Pretend with me.
You're in the Octagon with a former Olympic wrestler and undefeated mixed martial artist. His name is Daniel Cormier, but that really doesn't matter.
What matters is that this man weighs 30 pounds more than you, and he's tossing you on your head and punching you in the jaw.
You're getting crushed.
After two rounds of utter humiliation, Cormier takes your back in Round 3, sinks in a rear-naked choke and sends you to the land of the unconscious before you have a chance to tap out.
You're awakened by a flashlight, loud cheering and a monstrous man parading around the Octagon with his hand in the air.
What's he so happy about? He looks kind of familiar...
All of this happens in a matter of 15 minutes.
What do you do?
If you're Dan Henderson, you throw your arm around Joe Rogan and tell jokes in a post-fight speech.
That...that's not normal.
Henderson was so calm and relaxed after being ragdolled and choked out by Cormier that I have to wonder if his brain is truly the same as mine. Is the "Hendo" a rare species from ancient times?
His reaction was so far from reasonable, so insanely brawny, that fans really have no choice to but applaud him and his undeniable toughness.
