Slick move by Hendo. Clinching in MMA needs to advance and what Hendo did gets a gold star. He used the clinch to force Rua to walk into the punch.  Making it that much more effective. The best punches are the ones your opponent walks into and does not see coming. This was both and was done on purpose with a clear set up. Beautiful.

^^^ let me try this again so u understand.I have no complaints about the fight, it was a great fight. I don't think dan intentionally threw shots to the back of shoguns headI think shogun was done for without those shots.I was trying to explain how idiotic ur 'opinion' is that its ok to break the rules to get a finish.O, and u can keep the green arrow........i know it was u.......u broke my heart....

DicklickinsBrah what's silly around here is there are to many crybabies around here crying about every little thing anymore. I can understand bitching about the Judges getting it wrong but if your bitching about the fight the other night you need to get a life.

Rerb Dean was out of position and couldn't see the shots to the back of the head. Had he'd seen them, do you think Hendo get's dq'd? I'm glad it happened the way it did, but you would think Rerb would have had to do something, no?
