Belfort KOs Henderson in the first round


The bout began with Henderson taking center of the cage and stalking the Brazilian, both being careful, but Henderson looking to land the famous right hand. Belfort, however, used his trademark hand speed, clipping Henderson with a sneaky left uppercut that folded the American as he attempted to close the distance.

Henderson tried to recover, but couldn't make it happen. Belfort landed hard, precise ground and pound. Henderson tried to stand to recover, but was met with a left high kick that landed flush on his chin, forcing referee Dan Miragliotta to stop the action.

I think Hendo said he was rocked, pretty clear if you watch/rewatch imo.

Totally off topic, but is the UG messed up for anyone else? For some reason my letters are huge now and some things are out of place. The main page for news is totally to the right side. I didn't want to start a thread for this so I thought I might as well ask here, sorry it's totally not related to the thread.

Though he never really landed anything, against Machida he still looked fast and strong and that was Machida. Then against Rashad and then Vitor, 2 more super fast guys, he looked MUCH slower against these 2 suddenly imo.

Not that I am a fan of Hendo, but that aging one dimensional fighter destroyed the mighty Fedor.

Anderson Silva nearly KO'd him, but decided to choke him out instead.

Dan is one of the top MMA stars to ever fight. His last few fights have been a little painful to watch. I think his career ended, as well as Shogun's, with that all time great fight. Shogun was damaged goods after Jones. Hendo just seems slow lately, and at 43 that might have more to do with it then technique or anything else.I would like to see him hang em up before he walks away with 5-6 consecutive losses to guys he shouldnt had lost to, ending his career with people saying he was a punching bag at the end.
