to get back in there and fight as soon as I can and stay active this year and next year for sure.

After seeing the Fedor fight, I'd be interested in seeing how Dan fared against a Pat Barry or a Daniel Cormier. Truth be told, I'm interested, as many of you probably are, in seeing Henderson fight anybody. One thing is sure, as long as he's still competing, I'll still be watching.

Any respectable MMA fan has to love the fact that Hendo will fight anyone, anywhere, anytime. I wish more guys had that attitude.

Really? Because it seems like that's all you've done since the Machida fight is bitch. About Machida's "non-fighting", about the judges, about Zuffas "inability" to give you more frequent fights against more prestigious high-ranked fighters.

Yes I am now very close to being a card-carrying "Hendo Hater." He's a straight up dick that bitches all the time now. He "out-assholed" Bisping on their season of TUF & that's an accomplishment. I have a friend who was on his team that season & says he was completely uninterested in his figters, the show, matchups, & everything apart from his fight with Bisping & his own training for that. If not for his "H-Bomb" he would have lost a lot of his fights in the last couple years. One fight for sure, is the Feijao one, I was front row & Feijao had a better gameplan, better conditioning, & would have easily beat Hendo , if not for 1 big overhand right. Yes, that is part of fighting, but I see something like Machida's "non-fighting" against all of the top guys he's beat as A LOT more impressive than the fact he can end fights regardless of gameplan or if he's winning the fight due to a God-given talent of being able to end a fight with one right hand shot at any time. I mean shit, even Kimbo has that. Ok, not the best example lol but you have to see what I'm getting at.

Hendo vs Big Country now lets see that Dana

Personally, I don't really think Hendo deserves a big heavyweight superfight. Too bad Big Country wasn't free though. That would be a downright war.

i like fighters based on their actions inside the cage or ring, not outside of it

the only exceptions are rapists, bullies & criminals. other than that, i dont care if theyre assholes.

He has so many fights left

Lil nog and wandy rematches
Texeira
Evans

Also middleweight fights

I do believe this is his last year. He will fight two more times one against Evans
Second maybe bisping rematch

Really? did Hendo squirt water at Johnson, or was that Bisping? Did Hendo act like a baby because he didnt want to change the training times when they were allowed to change them or was that Bisping? I could go on and on about the douche things Bisping did in that season of TUF. Look at how Hendo coached that season and the gameplans he installed. His team never followed them, he would say one thing they needed to do to win the fight and they never did them. And stop with the "If he didnt land that one shot" bullshit that the opponent would have won. If all he has is "1 shot", then it would be very easy to gameplan for it. Hendo won the 2nd round of the Feijao fight and didnt land the big right until the 3rd, he was doing fine.

I agree with the other posters saying Henderson is almost completely one dimensional. When he comes up against fighters of a particular skill set, he really struggles and is only ever looking for the overhand right.

I respect what he's achieved in the sport, but he's completely missed out in the evolutionary aspect.
