    Damn, Cerrone vs. Henderson turned out to be an amazing bout. I'm in awe of Henderson's ability to resist submissions, although I was a little disappointed in the decision. I can't be too upset though; it was incredibly close. I've been a fan of Cerrone for a while and he's still one of my favorite guys to watch fight, but after tonight I can't wait to see another Henderson fight.

    And once again the judges fail to recognize submission attempts from the bottom... great fight though.

    easily a fight of the year candidate, imo. i also thought cerrone took the first round, and thus the fight, and so does Varner, but apparently Cowboy is rather hard on himself, or gracious toward his very resilient opponent.

    sorry, it's a link to mmajunkie about the post fight presser. i'll try posting the url itself.
    *edit: that worked even less.

    i basically googl'd "donald cerrone" and clicked on the first news link, titled: "Donald Cerrone on WEC 43 main event: Benson Henderson definitely won that fight"

    WEC consistently puts on some of the best fights of the year.

    Cerrone/Henderson wasn't a bad decision; round 1 was really, really, really close and the rest of the fight was pretty clearly 2 rounds to Henderson and 2 rounds to Cerrone. The tendency is to think Cerrone was robbed because he won the last round clearly, but realistically each guy took two rounds clearly and one round was extremely even, so it's not surprising for the judges to see it either way. Certainly not a robbery.

    torres/mizugaki comes immediately to mind, despite frank mir's absurdly one-sided analysis/commentary.

    yeah. i thought it was weird all three judges scored it the same, but whatever, cerrone showed us that he is definitely up for championship level fights, in case he wasn't before.

    Anybody else figure out why Henderson doesn't need to breathe, have blood flow to his brain, or have his joints go the right way to live? I think we should dissect him for the sake of medical science.
