Yeah, that about sums it up.

Dan Henderson returned home this weekend after his epic knockout of Hector Lombard to an epic sign on his garage, put up by his neighbors. The MMA legend posted a picture of the sign Monday on Twitter.

Henderson knocked out Lombard in the second round Saturday night at UFC 199. Hendo rocked Lombard with a head kick and then, when Lombard tried to catch the leg and take him down, starched Lombard with a back elbow to the temple. Lombard went down like a ton of bricks and Henderson finished up with an elbow on the ground.

It was a brutal knockout and certainly a career highlight for the 45-year-old luminary, who said this might have been his last MMA fight. Henderson's contract with the UFC is now up.

Henderson (32-14) has won two of three fights now, but also has lost by knockout in three of his last seven fights. Going out with a knockout win over a very good fighter like Lombard would be ideal, but Hendo certainly can make a case to keep going. There are probably still money fights in his future.

In his career, Henderson has beaten the likes of Fedor Emelianenko, Mauricio Rua, Vitor Belfort, Wanderlei Silva and new UFC champion Michael Bisping.
