Time-honored mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Dan Henderson staved off any talk of his pending retirement with an electrifying first round knockout of tough competitor Tim Boetsch in the main event of last night’s (Sat., June 6, 2015) UFC Fight Night 68 from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Boetsch came out true to his ‘Barbarian’ namesake, perhaps rushing the power punching ‘Hendo’ a bit too aggressively as it spelled his undoing.

He was cracked with a patented ‘H-bomb’ and blasted with a huge Muay Thai knee and an uppercut followed by an onslaught of damage that left Boetsch trying to wrestle the referee.

With the big win, the 44-year-old ‘Hendo’ will find new life at middleweight for the time being. Watch the full fight video highlights of his much-needed win above.
