"I'll tell you what, I think he should fire his trainer and hire himself a boxing trainer that teaches him how to put punches out," Diaz told Fighthub. "I don't talk no s**t.

Guess what Henderson did early in this round? Loaded up to fire off the right hand. He couldn't. Why? Because Cormier grabbed him up, lifted him over his head, and dumped him on his back. We're basically talking about a body slam, with Cormier playing the role of Hulk Hogan and Henderson looking like some pencil-necked geek.

Fans are always rooting against non-UFC promotions, be it consciously or subconsciously. It's hard not to.
