Wow! Didn't know that, I've seen Hendo fight live before (against Rich Franklin in Dublin)! As great as that would have been I'm more then happy with the main event! Gustafsson in Sweden will be awesome!

Cant blame him there, doesnt really help him as Lil Nog is a tier below at LHW right now.

of course there is a dude named Magnus on the first card in Sweden. Couldn't have been any other way.

i dont blame him. Lil Nog is so far down the LHW ladder it doesnt make sense for Hendo.

that being said, i think Gustafsson will win

Not only that, he's actually a very dangerous fight for Hendo.

Lil Nog has better technical boxing, an amazing chin, and slick submissions.

Hendo would be taking a big risk and with not much to gain.
