Gonna look like a re-run of Jones/Rampage.

Jones keeps him at bay with kicks before he manhandles him to the ground where he subs him or smashes him from the top with strikes.

Yeah I agree, although I'm desperately holding onto my delusions of an unconscious JJ. It's been getting hard after the last year of genuinely believing the last 3 guys had a good chance to win.

I love both these guys. I kinda want to see Hendo get the KO just for the sheer sake of the upset and Hendo being a complete badass.

Hopin for the upset but doubting it comes....I'm a sucker for an under dog. If Dan doesn't connect by the second maybe the third he will get taken down at will and finished....that is if Jones is brave enough to keep it standing that long

I'm not worried about the outcome I'm just curious what each of their game plan is.

Scenario 1: JBJ crouches in the opening seconds and Hendo just charges in with an uppercut and makes it as dirty and messy as possible.

Scenario 2: JBJ plays it safe and keeps Hendo at bay. Thing is Hendo is crazy enough to charge in with his right overhand looking for a simultaneous takedown ala Fedor style.

Regardless, Hendo's style is pretty much like the Chute Box system. He wins by exchanging. He knocked out Wandy the same way, hurt Shogun badly, KOed Feijao, snuck a right uppercut to Fedor in the scramble, KOed Babalu with GNP, heck he's one of the only few next to Wandy who exchanged with Rampage full on.

Really the way I see it...he's got nothing to lose. He should just go for broke. He knows he can't last all five rounds. So why not try finishing the first round.

Wow!

- 700 for JBJ
+ 500 for Hendo

It's so worth it to put down $20.

I think Jones will use his reach here and stay out of trouble. Hendo will gas after a couple of rounds and be taken down where the fight will end.

Though I'd put my money on Jones I think Dan Henderson has a decent chance of winning this fight. A lot of Jones's take downs come from the upperbody, he likes to use his incredible strength to throw guys but it won't be easy to throw Dan Henderson. If Henderson is able to get the advantage over Jones and get him to the ground things could be very interesting. On the feet Jones likely will be able to out point Henderson, but if someone is going to get a knockout from stand up it will most likely be Henderson. Jones's striking is good he uses his range well but overall he is no expert on the feet and I wouldn't be shocked to see him get caught one day and knocked out, Dan Henderson may be the guy to do that with his big right hand.

My most likely scenario for how the fight will play out is Jones uses his range to avoid the right hand of Henderson and land some strikes. Henderson not only looks for a big right hand but also looks to use his wrestling. I eventually expect Jones to over power Henderson and at some point get him on his back and do some serious damage likely ending the fight in the 3rd or 4th round. But if someone is going to beat Jones at light heavyweight I think Henderson is the guy with the best chance.

hopefully Hendo can close the distance, clinch and land the H bomb. Can't see it happening though unfortunatley
