Come on these pros are ******* delusional. Yeah Hendo has a chance and he is a great fighter but Franklin has been with the best and is just about Henderson. I couldn't believe how one sided it was...

I was going to pick Franklin but I see Gabe Ruediger has picked Henderson so now I'm unsure.

very evenly-matched fight on paper... it all depends on how Henderson approaches this fight. If he utilizes his superior wrestling, Henderson should be able to grind out a decision. I do see a lot of brawling and scrambling in this one.

Well actually Franklin has only faced 2 fighters that can be said to be close to the best. Anderson & Machida.

Hendo's resume is by far the most impressive of the two.

I think it will be a decision victory for whoever wins, I can't really see a stoppage. I really like Hendo but I am leaning towards Ace. I just think that Franklin is the more well rounded fighter but its so hard to pick against Hendo because he, like Franklin has huge heart and not to mention an iron chin and that nasty right hand.

I think it goes back and forth for three rounds with Rich constantly defending the takedowns but getting the better of the striking and thus getting a split decision victory.

Damn did I mention this is hard to call? Rarely do I not have a favorite going into the fight, I like both of these guys...oh well I gotta pick one.

I have to go with Rich in this one. Rich is an animal, and I love the quote "best MW in the world not named Anderson Silva" It will be a tough win though, I cant see this going all 3 rounds for some reason. Im crazy I kno, Im picking Franklin to finish Hendo Right? but if it does go all 3 rounds, I give it 100% to Franklin. he will out box Hendo.

BTW, did anyone see the countdown on Sportsnet for this fight? Rich is a funny guy. I laughed so hard when Hendo said "Im gonna Kick the shit outta him" or summin along those lines.

and I agree with Lindland, if it wasn't for this fight I wouldnt be buying it either.
