VFD Presents: UFC Fight Night 68 Recap: Hendo Rules!
The UFC hit New Orleans this past Saturday with UFC Fight Night 68, where the legend Dan Henderson was reborn. If you missed his knockout of Tim Boetsch, go back and check it out here. The video will answer the Dan Henderson retirement plans anytime soon question pretty emphatically. The old Hendo was out for a head and Tim Boetsch got in his way. Sometimes in the UFC, you just have to expect the unexpected.
In the co-main event, Ben Rothwell submitted Matt Mitrione in the first round of their heavyweight battle after Mitrione made a poor takedown attempt. What stole the show though was Rothwell’s post fight interview, where he had some intense words to say about his goals and politics in the UFC, and finished the promo with a bizarre evil laugh. It was very WWE.
Hometown favorite Dustin Poirier put a beat down on Yancy Medeiros in a lightweight bout. He poured it on Medeiros in the first round and got the early TKO to the crowds delight.
VFD gives brands opportunities to take advantage of the growing popularity of MMA and the UFC. This show stacked up against some of the best shows this year. The finishes were amazing, a living legend was reborn and New Orleans got an epic event.
