Hendos last fight on TRT. This could be the final time we see him in action, quitting TRT can wreck havock on your body and could potentially leave him a shell of his former self.

I guess only time can tell. For now, I'm looking forward to a good fight. One that probably won't be as good as the last one (How could it possibly be?) but a good fight none the less.

Quitting TRT does not wreck havock on your body TRT is not like taking steroids but having low T will make things harder

Last fight was very competitive, but all things considered Shogun is a big favorite for this one IMO.

Shogun got rocked real early in the last fight and that allowed Dan to stick around and make it a great fight. I love Dan Henderson but if he does anything but get dominated I'll be shocked. His best days are behind him and this isn't machida or rashad who will back up the whole fight. Shogun will stand in the pocket and trade and I expect Shogun to look better than last time and Dan to look worse.

I'm almost certain Shogun will TKO Hendo. Hendo should have gotten that fight against the LHW title holder then retired either way. At this point he REALLY has nothing to prove with such a long storied career of intense battles.

He's no doubt a legend in my books.

The closer we get the more excited I get. It likely won't be on the level of the 1st fight but it should still be highly entertaining. People need to forget about the 1st fight and just let this matchup stand on it's own. Will be more enjoyable that way.

I Agree I think Shogun will win. I hope it wont be the last of hendo if he does loose.. I think his experience in the cage could make up for any decline in physical attributes. But this will only take him so far. I think he will fight smart in this fight knowing its a 5 rounder and not go all out.

I had a dream that dan henderson beat shogun rua I am literally convinced Hendo is going to win that if i had $5000 I would put it on hendo with a lot of confidence and no doubt that he is going to win this .. last dream i had was about maximo blanco losing to felipe arantes and posted it here 5 days before the fight happened lol
