Both fighters are awsome, and like someone stated Hendo has titanium balls 4 sure.
I really can't see how Fedor would lose this, he has the grappling & striking advantage & both have granite chins. I'd see Fedor taking it even at 205 but with the weight-advantage it just swings too much in his favour. Tho I would never count Hendo out as he is a threat to any fighter.
Like shark said it's sad that Fedor couldn't just drop the weight, he is a very small & fat HW and it kind of messes up the fight with the weight-difference. Still one of the most exciting matchups of the year.

I see fedor taking this easily he has the weight advantage speed,submissions and has a stronger will than hendo also hendo can not put the beating on fedor that bigfoot did and fedor still fought to the end and was only stopped by a doctor
Agree with everything except will, I have never doubted Hendos will.

Henderson is awesome, definately granite ballz. But so does Fedor given he has been fighting much bigger men for a long time now!

I think Fedor wins this easily, but I will be rooting for Hendo for sure!!!!

Exactly. Fedor has often been praised for fighting much bigger opponents, and also ridiculed for fighting much smaller opponents. In reality Fedor clearly has never been worried about his opponents size.

Both of these men have balls of steel.

Indeed Ape. These two guys + BJ and Mousasi all have some crazy confidence (or maybe their just crazy)!

I can see Henderson knocking out Fedor. But I can also see it going the other way as well. This is just one of those fights.

Would never flame someone for having a reasonable opinion.

I actually think it is more likely that Hendo kos Fedor than the other way around. Personally I think it will be a three round war!

...Two great legends. Personally- if either guy wins, I'm happy with it. Maybe a little more for Fedor because of the huge plunge he has taken. Fedor is past his prime and looks pretty close to hanging it up. Hendo has surged like never before. Dan has amazingly peaked at 40. Hendo's gameplan is fairly simple, he wants to bang. He loads up with that golden right hand and if he lands it flush, big trouble. But seriously, On paper Fedor has the power, weight and most certainly the submission game advantage over Hendo. I think the wrestling is a tough call cause Dan can hold his own with anybody, especially in the clinch. This fight has me intrigued for certain. Both have amazing chins and have never been knocked out cold. I don't know where Fedor's head is at this point so it's a tough call. Fedor should have at least a 25 lb weight advantange, so Dan won't be ragdollin' Fedor. I have a feeling it's going to be a battle of the right hands. Hendo has one punch KO power but against Fedor's skills, size and top notch chin, it will take more than one big right hand to finish off Fedor. This fight is another landmark fight in MMA history...
