Twitter reacts to Cormier over Henderson


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.

Minute by minute, Twitter reacted:

Chris Clements @menaceclements

"I’m ready for @JonnyBones . He’s not ready for me.” - @DC_MMA #UFC173

Bleacher Report MMA ‏@BR_MMA
@danhendo just got choked unconscious and is totally calm and making jokes now in the post-fight interview. What a man. *swoons*

DC: If I decide to take Jon Jones down 100 times, I will take him down 100 times. This is my Octagon.

MMA Roasted ‏@MMARoasted
Jon Jones just heard that call out and poked himself in the eye.

Ben Askren @Benaskren
I called @dc_mma beating up @JonnyBones in 2009, it's gonna happen in 2014! ‏@bobbyrazak
Would be a great tlme for @danhendo to retire. ‏@MMAFighting
Henderson says it's possible that he might go back to competing at 185. "Maybe I shouldn't have given him that chicken."

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani
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."

The chance to share a cage with one of my true heroes is an experience I will treasure forever. @danhendo I am ur biggest fan and I'm gonna go right back to cheering u and supporting u. Anything I can do I'm there for you. Thank u Dan Henderson and see u soon brother. #legend DC

DC isn't that exciting to watch though. Plays it pretty safe.

I've never seen Hendo thrown around like that. Jones better be worried DC is going to dump him on his head.

The crazy thing is this is a 35 year old DC. What if he started 5 years earlier and was reaching his peak at 30?

Love the sportsmanship at the end. And I would love to see  Hendo retire.

I don't think Hendo V Chael will ever happen. But there are a ton of good fights for Hendo at 185, and with Anderson dethroned.... he might figure himself for the title with a couple of good wins. I like the Mousasi fight.

I would love to see Hendo vs Chael or Hendo vs Wand 3. Hopefully he does go back to MW because there are a lot of good matchups for him there with guys he actually has a decent shot at beating, like Boetsch, Costas Phillipou, Mousasi, or Rockhold.
