Just found this story, and thought it was pretty humorous...

So apparently Hendo knocked out 2 Brits that night... ;-)

I like it better than the GIF where you can tell that Hendo was swinging wildly with his head down.

Uh, dude... he's been throwing that same right hand with head down until the last second when he looks up to locate the chin for about ten years. If you're trying to say it was a lucky punch then he must be the luckiest person on earth considering the number of times that punch has ko'd some of the most elite fighters in the game. ;-D

Keeping the head down until the last possible second makes that punch work by not telegraphing the overhand right. It just so happens, he has the reaction skill in making the slight adjustment to locate the sweet spot at the last possible second. It's called talent. Notice the slow "lazy" hop he takes before throwing it? Tricky. Very damn tricky -- and calculated.



wow. How could I have been so wrong? I should have known that you were an MMA expert as well and have been following Hendo for the last ten years. Thanks for sharing with us ;-D


I have been actually, probably for even longer than that. Henderson grew up and went to high school in my hometown of Victorville, Ca. His brother was my high school wrestling coach, as I think I've mentioned here before. I even helped raise money for his fist Olympic bid by going door-to-door and selling candy when I was like 12 because his family couldn't afford the trip, many kids did the same thing in the little town of Victorville -- he was like the local celebrity.

Also, you don't need to be an MMA expert to know what a faint is, and you don't have to be a Henderson expert to know he often throws the right just like that. It's his signature punch. If you seen a couple of his fights or watched any sort of pre-fight promotions highlights, you'd know this. Pretty standard stuff, which is why I felt the need to correct your assertion that luck was involved by calling it "wild" and adding that his head was down. If that's not what you meant, and you realize that it was a skillful maneuver, then I retract my correction. If not, then you stand corrected. ;-D ;-)

Dream 10 goes Monday morning at 3am and will be broadcast live by HDNet. The card isn't as good as the Affliction card on August 1st, but there are a few decent bouts. I find Dream events to be pretty entertaining, with the free aspect of it being the best part. ;-D

Big change on the Affliction card next weekend. Barnett tested positive on his drug test and Vitor Belfort will replace him in the main event against Fedor. It's actually not a bad replacement for Barnett given the circumstances. Belfort looked pretty good last time he fought, but Fedor is a different beast.

This was entertaining. Whats his name.. Manhoff, think that's it, he lost but he fights like a young Tyson. Would not want to piss him off in a bar.

Manhoef is a beast, but a beast with zero ground game.

It was a very entertaining event. The one fight I was most excited about was the Aoki-Shaolin fight and that ended up being the most boring fight of the night. Two great grapplers decide to stand and exchange with each other, unbelievable.

Zaromskis looked very impressive against Mach and Jason High. The High KO was great. ;-D

Yeah, I was pulling for High after his upset win but he backed straight up and got caught with that one, ouch.
