This is an AWESOME fight! I am behind Rich 100%, and I think Dan will be a very tough but beatable opponent for him.

WOW! Rich is ahead, but it's very young poll... I give it six hours before the Pride nuthuggers give Henderson a good 4 to 1 edge.

I stand by what I posted in another thread:

Either weight-class I see Franklin winning a hard-fought decision.

Pointless yes, but ultra entertaining and one we have all wanted to see for a long time. Im excited!

I think Rich has the overall better game and will win.

Good close fight.

Ive got to take hendo, and heres why:

He's a more powerful striker than rich.

I don't believe rich will KO or submit hendo.

I think rich will keep it standing due to hendos wrestling resume and I think he'll lose in a brawl.

I've said it before I'll say it again. I don't see any current 185er beating Rich franklin other than Anderson Silva. That includes 185ers who class up with him.

If Hendo doesn't come in right hand-happy, he should be able to take a somewhat controlled decision. Rich's biggest deficiency is his wrestling, and while he often employs great technical striking, his defensive wrestling has never been outstanding. I can't honestly see Franklin taking this fight unless he can somehow avert the takedown, which may very well be remote, and out-work Hendo on the feet. I honestly can't wait for this one.
