See I don't think Anderson can KO Hendo. He ussually does so much damage to guys that they quit losing by TKO, Hendo doesn't ussually quit. I think Hendo will win by UD, wrestling, standing, ect. I think he'll try and get his right off but I don't see him standing for to long. I honestly don't care who wins.
The thing is a TKO does not come from the guy getting hit, it comes from the ref deciding the other guy can't go on. We've all seen fights where someone is conscious and wants to keep fighting but is eating shot after shot with no credible defense and is just totally overwhelmed due to a stunning blow.
If their is a TKO on the feet, it will be this way, Hendo gets hit and temporarily stunned and then eats a million laser guided punches and the ref steps in afraid of brain damage.
If their is a TKO on the ground it will be Hendo dropping torrent of heavy elbows and hammerfists.
Someone mentioned that Hendo's clinch as a silver metal greco guy is going to be better than Silva's... those clinches are worlds apart. If Anderson gets the plum Hendo is going to scramble like mad to either trip him, or escape... because despite what Hendo thinks, if the plum is picked trying to throw him or punch out of it is damn difficult, and I don't think he is good enough.
OTOH He IS good enough to keep the plum from being grabbed, and in his interview where he talks about not getting out of position to open himself up to strikes this is probably what he is refering to. By all rights Hendo should never have to worry about the plum because any clinches should involve over and under hooks, his bread and butter.
