I agree with you completly. Dan has the wrestling calibre to take Fedor down, the best chin in MMA to take his punches, the power to knock him out and the sub defence to not get tapped. Dan has fought heavyweights before and beat them, beating Fedor doesn't seem that silly, he probably on has about 10 lbs more muscle than Hendo and the rest of the weight difference sits on his belly.

Suuuure. Just like Scott Smith was better than Cung Le too right.

That being said, while Le is one of the mosty underrated fighters in Strikeforce, he's definitely not championship material, especially against Silva. The weakest aspect of Sanshou (his stand up art) is the hands. The legs are brutal, but the hands are lackluster. And for that reason Silva would light Le up, and likely KO him in the first or second at best.

Melendez vs Edgar. I f-ing hate the scrap pack (except Shields) but I have to give Melendez props, his stand up is serious business. I think Edgar is faster, and has better wrestling, but if Melendez landed anything powerful with any regularity, he could get the TKO.

This "superfight" is more of a freakshow than anything else. If Fedor doesn't completely change his training, he'll catch a beatdown like no other from Henderson.

I think Silva tools Le, Edgar beats Melendez in a good fight, and Dan Henderson does way better than most would think but Fedor still wins.
