Who would win: Henderson vs Sonnen

I remember this topic way back before Henderson was on a roll that he is currently in. Sonnen was fresh off of almost beating anderson silva. The numbers were shocking and in favor of sonnen. However now that Henderson has two massive victory in the bag who would win this match up?

Sonnen, it would be a good fight though. Chael has a great chin on him, he's faster, younger, and more dominant wrestler. Dan's got that one punch power and he can hit it anywhere.

I think Henderson/Evan's is a better fight for Dan than Sonnen.

That is the thing that gets me the dominant wrestling part. I know Henderson has the credential and is one hell of a wrestler. But as a mma fighter he never seems to use it, he always like to strike and land that H bomb.

Say if henderson goes in there with the mind set of only wrestling and nothing else. Is sonnen still the better wrestler? Don't get me wrong chael is a fantastic wrestler but when he is not looking to take you down he has been taking down before ie Maia. Same with Henderson when he is looking to strike he does get taking down also.

Gotta go with Sonnen, his wrestling is from another galaxy altogether.

I know he does, but say henderson only focuses on his wrestling and nothing else. Just from a wrestling stand point, if henderson were to use his wrestling would chael still dominate him in that category.

Yes still would, I love Hendo too but he is a really slow wrestler, he needs to really get you clinched up the cage to use his wrestling well like randy, chaels shots are off the charts good and dan would be repeatedly taken down and gassed out.

You might be onto something for a three round fight, I believe for a round or maybe two Henderson could have a wrestling advantage, but for five no. Sonnen has the vast cardio advantage over Henderson, and that will affect the fight.

Now, this would be an even matchup, TRT speaking i mean.
Anyway, voted Hendo to put Sonnen's face inside of his skull.
