Hendo is a broken down version of the fighter he once was who just throws the same looping overhand time and again and it's to easy to telegraph so I am saying Vitor takes it and looks impressive doing it.

People forget that Dan Henderson is one of those mysterious fighters that when he's down we write him off, but some how he makes a come back. Look in the last six to seven years at his career.

Lost to page then silva... ko bisping was backed
Lost to Jake Sheild....started koing people including fedor
Lost the last two fights by split decision, beats vitor the henderson train will start again.

You have two guys on Trt, both strikers, this is going to be a war. I don't know who will win, I would say Henderson based on he has a chin.

It amazes me how many people act as if Hendo is so one-dimensional NOW. He has fought like this for a while now. Sure he used to use his wrestling, but he hasn't for a while. What was he supposed to take and keep Machida, Rashad, or Fedor down? He hasn't fought guys he can just take down. And he has been a wild cocked right hand brawler for a while now. He was never that versatile. Back when he had his wrestling going, his timing and hands weren't near as good. Now he has one real dangerous right hand and at 42 years old his wrestling is lacking behind.

Well... Henderson is so old that the last 5 years could be seen as "now".

Hendo's chin and ability to hide being wobbled is legendary, but any minute now you can expect this rule to be broken.

Belfort is one of a few guys that can do this, Shogun nearly did but Vitor is firing on all cylinders and utilizing experience well, just like Hendo did before his past couple fights.

Vitor doesn't have the chin nor heart Shogun does. Like I said, Hendo ain't Bisping or Rockhold. When he lands something, Vitor will feel it, and crumble.

Maybe, but Vitor's attack is on top form right now, I think he overwhelms Hendo. Hendo's power is scary but Vitor has it too and right now is a more threatening fighter overall, with better defense. If Vitor has a scare early on, he can outlast Dan no doubt.

This was a deja vu moment for me. I was thinking of this exactly before I even saw this post. Reason being I was thinking of all the fighters who had ups and downs in their careers then a winning streak beginning with The Reem, Wand, Vitor, GSP, Denis Kang, Hector, and Hendo.

Last night I watched Rashad vs Hendo. I've been working so damn much I had no idea they even fought...haha! Well, Hendo is the same as always. Right hand tucked under his chin cocked ready to go. Wings his punches and goes off balance. Still can take any amount of punishment and still stand. But definitely is significantly slower and tends to gas in the latter rounds.

Hendo KOs people who get caught off guard or decides to engage foolishly without backing up, sidestepping, or using angles. Even Evans got clipped, well that happens in every fight. Vitor already fought Hendo to a draw. He knows what Hendo is capable of AND he'll also have Rashad in his corner which is a plus.

Vitor should fight a smart game plan and take his time. Go for takedowns and wear old man Dan down.

Dan vs any brawler is a KOTN material.
- Thiago Silva
- Wand III

Vitor vs anybody is always exciting.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
