Henderson won it. If you had to give it to one or the other it was Dan for sure

I would have loved to see a draw, even a SD for Hendo. I don't agree with the 3 UD's. That last round was def. a 10-8. I just have to rematch Hendo's big round and see if that garnered a 10-8, which of the top of my head, did not.



Agreed.

Shogun's "big round" was BIGGER than Hendo's "big round." Shogun deserved a 10-8 and Dan did not.

I had shogun winning at least two rounds, one being 10-8 or even 10-7. I thought imo he won the 1st, 4th, and 5th rounds with the 3rd going to Hendo and the 2nd being close. I had Shogun winning.

I think Hendo got the "home state" advantage here in a close fight.



10-7? How? Shogun was dominant, but he barely had the ability to throw down he was so tired.

There's no way Shogun won the first round, sorry. Hendo winning was the correct decision. If you want to throw out dominant rounds, let's go with round 3. That was more 10-8 than Shogun's last round.

How... by ANY stretch of the imagination....was Round 3 more dominant than Round 5? Hendo literally spent 5 minutes straight on his back (mostly mounted) getting punched in the face. Hendo did NOTHING in Round 5. In Round 3 Shogun had some offense on the feet and a close submission attempt.

I agree that the first Round went to Hendo though. But I gave the 2nd Round to Shogun so I have the same score as tmas.

uhm no.... Hendo had zero offense and really no defense even in round 5. rnd 3 was no doubt Hendos, but Shogun did have offense he took like 2 min of the round even so no sorry but in no way was Hendo's dom round anywhere near shoguns.

I had it 47-47 draw...but if I had to pick a winner, I'd lean towards Dan. IMO, he won the first 3 years pretty straight forward, with doing major damage in the 3rd. Obviously, Shogun won the 4th and 5th. The only question to me is was the last round really a 10-8 or not? Like maybe others have said, yeah he was in the mount...but I really didn't see much in terms of damage at all. They were both too tired, which is one reason I think all 3 judges didn't give Shogun the 10-8. Even though I BARELY scored it a 10-8 just because of the dominant position, I can see it being just a 10-9.

Just got back to the hotel from the fights

Best fight card of the year live for me
And probably number 2 now as best fight card live ever just behind ufc 100

This fight for me beat wandy vs lidell as best live fight as well

And overall non fights. I had a blast in san jose one of the best trips ever!!

As for fight no shit. I had it a draw!!! 10-8 round for shogun for 5th round

Got to give wandy credit!!! Awesome fight vs Le.

I really needed a good weekend after the week I had!!!

I just believe he did more damage in the round... landed 3 pretty big shots including a huge uppercut that rocked Shogun's head back. Not to mention he had him against the cage for a good minute, as well. But it's mostly the power shots that Dan got in that round. I can't find one MMA site that does play by play that disagrees with me on round 2 either...

I did say "pretty" straight foward (round 2 was the reason for the "pretty")

I wouldn't say FOTY. I still have Edgar/Maynard 2 in the lead. I had a draw, but if I had to I'd give it to Hendo.

I know I'm going to get shit for this but I dont think the Shogun/Hendo fight was even the best fight that happened tonight and I'm a huge Shogun and Hendo fan. The FOTY for me right now is the Eddie Alvarez vs. Michael Chandler fight. It was EPIC!! Eddie Alvarez is still one of the best lightweight fighters on the planet but Michael Chandler WILL be the number one lightweight in the world one day. All around a great night for MMA.
