Dan stated that his comment after the fight was a joke and apologized for making the statement. He also said that in the ring he was not sure Bisping was out, hendo also said he had no time to evaluate Bisping before the second strike.

Now he's backtracking because he realises what he said wasn't very smart and that what he did was wrong.

Wouldn't surprise me if Dana advised him to say this, it's the same as the Lesnar situation in a way.

No really he didn't backtrack at all and you need to listen to the interview to get his full explanation, or at least just to be fair to dan.

Junkie called him on the fly so there was not time to prep a statement or anything like that.

well there is still no way any of us can no the truth, but as i stated in the other threads about this i feel Dan is telling the truth here.

Or.....perhaps he was caught up in the moment? I think I'm going to take Dan Henderson's word due to the fact he has never given any fan/reporter any reason to not take him at his word.

Bisping hasn't had a problem with the shot I don't see why all these people do. Its fighting and yea i know "if something happened" and "But what if" the thing is nothing came of it. Hendo saw Bisping go down followed up to finish until the ref stopped him. No fighter has spoken out against the shot on the contrary they have said thats part of the game so I think your way off on your assessment and Henderson means what he says.

No reason to not take him at his word he's one of the classiest fighters inside and outside the game and has earned that right imo to be taken at his word and be given the benefit of the doubt.

You could tell it wasn't intentional, I'v actually just got through showing my dad the fight and by the time Bisping's head hit the floor Hendo was up on 1 foot and coming down with his last shot.
I don't mean to drag the argument back up from the other thread but it was nowhere near 2 seconds between Bisping hitting the floor and Hendo deciding to throw the next one. It's bearly 2 seconds between Hendo connecting with the first shot and getting pushed off by Yamasaki. Who did a awesome job reffing the match!

I'm not gona talk about Hendo any more because it'll become fighter bashing.

But plenty of other fighters have managed to pull away from landing extra punches once their opponent was out.

Example 1

Example 2

Example 3 is Rashad vs. Liddell which you've all seen anyway!

Fighter safety is the responciblity of the ref not the other fighter, I saw how far out of position the ref was when this happened and if anyone is to blame (and I dont think anyone is) for the second strike its the official, had he been in position the second strike would never have landed.

I can think of any number of fights that we see posts complaining of late or early stoppage and never in the past have we been so critical of the fighter. Just because the ref was so far out of position that he couldn't stop the fight that doesn't shift the burden of responcibility to Dan to stop it himself.

Im glad that for most of us we can put this issue to pasture.

I could post (off the top of my head) 7-10 clips of fighters striking someone AFTER the ref jumped in and not just once repeatedly and none of them have got this kind of heat.

Anyway if his explanation is not good enough I dont think any of ours will be either but at least you have Dans side of things.

Have you even listened to the interview? Dan explains it well and I honestly believe him. I suggest if you're that bothered by the extra shot you should stop watching contact sports. It happens, people land shots, others don't.
Hendo is one of the guys that has always been respectful and a great ambassador of the sport.
If this wasn't against Bisping this argument wouldn't even be around!

He made a similar retraction in the official post fight interview. So MMA Jumkie's interview was hardly off the wall.

Yeah your right I mean when you call someone up out of the blue and put them on a radio show thats totally scripted.

What I'm (pretty clearly IMO) saying, is that Henderson said the same thing when he was interviewed in the post fight official UFC press conference, therefore he had already changed his mind on immediate comments he made when interviewed by Rogan.

C'mon guys...this is an argument that's impossible to settle.

No opinions have changed since the argument was introduced...why doesn't everyone just agree to disagree.

I would rather see a fighter continue to fight until the ref stops it than a fighter back off only not to have the fight stopped or have the opponent regain composure and miss an opportunity to finish the fight.
