Dan Henderson, on a three-fight losing streak, went to Mauricio 'Shogun" class="Newslink">Shogun' Rua's home turf, was rocked "a tad" twice, and then came back with a KO that Picasso would have found inspirational.
And then Twitter reacted.
Lorenzo Fertitta once did an interview with The Atlantic magazine in which he explained the appeal of the UFC.
"... there’s the holy s--- factor," said Feritta. "Actually, they said ‘the holy f---ing s--- factor.’ It happens at every fight. At least one or two times in every UFC show, whether you say it out loud or you say it to yourself, you go, ‘holy s--- did that just happen?’ I mean, you might see somebody do a flip, get kicked in the head, get knocked out with a punch. At some point, you’re going ‘whoah, did that just happen? Did I really just see that?’ That’s the nucleus of what our product is."
If you don't want to read how Twitter reacted, you can sum it up in three words: HOLY F@$%ING $#!T.

Dan Henderson is always one punch away from knocking out any living object. Including bulls and elephants!

I'm glad Dan Henderson isn't my dad . That's a bad old man. There will be no talking back in his house
Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
Hendo moves like C3PO but he's still the man.
Dan Henderson is the 2nd oldest person to record a T/KO inside the Octagon. Only Randy Couture did it while older (versus Gonzaga).

Amazing how quiet the arena is right now. One could say that right hook saved Hendo's UFC career. It did not look good early.
