This is one of the few fights that has me hyped in SF. Hendo might have been a MW, but he has been jumping between LHW and MW for quite some time now and managed to capture both WW(MW) and MW(LHW) titles in Pride. As pretty much proven by his last showing in MW (Shields) and his most recent wins in LHW, Dan fits LHW much better at this point in his career.

Fedor as everyone knows could easily make LHW if he chose to, but feels confortable at his HW class. Looking at the picture, Fedor isn't much bigger than Hendo and I am sure if he were to lose weight both would have somewhat similar frames. This is going to be a good fight, but I have Fedor taking this.

This is what the haters will say:
Fedor won against a MW, meh.
Fedor lost to a MW, LMAO.
Your probably right about what haters will say, but true MMA fans know whats up. I don't see any shame in getting beat by Hendo, Im a huge Henderson fan, but Im not so sure he takes this, I think its going to be a pretty good fight.

100% agreed. Too bad the vocal ones are the just bleed fans and haters.

Me, I've been a big fan of both fighters for years. As a fan of MMA, I think despite both being a little overgrown now, this is a very exciting fight.

Fedor already has the underhook in Fedor Sub Round 1 .Honestly though Fedors coaches said that he completely ignored their strategy against Silva and that he skipped a bunch of practices.this fight will b quick




HW: Fedr
LHW:Cormier

So pumped for this fight. Want Fedor to win but wouldn't mind seeing Hendo pull off the upset. Win-win

Never knew that. I think a quick sub loss to Werdum and being beaten by an absolute giant are two losses not to be ashamed of. Everyone loses. Fedor is still great. I really, really want Fedor to land a huge over the top right and give Dan's chin a test. I don't want the reverse to happen even though I love Hendo as well

It's one of those bigger inches. Or maybe Fedor wore his high heels.

I'm really excited for this one.

Fedor is going to hit Dan harder than he's ever been hit. But, fedor isn't invincible and he never was. That's what I always liked about him. I think his real talent is against larger less athletic men.

The only other time I can remember him having this much size and strength advantage was against Matt Lindland.

Matt came within one illegal rope grab of being named "BADDEST MAN ON THE PLANET"
