Hendo's head is made out of pure granite but if you take into account that the two of the best strikers he ever fought almost knocked him out, feijao and anderson, then i think shogun winning by strikes isnt so far fetched especially given his skillset and power and even on a guy like hendo

at the same time hendo has the power to stop anyone as well, but if youre looking at technical striking abilities, footwork, jabs, leg kicks, killer instinct, and jiu jitsu Shogun has a clear edge in a few key areas of this fight, where as hendo has the wrestling, maybe a slight power advantage and not much else

Honestly i also agree that Shogun will be the first to stop hendo, but not a ko, a tko after getting rocked by punches




Hendo has faced better strikers than Feijao in his career, and Hendo has good Jiu Jitsu defense as well

I like them both, but am a Hendo fan first. Hendo's KO of Bisping is one of my favorite knock outs of all time. Shogun is a slight favorite at this time, but Hendo has faced a ton of legends in their prime before, many of them great strikers, and he has won many of those matchups. Some of the best he has fought include Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, Rampage, Fedor, Wanderlei Silva, Nogueira, Shields, Franklin, etc. and none of them were able to KO Hendo. Hendo's losses are 5 decisions and 3 submissions. If Shogun is going to win, he will have to win by KO/TKO. Hendo can win either by decision or KO/TKO. I dont see either winning by submission.

Nice I really like this fight, but I can't see any outcome other than a Henderson tko

This is going to be the most wild sick nasty fight ever! Should have been on fox, the whole world would be talking about this fight after it happened. Way to waste it on a PPV with a co main event of Belfort vs Le, just can't see it selling that much PPV.

I am hoping it becomes more like Pride 33. Hendo rolling in at 13%!

One of my favorite fights of all time. Wanderlei has to be thinking that this isn't good for Shogun.

Hendo by left hook!

Shogun has this I think. Rd one might be a stretch but I don't see Hendo dropping a bomb on Shogun

Great fight, and a necessary one I feel to save UFC 139 from being a lackluster card.

Hendo has had some recent success, but I do feel he is still on the decline. I expect Shogun to absolutely obliterate him within the first two minutes.

I still can't get his loss to Jake Shields out of my head, and he had some scary spots against Rafael and Fedor, and neither is on the level of Shogun. Dan has always struggled to defend low kicks, a bad recipe against Rua.

Outside of the Jone's battering, Shogun has looked like the Rua of ol.

I'm taking Shogun as well, I'm a huge Hendo fan (obviously) but i think he's going to be out pointed by Shogun for sure... Dan usually comes in with a hunched, right hand loaded stance and i think he will be prone to kicks, and those are Shoguns strong points.

I'm taking Shogun via TKO being the first to stop Hendo via strikes.

This is awesome. Fall and Winter always seem to be the most exciting time of year for me. As if Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas are not enough. Now we have back to back ufc events... I do not know how much more of this I can take.

Feijoa and Fedor both dropped him, but he recovered quickly, and had the presence of mind (and the skill) to use his wrestling to gain top position on both when they came in to throw extra punches.

It depends on what you mean by hurt. If it's anything close to rocked and the infamous danger zone that demands stoppages, yeah, Hendo was rocked.

What fight and when, was there a danger zone that demanded a stoppage?

Im talking about Henderson's recent fights, not every fight that ever got stopped.

If you're asking when was Hendo in a spot that could be interpreted as dangerous, and therefore possibly have the ref jump in. It's actually quite often. Wanderlei had him in La La Land, Rampage had a few moments near the end of the fight, Cavalcante had him loopy, Fedor dropped him, and Anderson had him on blind autopilot until he gave up.

It's just that he endures it normally. But yes, Hendo has absolutely been rocked and in danger. Shogun provides a super tough match-up for him, and he's a finisher.
