The Iceman v. Hendo
Who do you think would win a fight if Chuck Liddell fought Dan Henderson with both of the being in their primes?

On paper it looks like a pretty good fight

Both have great wrestling, Chuck with his sprawl vs Hendo and his takedowns.

Chuck has the better striking but Hendo has the H-Bomb.

Both have Iron Jaws, Hendo has never been KOed, and outside of the first Randy fight I can't remember anyone stopping Chuck with strikes before his rapid decline.

I would have to give Hendo the edge in cardio just because he is so accustomed to going the distance.

So how do you think a fight between these two would go?

EDIT: Sorry I forgot to mention it would be a five round fight.

Chuck was no stranger going through wars back in the day like with Belfort and Bustamante. Hendo would have a hell of a time taking him down and even if he did, he wouldn't be able to keep him there.

I don't see Chuck being able to KO Dan, but he definitely would have landed a lot more. Chuck by decision probably all three rounds.

I know I'm probably in the minority, but I'm confident his chin would hold up longer than Chuck's. It would have been an epic fight for sure.

Chuck would have turned Dan's lights out. Dan throws bombs but they are sloppy punches that he throws with his head down. A great counter puncher like Chuck was would just have flipped Hendo's switch.

Hendo in his prime was like 190 pounds it is hard for him to make MW now because he gained around 30 pounds not because he is old...

So Chuck would have destroyed him since he would have huge size and striking advantages.

Chuck never fought an elite striker during his reign, he fought Vitor but that was a little before his time as Champ, Dan also fought and beat Vitor.

Dan's always had the better chin, Chuck was getting stopped well before he was out of his prime by Couture and Rampage, Dan would have done the same thing.

Hendo by TKO Round 2.

Chuck by decision, being the better technical striker. Both fighters like to bang and use their wrestling mostly to counter takdowns, so it would be a standup fight I'm pretty sure. If hendo got lucky he might land a bomb and KO Chuck, but I think 8/10 Chuck would take it.

Hedo, he was the better fighter overall. Chuck on paper is the better striker but i think hedo in his prime was good enough to stand with him. Plus hedo had Ko power and the h bomb.

2 powerful brawlers, got to give it to the one with IMO the best chin in MMA.

I originally thought Hendo but Chuck would have ****ed Hendo up.

I always have wanted to know the back-story behind this pic.

And yeah Hendo has a great chin but it also has to do with developing better defense, he used to hit the deck every time someone touched him. still one of the best in MMA though.

Also like Osmium was saying, Hendo was pretty small until he started the Testosterone Therapy

So "Prime"(i think he is better now then he ever was back then)Hendo would have gotten demolished.
