As UFC president Dana White explained during the UFC 161 post fight media scrum, the main event was so close either Dan Henderson or winner Rashad Evans could have gotten the nod without raising any eyebrows. After the fight, Dan Henderson respectfully expressed his belief the he won.

“He stood there and fought me," said Henderson. "He didn’t run away. It was a close fight. I thought I won (although) he kept the pressure on in the third round and never let me get a little breather. He did a great job fighting tonight.”

Further, Henderson has no intention of retiring.

“I’m just a little more pissed off now than before," he said. "More pissed at myself than anyone else. I’ve got no one else to blame.”

Who do you think won the fight?

I'm not a fan of JBJ but that version of Hendo would have been killed in the Octagon. I don't know what he thinks he would bring to that fight. Phone Post 3.0

The 2nd round was the kicker. Hendo took the 1st clearly, Rashad clearly had the 3rd. The second was so close but I think Rashad controlled him a bit more and I think had that the td in the 2nd, can't remember. Had he done just a bit more in that 2nd he could have taken it. Phone Post 3.0

There were some good exchanges for both for one Rashad did well in the 3rd I believe after Hendo hit him and he immediately countered with a strong flurry, nothing landed cleanly from what I remember but it was a good attempt

I would have given the nod to Rashad, but I couldn't have been upset if the judges disagreed. The clearest round was the first, which Dan won, certainly. The second round was very even, but Dan briefly fell from a strike. I think Rashed landed better and more numerous strikes in the third.

When a round is that close like it was in the 2nd, these judges just need to score it 10-10. Phone Post 3.0

I had the first round for Hendo, the second a draw, and the third for Rashad. I don't see any reason why a winner should've been declared in that fight. People, for one reason or another, seem to dislike draws, but I think the judges' refusal to score them cheapens the sport greatly.
