Alot of people are assuming the JBJ will beat Hendo when they fight and I do agree with them... but just for the sake of fun lets just say that Hendo catches JBJ with an H Bomb midway through the third after a very competitive fight.
Where does the UFC go from there...
Um...the same direction they've always been going. A legend would have a well earned belt. Jon Jones may be sponsored by the UFC, (or so people say) but a loss to a legendary such as Dan Henderson fighter won't hurt the UFC, or even him. As a matter of fact, I think it will make him better and more dangerous because he will know what legitimately losing feels like, and he'll do what ever it takes not to let it happen again.
Who does Hendo defend the title against?
My guess would be Gustoffson, Ryoto/Darth winner, or possibly Stephen Bonner.
Where does JBJ go from there?
Back to the drawing board.
How many fights till JBJ gets the rematch?
Probably one or two. But hopefully no instant re-matches because I hate that shit. (assuming Hendo wins)
How high would you rank Hendo in the P4P rankings?
I don't really believe in a specific P4P ranking list per say (Just the AS is at the top), however, I would most definitely consider Hendo to be a legend of the sport, more so than he already is.
For me Id have Hendo defend against Shogun, or against Silva at 195 only if the UFC can get a card in Cowboys Stadium, JBJ test the waters at HW a la Silva Irvin style, Then another fight at LHW for the #1 contender spot, and I'd rank Hendo at Number 2 P4P
To be honest, I think that's a bit on the unrealistic side of things. I don't really understand how people say Jon Jones is "Big and belongs at heavyweight". He's a good size at LHW imo, not too big. He just has a long reach. Not to say I wouldn't like to see him fight some guys at heavyweight, because I would most definitely be interested in seeing that. However, to say he's too big for LHW is a stretch. Hell, when JBJ and Anthony Johnson (former welterweight) were sitting beside each other on Inside MMA< Anthony Johnson actually looked bigger. But I digress...
As much as I like JBJ, Dan Hendo Henderson becoming LHW champion would be none other than Badass. His title defenses would be legendary for sure, and quite honestly I would see him retiring on top, whether its right after winning the title, or after a few title defenses. I definitely don't see (or hope) is career doesn't go the direction of Ken Shamrock, and he fights until he's damn near physically unable.
That concludes my o.o2
