Since Hendo is gonna fight Rampage what will his wieght be??? when he faught Wandy his wieght was 195, but since he fight's at 185 i see why but will he go to 205 or just come in a little light???

P.S. if rampage wins he'll hold both belts but wat happens to the 185 belt???
will it be up for grabs???

What's with all the question marks???


According to Sherdog, Henderson is 6'1" (the same height as Rampage, incidentally). My guess is he'll be a little over 205, but not a ton, maybe 210-215. I know some guys cut a ton of weight (as Hendo probably does to get to 185), but I doubt he'd fight at much over 215.

As for the Pride belts, that's still up in the air. My guess is that they're kaput. Henderson says he's at 205 to stay, but if he loses to Rampage, it could be interesting to see whether he changes his mind and goes after the 185-lb belt. I bet cutting that much weight really sucks, though.

I'd say he'll weigh around 202-203 pounds and that's without cutting. He's really not a big dude. He's not even a huge 185er.

Dan is pretty much a natural 185er, he walks around between 190 and 203 pounds or so and I would expect him to come in at about that. He could bulk up some against a guy as big as Quinton but I don't see him doing it, he's used to being the smaller guy in big fights like this.

The LHW weight cap is 206 so i dont see how that would be possible.

I'm fairly certain you only have to weigh the correct amount _at the weigh-in_ meaning if you're naturally 215 pounds you could conceivably cut 10 pounds of mostly water-weight then regain that weight overnight making you heavier for the actual fight.

I'm sure his weight is the last thing on his mind (it should also be the last thing on everyone elses mind). As for his middleweight belt, well I think if he loses (although I don't think he will) he will defend, or unify, it. Hard to say since Pride seems like a thing of the past.

Winner gets both 205 belts, and I think the other belt will be vacated, or Hendo will keep it if he loses. Either way, Rampage is walking out of that cage with alot more bling.

Im pretty sure Hendo will weigh in at 205, he walks around at that weight.

Buddy of mine trains there ,says Hendo will be a slightly buffer 200 at weigh ins.

i dont see him weighing more than 205, he is not a huge guy and he has never bulked up for a fight, he has a lot of skill and needs not alot of muscle.

im sure "if" he loses then he will lose his MW (205 for pride) belt but keep his WW (185 for pride) belt

great fight cant wait
