it was surprising that NEITHER went for the kill when they had rocked the other... Hendricks, just played smart. He didnt want the finish, he wanted the TITLE. And he did what he had to do to get it, not rush in and get caught with a counter KO punch... that we all could see happening if he got reckless. Recognition of the situation is a key in any victory.
He just proved he has the "smarts" to keep the belt.
Shame for Condit, yes. Bum legs all around these days.
too soon? lol.
