First I want to start by saying I don't think Dan Henderson is that good anymore. The bright side is that you don't have to be that good to beat Babalu. In the last 3 years he's done nothing impressive. Babalu sneaked out a decision against Lawler, a MW with hardly any top wins in his career. He also beat Sokky, but all you have to do is survive the first round to beat him. Babalu isn't a great fighter, he's a descent fighter. I don't think he has the goods to beat Hendo.

Just like Jake Shields had no chance against Dan Henderon.

Babalu is a one trick pony and when that one trick is BJJ you better be able to get the fight to your area, something I really don't see happening. Babalu isn't taking Dan down and standing even though Hendo's striking is far from world class he's much better than Babalu and there's no way Babalu's KO'ing Hendo. Hendo by TKO 2nd round. As for the guys saying "he was supposed to beat Shields" Shields although the underdog going into that fight by alot of people on this forum, is a much better fighter than Babalu and also vastly different, his wrestling is way better than Babalu's. Babalu is mediocre at best, Dan may be old but I'll take him all day here.

Sobral has very decent kickboxing. He may not be a world class striker, but he's got standup on his resume for sure.

I mean yeah he's kinda okay he's not a complete can standing or anything but do you honestly think he's gonna KO or TKO Hendo because I don't. Even at this stage in his career I dont think Hendo should lose this match, I think he will keep the fight standing and get a TKO. Hendo is gonna make Sobral brawl and I dont think Babalu can win a brawling fight against Dan.

Babalu has very good wresting, I wouldn't say Shields' is way better.

Favourite Fighter

Renato Sobral

Always appreciating the fine workings of Sakara, Almeida, Gonzaga

I would personally and either way his isn't good enough imo to take Dan Henderson down. The way I see this fight going is, Hendo lures Babalu into brawling with him and eventually drops him and TKO's him.
