Many came into this Fight Night thinking and expecting Dan Henderson to lose. Hendo has lost 5 out of his last 6, and mostly by impressive fashion, so how would Hendo react to being off TRT, it has to be said, and coming in against a younger, bigger opponent? It seems like Hendo always steps up to the plate, and there are few tougher men in the first 2-3 minutes of a fight. Yeah, Tim Boetsch likes to pressure people, but why did he come in here to run into the H-Bomb?
Maybe Tim wanted to punish Hendo and ruin the legend as quickly as possible as many thought he could, but Hendo took a bomb, then immediately turned it on Boetsch with a right hand, a knee and a BRUTAL uppercut that would effectively end the fight. The fun part about this is that it WAS Tim Boetsch, so even after the uppercut you had to wonder if he would slowly get up to his feet and then win in the third round or something.
But no. Hendo did it. He did it!
And it all fits on one Twitter video!

So should Hendo retire? It won’t get better than this, or will it? He still has a few more fights to go on his contract, but why not go out on top?
