    “ I’m a much better fighter than him and more well-rounded. He caught me and that’s the way it goes. I felt he was more lucky against me.”

    “My body was feeling odd that night. I didn’t have the best weight-cut the last day and a half. My body felt a little fatigued.”


    “Once on the ground I was fine but got caught with a pretty good punch on the ground and dazed me. The next thing I knew he had my back. I didn’t fight my fight. I wasn’t there 100 percent.”


    “He’s definitely a talented fighter but no comparison if I’m 100 percent. But that’s no fault to him.”

    Hendo has a lot to prove now. Another loss in the UFC and casual fans are going to stop caring about what he has done in PRIDE.

    I hate to hear shit like this from fighters. Especially no bs guys like Hendo.

    Man up Dan you lost.

    i still think he has the potential to beat silva. the way he was finished wasn't exactly "lucky" though. weird and in with the unexpected from hendo crew

    He was wicked gassed after the fight, so I'll have to give some credit to the cut.

    I think Hendo said that b/c he usually doesn't get hurt by punches. He usually gets stunned and shakes it off immediately. I think he probably believes it was just a weird circumstance but in reality he is just getting old

    Then he should stay at 205.

    If you agree to fight at 185 and know you have to cut it can't be an excuse.

    I dont think Hendo should get anymore free rides in the UFC. Maybe he can fight the loser of the Franklin/Lutter fight.

    Only problem with that is IF Franklin wins he would be the #1 guy to fight silva, even tho i could watch franklin get another broken nose it would be bad for the sport

    He can be really interesting in the 205 mix.

    There are a lot of good fights that can play out there over the next year or so.

    i actually think he can obtain more success in the 185er. Despite what a beast he is, he looked way too small against some1 like rampage.

    Silva is pound for pound, the current best MMA fighter in the world, PERIOD!

    Plus he's always been a first class stand up guy. :cool:

    :rofl: rich vs henderson would be a good fight i think. i really don't know who they could throw at anderson at this point. okami could be good and they could play up that whole DQ from their last meeting. at least it would be someone new.

    Maybe they should do a handicap match like in pro wrestling. Silva vs Franklin AND Hendo.
