Over all the card was ok. Im glad Dan won and IMO I had the fight scored 29 - 28 Hendo.
Yes...I see what you mean. I assume that the difference in score wasnt due to Henderson losing a round, but due to him being careless.

The only reason I'm happy Henderson won, is that it will push him under the TUF bus rather then Franklin again. Franklin didnt sound like he really wanted to do TUF again...and someone different means a whole Tabla Vasa doesnt it

Hi Andreas! Glad to see you forgot to capitalize your own screen name when you reregistered

Not at all.

In terms of Forum History it took me nearly a year to beat Andreas, and for half that period he was AWOL. I just do my thang...maybe he'll get bored and leave again and I'll come out on top...but you have to remember if Andreas had chosen to stay full time since 2006...he would have had almost double my post count. I was only top dog because he spent nearly a year and a half not posting at all

I was pleased to see Hendo win, he seems to be real tough to beat.

The thing is i have no doubt in my mind that he won the first two rounds, for me no arguement, close, but he just did seem overall the better fighter.

However, you got the feeling the longer it went on, the more and more Rich would dominate and win. So yeah defo agree that in a title fight, Franklin woulda done it. Its strange as Hendo, if i remember correctly was fine with Rampage over 5 rounds.

As he said he was disapointed in his cardio.

Now whilst i like Bisping, i am looking forward to Dan finishing it with a real good right he is famed for, and all that momentum behind him would make him ready to dethrone Anderson.

Lytle and Davis was good, just sad Lytle didnt take it. One of the many redeeming things the UFC does is look after fighters who entertain and come to fight and are well behaved. Hence the fact they always utilise a brilliant Chris lytle.

Coleman look emaciated at Light Heavy, i think he'll do a lot better at Heavy. Whislt Shogun looks distinctly average, i hope i get the see him at his best again.

He should have been dissapointed in his illegal strikes.

It happens. the coming of the heads is eachothers fault, its just unfortunate but its gonna happen when you have two men fighting.

The eye poke did look nasty but again, it was never intentional.

I don't think it changed things for the fight, Fraklin was always going to win the 3rd round but never finish it.

So Hendo still wins, 29-28 in my view.
