I think Rich is going to dominate in almost every position, with the exception being in the clinch. On the ground, i honestly think Rich will be able to sweep Hendo.
same here but is like a month away once the dust clears from UFC 92 everyone will be creaming themselves for this fight



Thanks to Plazz for the awesome sig

Henderson vs Franklin is a really interesting fight but it makes sense that it's not being hyped.

I mean #1 It has no real impact on a title picture. Neither of these guys are high on the 205 ladder and no one wants Henderson vs Anderson 2 except Henderson and Not even Franklin wants Franklin vs Anderson 3.

#2 They are both just nice I mean some people dislike Henderson but almost everyone likes both of these guys.

#3 This card is stuck between 92 with 3 big fights and 94 with a champion vs champion fight.

Think about it Shogun's return isn't even getting that much hype on a forum full of Shogun lovers (or at least it used to be)

There is a lot to look forward to in MMA over the next couple of months. Just a couple years ago the Ace/Hendo fight was one of those dream fights you never thought would ever happen. These two are going to beat each other up in a 3 round war. Rich will pepper Dan from the outside, but Hendo will work over Franklin in the clinch and score a couple of takedowns. Should be a good contender to FotN along with the Lytle/Davis match.

"Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man."

93 is an amazing card for sure! Hendo/Franklin is a fight I have been wanting to see forever and it being at 205 makes it even better. Plus the return of Shogun?! And the debut of Kang?

I agree that its just not getting the love it normally would because of all the shows planned.

UFC 92, Dynamite, Sengoku, UFC 93, Day of Reckoning, WEC 38, and UFC 94 are all amazing and all within a month of each other.

It feels like Shogun has been out of commission forever, and his last performance wasn't spectacular. I'm just hoping that knee is fully recovered.

They both got knocked out by silva. Thats the first thought I had when I heared of this fight. Thats not generating excitement for me. This fight might be good, but its not interesting for me. I hope franklin wins because I think he has a brighter future than henderson(if this can be said at their age).

Everybody underestimates the kick to the groin. Some people underestimate the Rich Franklin kick to the liver.
