I definitely had Hendo winning the main event. He easily won the first three, and I seem to be in the minority...but I have him winning the 4th, too. He definitely won the first 4 minutes getting a takedown, a mount, and a full on crucifix. In the last minute Shogun got some good punches and a mount, which Hendo reversed and got on top. In the last two rounds whenever Dan was getting hit it just looked like he was tired, not like he was actually getting hurt.

Part of me feels like the 5th round should've been 10-8 for Shogun, but Hendo was taking absolutely no serious damage...that round was just Shogun having enough energy left to control, but just had no power to do any damage at all. The beating Dan put on Shogun in the first 3 faaaaaar exceeded any damage Shogun handed back.

Good ass fight, regardless.

As far as Hendo/Shogun, I personally scored it 47-46 for Henderson, but I am a big supporter of more frequent 10-8 and 10-10 scores. I think it's just ridiculous that round 1 can be scored in the same fashion as more dominant rounds like 3 and 5.

Agreed. If mma is going to use the 10-point must system, which clearly states the loser will be awarded "9 points or less," I feel like 10-8 rounds need to be awarded more frequently. You nailed it when you said it's ridiculous that round 3 and 5 can be scored the same as the other rounds. To me, a 10-9 round should look like rounds 1, 2, and 4 last night, a 10-8 round should look like rounds 3 and 5, and a 10-7 round should be something along the lines of the first round of Edgar-Maynard II, where one fighter is inflicting heavy damage and completely controlling the fight.

Holy shit! 4days late but I finally watched 139

What a brilliant fight!
If only that was on a fortnight ago free on Fox!
Two warriors. I thought Hendo had him out cold twice mid rnd3. But kudos to the ref for not stopping. Such entertainment.

Best fight + best card I've seen!

Rampage-Shogun II would be great, but Rampage has been campaigning to fight on the Japan card in February, and I don't know if Shogun will be ready to fight by that time. I feel like after all the damage he took last night, he had to come out of that with a broken orbital or at least something along those lines, haha.

It sounds like Shogun has been cleared. If they really want to put that fight on they could. I would LOOOOVE to see it.

Wild. Definitely would be a great fight, I guess we'll see what materializes.

In other news, a fight between Thiago Alves and Martin Kampmann is being targeted for a TBA March 3rd event.

He's very lucky that he's not getting cut from the UFC. But at least he's taking responsibility for his actions and isn't disputing the charges. He's a fan favorite, he'll come back strong if he can get clean.

Leben is one of my favorite fighters, but he needs to stop making terrible choices. He won't get cut due to his popularity, but the great amount of momentum he had before the Munoz fight is all gone especially with him being out a year. I just hope he can get and stay clean so that he can make an awesome comeback. This is a chance to get better and make one last run at middleweight, I hope he doesn't fuck it up.

haha Bisping says "Fuck all of you" to a booing crowd at the weigh-ins and then flips everyone the bird. I think he's officially given up on trying to create a positive image.
