PRIDE 33: Silva vs. Henderson

PRIDE announced middleweight champion Wanderlei Silva will be putting his title on the line against 2005 PRIDE Welterweight Grand Prix winner Dan Henderson at PRIDE's second U.S. show - PRIDE 33: The Second Coming. This will also be the second meeting between the two - Silva won a three round unanimous decision over Henderson back in 2000 at PRIDE 12.

That ****ing sucks Don't get me wrong I love Hendo and I think it will be a good fight, but Hendo needs to fight at 183 lbs. Also this does not make me "shit my pants". Dan is a good opponent, but hardly a shocking one. Big time thumbs down to Pride for this one Wandy should be fighting Lil Nog and Hendo should be fighting either Kang or Filho. Now that would be a good card! I hope this report winds up being wrong.

I know what you're saying. Hendo has yet to defend his WW(MW) title, and this will be 2 fights in a row he's fought at 205. Obviously either Antonio Rogerio Nogueira or Ricardo Arona deserve this shot at the title much more than Hendo right now. I think PRIDE is just worried that a Wand/Rog Nog or Wand/Arona wouldn't sell well with the American fans. They think they have to put an American in there. I just want to see the best go at it. Bad matchmaking by PRIDE.

I kinda did shit my pants but thats cause I have Tim Sylvia Syndrome aka Diarhea, but this fight doesnt excite me that much even though it will probably be a good fight.

Wandy vs. Arona wouldn't sit well with American fans or any fans for that matter, because it would be another snooze-fest. Wandy vs. Lil Nog would be exciting in my opinion, but I see what you mean by wanting to have an American opponent for a US fight.
