Dan Henderson spoke with Heido Androl for FOX Sports 2 before heading to the hospital, following his first round KO loss to Vitor Belfort Saturday night.

"I got caught with a  nice little uppercut," said Hendo. "I felt like I was still aware of what was going on. I know he threw a head kick, and I was definitely dazed, for sure. But I would like to maybe fight out of it a little bit. But the ref is there to protect us, so I can't complain too much."

"I'm definitely not done. I got caught tonight and… you know, I was ready to go for this fight and I just got caught. That happens, I guess, after 16 years, it's bound to happen."

"I'm just going to continue getting back in there and win fights. This one I definitely got caught and got finished, and the last two could have easily went my way, and didn't, so I've had some unfortunate luck the last three fights. But my body feels good and able to continue, and honestly, I haven't felt this good in a while. So it's just a bad night tonight.

I haven't seen him look that bad, ever. He didn't look like himself at all. I feel he should contemplate retiring.

he looked exactly like he has for the last 3 or so years.

He basically spoon fed vitor his head, and a guy with vitor's hand speed, accuracy, and power is going to eat that kind of shit for dinner.

I still had him winning the rashad fight. Nobody won the lyoto fight because it was horrendous.

I say let him have one more and let's see where he is at. Phone Post 3.0

fishyfish - "and the last two (vs. Lyoto and Rashad) could have easily went my way"

he didn't do shit in those 2 fights. the only thing that could have swung it his way is incompetent judges. hmm... I suppose he does have a point...

Not true. He had Rashad badly hurt at one point in that fight, and was competitive right up until the end, albeit slightly more gassed than Rashad. The Machida fight was perhaps less competitive, especially in the later rounds, but Machida didn't blow threw Dan like he did Bader or Munoz.

i'm not a big fan of his but MUCH respect to him for not making excuses for his loss last night. i do think he could've probably survived the kick but he doesn't blame the ref.

I wouldn't go as far as saying 3 years. But yeah, he leaned in and left himself wide open for that upper cut. I thought Mirgliotta did an excellent job of stopping it. I don't want Hendo shaking paint down the line because of untrained officials.

I just mean that's what he's always done.

 

Plodding around chasing the opponent with his overhand right, a great technical striker like vitor isn't going to fall for it.

Hendo made a huge mistake, but it's the kind of thing he always does, he just spams overhand rights.

He basically has the same strategy as roy nelson, which doesn't work against good strikers with decent reaction.

Vitor made him look silly. Hendo wasnt even close to gauging the correct distance before waddling into a uppercut to bolivia.

Hendo is still Hendo. Don't throw in the towel on him yet. Vitor is on FIRE... Hendo came in aggressive and just got caught. That isn't going to happen with most anyone else, as we've already seen. Vitor was just a bad fight and I really had a strong feeling going in that it would turn out that way. Hendo is going to surprise a lot of people when he comes back and ices someone. He's been fed nothing but the best of the best Phone Post

I can't wait for Hendo's next fight. He and Rampage throwing down on the inaugural Bellator PPV is going to be awesome!
