I don't really care who'd win, but I'd definitely not miss that war

If Jake Shields was able to lay on Hendo for 4 rounds I'm sure Sonnen could

Are they fighting at MW or LHW? Hendo barely has 1 round of cardio at MW. Sonnen probably wins either way but the chance of seeing him laid out from an H-Bomb is very enticing.

Yeah, this was my first thought also. Hendo could land that one shot, but I see Sonnen laying on him for a majority of the fight.

Before the Shogun fight I picked Dan but watching how easily Shogun got Dan down (gassed or not), it is quite clear in my mind that Sonnen would literally manhandle him to a decision.

Hard to say, Henderson might be able to catch Sonnen with the H bomb early and put him away. But I think if the fight last a little while Sonnen would eventually overwhelm Henderson with his wrestling and win the fight

Wow. Tough fight to call. I lean toward Sonnen due to being younger and bigger but would not shock me if Hendo won. I think Sonnen would be able to take Hendo down but I do not think Hendo could take Sonnen down.

I think Sonnen has the better ground game.

When thinking about this the Sheilds fight just sticks in my head. I know Hendo had issues for that fight as far as his back and the weight cut but Sonnen is a far better wrestler than Sheilds and has good cardio.

Fav Fighters:

Sonnen would probably UD him. But in my mind I see hendo coming out wearing this:

'merica **** yea! And h-bombing sonnen in .2sec, herb says go hendo is flying across the ring slow-mo kinda scenario.

Bah probably sonnen wins
