    Yes but I bet that it was Seagal who teached Leroy that move.
    So in theory we can safely say that Bendo retained his title thanks to Seagal!
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    That's because he wasn't fighting Cerrone or Miller.

    Yeah but he usually employs the same style regardless of who he's fighting and that wasn't it but props to Bendo for basically nullifying that, im sure the eye had something to do with it but it happens

    An off performance? It never happens in MMA! Only every other single sport on the face of the earth! (Not really).

    Bendo had a wonderful performance himself as well, though.

    On a further note, I find it quite interesting that a losing fighter can't explain what happened in a fight without it being considered an excuse, pretty amazing really.

    "I got smoked in the eye so I couldn't see" Is it actually hard for anyone to believe that that punch would make it hard for Diaz to see? lol

    I hope this isn't too big, because it's awesome.

    Dude, I was just trolling to see who would get all worked up.

    But on a serious note, fuck Nate Diaz. lol

    If they fought 10 times, I think Bendo would win convincingly 9 out of those 10 fights.
    Indeed. I really don't see how he looked any different in this fight than any other fight he's been in. He still failed to check leg kicks, he still got outwrestled, and on the feet Bendo was just way too fast for him. Diaz looked the same he did against Miller.

    normally I shy away from these type post as it is usually sour grapes or how they were injured prior to the fight but Nat told the truth here. We did not see the amazing super fight we all expected because Henderson connected with a punch early that pretty much won him the fight .A fighter that explains why he lost rather than make excuses,How can you argue with that. I hate we did not see the super fight we all were expecting but it was a great performance by Henderson and I have much more respect for Diaz now that he not only told the truth but stuck it out as well.
    never argue with a fool. people listening may not know the difference.

    He just learned the move not to mention its a bizzare strike that not many likely train for...

    The Diaz brothers are are also known for leaving their lead leg too far out.
