Fedor will have the weight advantage but its not as though he's a rock solid 230. Hendo could easily come in at 230 as well if he wanted to ballon up but he won't. Fedor has the submission advantage but Dan certainly has the advantage in the clinch and in overall wrestling. Power is a pretty even match up as is their chins, it will all come down to game plans IMO. Both have tools to win, if Hendo wades forward looking for the right hand the hold time like he did against Shields he loses.

Yeah, Fedor does have the weight and submission advantage but both men have firepower. As for Henderson versus Shields, that is one of those times when Henderson realized that his body isn't what it used to be especially when it comes to cutting weight. In that remark he is done cutting weight.

fedor has forgotten he is not a knockout artist, he needs to remember by fight time to put hendo on his back and work for the sub, if not that h-bomb is gonna claim another victim.

I'm not sure that Fedor can take Henderson down. Henderson is a wrestler and Fedor is a sombo fighter who doesn't specialize in takedowns. If Henderson wants to take it to the ground it goes into Fedor's field.

I don't want to see Hendo or Fedor lose... But I'm glad I live in Chicago to witness it live (in person)!

Well I hate to see either fighter loose as well. But this fight is going to happen and there is no turning back. One man will win.

Fedor is one of those guys though who hits much harder than people expect. Watch every fight he's ever been in almost, and you can see the surprise on his opponents face once he lands a solid shot.

It's almost like his punch is more of a stun. He might throw it right away, or he might throw a few softer ones then HERP WTF was that?! /rear naked choke

For the Sig!

Yeah, Fedor is much more powerful then one would normally think. I think Sylvia got caught offguard like you mentioned. Though you have to admit there have been times he's knocked out people.

A reason I believe Fedor is a harder puncher than most heavyweights, is because he appears to lay off the heavy weights. His punching technique is poor, but his body being more naturally and body weight trained, flows freely between his legs, hips and torso, allowing him to uncoil like a spring. Watch punchers like Arturo Gatti who are similar (just with a bit more technique).
