So much for Dan Henderson being over-the-hill. The 44-year old middleweight landed a few H-Bombs to stop Tim Boetsch in less than 30 seconds and is now certain to fight again. It’s great to see him win but I stand by my assertion that I’d like to see him retire sooner rather than later.
You can see his finish here.
It was a very fitting end to a night of exciting brawls which delivered ten finishes from the twelve fights. All six fights on the main card ended inside the distance with only one fight making it out of the first round.
Here’s a look at the remaining finishes from the Fight Night 68 main card in New Orleans on Saturday night.
As predicted this fight didn’t last very long, however it was an opportunistic Ben Rothwell submission which did for Matt Mitrione.
McGregor victim Dustin Poirier looks like a title-contender at lightweight, picking up a second straight KO win at the weight against the talented Yancy Medeiros.
The longest lasting fight on the main card and the most entertaining scrap of the night. Brian Ortega stopped Thiago Tavares in the third round of this bloody battle.
More was expected of Joe Soto after he took TJ Dillashaw in to the fifth round in his previous fight. His stock took a serious hit as he ended up face down on the canvas after 97 seconds of the first round following a flurry of shots from Anthony Birchak.
The fastest finish on a night of fast finishes. Former TUF competitor Alex Caceres could be on the chopping block after losing to Francesco Rivera in 21 seconds.
