Henderson: I am perfectly fine as co-main

by Damon Martin | source: mmaweekly.com

Well his coach may have an issue with Rousey headlining the show, but Henderson doesn’t share his opinion as he expressed on Twitter Thursday night.

“I am perfectly fine as the co-main (event),” wrote Henderson. “I will get to relax and enjoy the women go at it.”

Henderson faces former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida in the co-main event, while recent Strikeforce transfer Ronda Rousey headlines the card in her first defense of the UFC women’s bantamweight title against Liz Carmouche.

Always a gentlemen. Goddammit, can someone please start rewarding the decent guys instead of giving out the best fights to the people who act like douchebags to get them.   Machida vs Hendo was a potential fight of the year like Hendo epic scrap with Shogun was. Now we are getting Honda steamrolling some ''poor'' marine. I think Carmouche is likeable enough but she obviously has no business being in the cage with Honda.

Yep.I said in an earlier thread that I thought Hendo would be upset playing supporting act for a new act. I eat that crow and respect Hendo even more for saying this.

If Carmouche gets to tap out with her arm between Honda's legs, I want to too !

Hendos chances of winning went up 85% when this was moved to co-main even if he gasses he can still hold machida against the cage 4 mins out of each round like he did fedor in the 1st

Hendo using Page's strategy (Rd.'s 1 & 2) outpoints Machida or lands the overhand right (Machida has always had an issue with them landing) leading to the KO.

Love Hendo, but Machida takes this one in the 2nd

Of course he doesn't mind. He'd rather not gas in a 5 round fight again.

uFc still annoyed with hendo when he coached tUf, he didnt say hardly anything, didnt do any yrash talking or reacting, bisping was forced to carry the whole show, likewise in the pre fight marketing bisping pretty much did all of it, hendo hopefully is learning you have to draw money to earn big money and you do that by hyping up and selling fights

In other, related news Hendo has requested extra vaseline in his rider for the Rousey fight.
