Dan Henderson added yet another championship to his impressive trophy case by unloading his torpedo of a right hand and exploding it on the face of now former titleholder Rafael Cavalcante.

At the ripe old age of 40, "Hendo" continues to impress but according to the numbers, it hasn't translated into increased viewership for Strikeforce. After two consecutive sensational knockout performances, will that change in his first title defense, whenever that may be?

Stay tuned.
