I would love to see this fight. Watching Tito take repeated blows to the head makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I would love to see this fight too, or even Hendo vs Rashad. I'm curious to see how Henderson's wrestling matches up with them




What a stud

What are you saying, Henderson hits harder?! my biased opinion tells me no one hits harder than Chuck!

Anyways, Henderson will probably win but I wouldn't be surprised if Tito utilized his strength (like he usually does) and makes this a pretty close fight. Hendersons a very accomplished greco roman wrestler like Couture who spanked Tito but Couture fights at heavyweight and Hendersons ideal weight is middleweight. I mean Hendersons a better wrestler than Rampage but that didnt stop Rampage from outlasting him and using his brute power. This fights alot closer than one may think.

Hendo doesnt have the reach or the striking style to bother Tito to much. Hendo's a brawler, not a technically sound or high level striker, but his brawling is none the less effective.

As previosly mentioned Tito is alot bigger, he has about 30lbs on Hendo let alone a much bigger frame and he's 2 to 3 inches taller. I think this fight has the potential to be very close but im leaning towards Tito for the win. On paper Hendo should smash him but with the recent upsets im going with my gut rather than my head, Tito all the way.

People have been kind of overestimating Hendo since the Wandy fight. Yes the guy is a beast, but his stand up is overrated and if is going to win the majority of his fights in the cage its going to be because of his wrestling.

What people need to remember though is that the first 3 rounds of the Rampage fight Hendo was fresh and very competitive. It was in the 4th and 5th where he started to gas and had most of his problems. If he fights Tito its going to be a 3 rounder where hell be able to push the pace. Personally I dont think Tito with his size would be able to push him around. If he tries to Trade with Dan its going to be a quick night.

This fight would still be awesome though. I expect Tito to come back hungry after his last performance and you know Dan is always game. Just want to see more of my boy Hendo in the cage after his fight against Page.

I'll be happy to see Hendo get more recognition from UFC fans after this fight. And of course I'll be happy just to see the guy fight, he's one of my favorites.

Despite the fact that I recently made a thread complementing Tito, I just don't think he outwrestle, or outstrike or submit Dan.

So I'll have to say Dan via (T)KO

Forum Bets: 2-0
