    Did Hendo's head shrink?

    Maybe they photoshopped a more aggressive head on his best flex shot...and took some foreshortening leeway on the overlay.

    Whatever they did must have stunned Feijao into unconsciousness...

    I didn't see the fights, but it sounds like Hendo looked like his old self. I guess the cut to 185 was draining him, so it's good to see him staying at light-heavy. Also, that's another belt he gets to add to his collection.

    Dan Henderson vs. Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante - Wow 40 is the new 25. At least for top athletes like Couture and Henderson heh. That bouncing face plant by Feijao probably hurt more than that first punch, good stoppage.
    Marloes "Rumina" Coenen vs. Liz Carmouche - Carmouche, probably a relative unknown had her stock shoot up with her great showing. Decent fight.
    Tim Kennedy vs. Melvin Manhoef - Wish Manhoef had a few more months to train wrestling, hopefully some BJJ too heh. Fight went as expected.
    Jorge Masvidal vs. Billy Evangelista - Good action first round and second rounds. A bit technical but no need for the crowd to boo. Great fight from Masvidal, he did all the right things and his experience showed.

    I used to like Mauro, but

    He's been regularly fighting MMA for a decade. A couple of months either way isn't going to make a great deal of difference.

    Henderson looked very good, has he ever kicked that much in a fight before? Seemed to really add to his ability to walk Feijao down.
