voodoo child - Looked early but Henderson got rocked regardless. Phone Post 3.0

No doubt he got rocked but that shouldn't be enough to end a fight. He wasn't out and he wasn't eating unanswered shots. No reason to stop it, let him fight back.

He was scrambling when the big man jumped on him.

They aren't giving fighters 2 seconds to recover nowadays. 


I don't know, I thought big Dan did a great job one fight earlier. That's how it should be done, imo.

Exactly, he got dropped yes but you should allow them a chance to recover,

It's so inconsistent. Phone Post 3.0

Let the mutha fukin mutha fukers have a muthu fukin chance to mutha fukin get flashed and recover. there are plenty of mutha fuklin fights on record where the fukin daft mutha fukers go out momentarily then due to all their mutha fukin training recover and do well. a flash mutha fukin ko lasts about 7-15 sec. they should trane the dumasss refs to wait 25 sec before calling it unless its like retard mode destruction.

He landed 1 punch before BJM stopped it. All I'm saying is let him finish the fight. That is all. Esta! Phone Post 3.0

These guys are fighters, they know the risks being in there. You ask any of them and they would tell you they would rather have the fight stopped late than early.

I think Big John jumped in assuming that Benson was out cold, but he wasn't. He was in there stopping the fight before the follow-up punches even came.

I disagree. Not saying it was the right call but not necessarily a fuck up. Benson was wobbly coming up and in his post fight interview still seemed wobbly. And he kept making the wrong mistake the whole fight anyways. Phone Post 3.0

Galanis - 

No Ben was done. Concussed twice.. I wanted him to win but he was out. There have been tons of stoppages like this and they're correct. When a guy goes out, the fight is over. Doesn't matter if he wakes back up from a shot..

Sick of hearing guys say "Big John with another fuck up".. He is the best there is and has been there since the 2nd UFC ever. I trust his judgement over anybody.

Respect to BJM, Benson and Dos Anjos.

Of course, Dos Anjos is completely classy in his post fight interview and yet the crowd still boos him.. Shame.


Agree with everything you said! No need for Benson to take needless damage.

Nope it was a good stoppage. Just like Hendo vs Fedor. First shot knocked em out. Second shot woke him up. If you go out fight is over. Phone Post 3.0

Agreed.. I respect Henderson but man, for me, the most exciting fights he's been in lately are the ones he's lost (Pettis 2 and tonight)... His fights with Cerrone were awesome, and the first Pettis fight was an epic back and forth war also. Unfortunately, ALL of his UFC fights since becoming champ and losing the title (except Nate Diaz I guess) have been EXTREMELY close fights, with very little momentum shifts or moments of drama.

They resemble sparring sessions to me. I've been watching the sport for 10 years and have seen every single major MMA event.. I'm just not a fan of guys who fight that way, the ones who do just enough to get the win. I realize this is a big sport now with major money at play and one loss can change everything.. but man, I just don't like to see those fights. The who can outpoint who contests...

I'd rather watch a guy like BJ Penn any day. There was a huge difference between the interest in the LW division during BJ's reign and Ben's reign, and the reason is what I stated above. Too many inconclusive, non exciting fights, based around footwork, keeping the opponent on their toes, and generally not causing much damage.

Ben was rocked badly, and the way he fell, he appeared out. Yes he recovered quickly and did look fine right after the it was stopped. It was similar to Hendo's stoppage of Fedor. He was there to protect the fighters, and he did just that. Benson was gifted plenty of decisions by the judges in past fights. Well this time it didn't go his way, only it was a decision by a referee that determined the winner. I don't even like Dos Anjos, but I won't argue the stoppage.
