UFC Fight Night 38 in Tweets: Pros react to the roller coaster ride that was Dan Henderson vs. Shogun Rua, more

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Heading into Sunday night, it'd been two and a half years since Dan Henderson had last tasted the sweet fruits of victory. Apparently, all "Hendo" needed was a bit of the ol' Shogun Rua magic to get those juices flowing once more.

At 43 years young, Henderson somehow survived a torrential onslaught in his rematch against Rua at UFC Fight Night 38, nearly succumbing to strikes not just once, but twice, before unleashing one more H-Bomb for the ages. Henderson caught Rua with a right inside hook to the jaw, Rua dropped, and the old man finished off his handiwork to claim a thrilling third-round TKO win... and, at least for the time being, quiet all those pesky calls for his retirement.

Of course, as always, the mixed martial arts community couldn't help but revel in the legend-on-legend carnage it was witnessing. And so, for tonight's Pros React, our timeline picks up right where the two former champs left off, trading blows in what essentially served as round six of their campaign, right before Rua nearly ended the night early. Enjoy.
