I certainly wouldn't pick him in rematches with Jones, Machida, and Henderson and I'd favor Rashad and Gus over him at this point, I think he could beat Bader, Rampage, and some of those guys. Feijao and Mousasi might beat him too.
How much of a chance do you give him vs. Gustaf?

I agree chins fade. But Hendo has been rocked plenty and is 41 and his is not fading overall. Tough to say if Shogun's will fade until it happens. He is defiantly slower in defense and his exchanges so he gets hit clean more often these days.

I think if Gustaf wins it won't be by finish in a 3 round fight.
