I'd favor Silva and Henderson against St. Pierre.
Wanderlei, sure his take down defense is average at best, although he hits way harder than Matt Serra and his stand up is better than St. Pierres in my opinion. On the ground, all Silva does is neutralize his opponent, so I don't see him getting finished on the ground even though St. Pierre clearly has the better ground game. They will be on their feet a lot and I can see Wanderlei catching St. Pierre some time in the fight.
Against Henderson.. Almost the same thing, except Henderson has great wrestling. Seeing that he is bigger and stronger than St. Pierre helps him in that category and he has very heavy hands, just ask Bisping and other opponents he faced before coming back to the UFC. This guy hits hard and I don't think he would worry too much about St. Pierres stand up. Henderson has a great chin so I'm sure he would be confident going against a welterweight that is moving up a weight class. On the ground, I think Henderson would have the advantage. He has olympic level wrestling and he was out wrestling a great light heavyweight in Quinton Jackson for 2 rounds before losing control of the fight. St. Pierre may have great MMA wrestling, but I think Hendersons credentials and size would be too much for him on the ground.
St. Pierre probably would have a better chance against Wanderlei because of the possibility that he might be able to take him down consistently. I don't see a comfort zone for him if he fought Henderson.
I'd like to see Wanderlei Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre happen soon. It would be interesting and a fight I'd never think of seeing a few years ago.
