I love a good upset too but I see Hendo winging big punches but coming up way short and eventually getting choked.

Does anyone else see the similarities here between this fight and GSP Vs. Sera 1? It's frightening if you ask me. I know Hendo didn't do a reality show, but he did leave for Strikeforce, only to see it purchased by the very company he left. He picked up a few wins there and now comes back the crafty veteran yet massive underdog against the "unstoppable" young champion. Just seems like I've read this story before...

A lot of people talk about how Jones is going to hold the LHW division hostage until he moves to HW, Anderson Silva style... I'm just wondering if that's going to be the case, or if we've got a GSP story in the making here... cause if anyone can tell the story that way instead, it's Henderson.

Having said that, totally voted for Jones.

I think Jones will dominate Henderson, but it won't surprise me if Henderson lands a big shot and hurt, or even KO Jones.
Voted on Jones, but put 100k on Henderson because I can't resist those odds

Jones will do just enough to win? Huh? Jones usually goes out there and destroys his opponents and gives them the worst beating of their lives. You make it sound like Jones goes out there and just squeaks by a decision win every time. I'm confused by your comment.

I can understand people not liking Jon Jones the person, but Jon Jones the fighter, can any one honestly say they don't get excited watching Jones perform?

Whilst I agree that JWPs comment is a tad extreme, I do think that Bones is less exciting then he used to be. He takes far less risks and does exactly what he needs to to win. Not saying that's good or bad. The calibre of opponent has gone up so some caution is to be expected. But I had more fun watching early Bones then this new effective terminator.

I'd love for Hendo to pull something out but I feel like Jones has him beat in every department except H-bomb.
