Seeing Sonnen go in with Bones is a fight I prefer over Hendo. I belive both would get squished, but Hendo would have got squished worse. He looked god awful in the last 2.5 rounds against Rua. Sonnen has no issues with stamina.
As far as who deserves it more? Neither of them.... because they are a pair of huge knobs with dysfunctional testicles.
