Re: UFC 164: Henderson Vs. Pettis
really cool to see pettis grab the belt. what a pleasant night of results for me.
was never a big fan of bendo... probably because i thought he came out on the lucky side of too many coin-slip decisions. i want a more decisive champ than that. also, his defense is just too porous for my taste, and all that LORD stuff starts to get tiresome.
on the plus side for him, i really liked the way he went for the takedown, trapped pettis against the fence, then started attacking the shins relentlessly. more leggy fighters should be doing that IMO. i was worried pettis was just going to get ground down to zero mobility after a couple rounds of that.
