    The best commentary all night was at the end of the fight when Frank Mir was just like, "Oh Jesus, Jesus Christ!" In this revolted voice as Cerrone twisted Henderson's shoulder in that omoplata. I was cringing on my couch at the same time. I honestly think Henderson would have let his arm come off before he tapped out.

    I also agreed with the judges. The first 45 seconds or so of round 1 almost won the fight for Cerrone, but then Henderson took control and flat out dominated the last 4 minutes of round 1 and all of rounds 2 and 3.

    I don't know what the announcers were seeing, but Henderson was obviously gassed out after the third round (not that I blame him). They kept talking about how amazing his cardio was as he failed every single takedown attempt in the last 2 rounds and eventually just started falling to his back. Rounds 4 and 5 were all Cerrone.

    He told us at the end of the fight. It was all Jesus.

    THROUGH THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE!

    But seriously, the dude's insane. One of my most favorite fights so far.
