Daniel Cormier's domination of Dan Henderson was such that that the fighters appeared to be in different weight classes. And they may have been. Hendo, now off Testosterone Replacement Therapy, came in seven pounds under the limit, at 199. Cormier cut over 20 pounds to get there.

This is a very pro Hendo crowd. He apologizes to them afterwards. Hendo says he might go to 185. "I'm not done yet. I love this sport."
