Threads like these are such a testament to Shogun. 31 years old, best years behind him, multiple surgeries, built a career on quick stoppages but past two fights have been lengthy brawls... yet most people are still on the fence for who to bet on when he's facing a 25 year old beast who is bigger, faster and trickier than most guys in the division.

Gustaf is a monster and anyone who downplays the Silva fight is a fool, he tooled Thiago Silva. He will stand with Shogun. Shogun is crafty and always lands something but will not hesitate in taking the fight to the ground. Gun to my head I pick Gustaf, his 'girlish' movement is something that most guys in the division cannot handle, and I guarantee he hits as hard or harder than Hendo... but Shogun is one of the few who will not be fazed by this and has the skills to make it his fight.

Nailed it - this is what I was trying to explain. It's quite unusual.

Seriously doubt that. I don't think Gus has half the power Hendo has. Fedor would make Gus his bitch.

He's 6'5, faster than Hendo and dropping everyone. Gustaf's power is just as much a concern as Hendo's, I won't make up some random stats, be assured you don't want either guy to hit you clean.

I don't want anyone to hit me clean. But if I got to pick 1 of them to take a clean shot from, I'll be standing in the Gus line. When it comes down to just punching power, I got Hendo by a wide margin. I'm not saying that Gus isn't just as dangerous a striker or even a better striker. I just don't think he has Hendo level power. Not many do.

What's Gus being 6'5 got to do with any thing regarding his power compared to Hendo lol? Are 6'5 fighters meant to have scary KO power or some thing.

All I know is that when Gus moved to Vegas no one would spar with him because he was kicking everyone ass. Forrest said something along the lines that hit him harder than anyone else ever has.

Having said that. Henderson has more power than anyone else in the game right now. No one is taking clean shots and staying up. The only reason shogun survived is because Dan was gassed.
