History excuses Hendo’s second punch

With Dan Henderson’s flying forearm last weekend creating a tidal wave of negativity, it’s time to take a look back at legitimate late hits. You see, this isn’t the first – or last – time someone will get hit while unconscious. The history of MMA is littered with ‘extra’ strikes; the idea that Henderson/Bisping is the most egregious example just reeks of yellow journalism attempting to cover for botched UFC 100 coverage.

For all of those who need a refresher course on actual borderline despicable moments, there are many GIFs and videos after the jump.
