Thomas Gerbasi, UFC - After a historic 2007, UFC President Dana White is not resting on his company’s laurels in 2008, as he announced at Saturday’s UFC 78 post-fight press conference in Newark, New Jersey that former two-division PRIDE Champion Dan Henderson will drop from 205 pounds to 185 to tackle UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva, considered by many to be the best pound for pound fighter in the sport. White said this anticipated super fight will take place in March. Stay tuned to UFC.com for more details in the coming weeks.

We finally got what we wished for. I am so pumped for this fight! Who you guys taking in this one?

I think Henderson will be able to get past Silva's strikes and put him on the ground and control the fight from there. If he could handle Rampage like that why not Silva? I give this one to Henderson in a 2nd round TKO

I think that Silva will manage a KO !! because of the 5 rd fight !!

even if hendo can take him down in the first and second rd, i think he will get KO eventually !!

i also think that he will have difficulty to recover to the weight in at 185 pds.

it will be a great fight for sure !!

Silva by KO in the 3th RD. !!

I think it's decision no matter who wins. Pickem for me, the hardest fight I can think of to pick.

I have to agree that Silva will win. He will eventually knock him out unless Henderson can get him down and GnP, and thats without him being able to get a slick sub on him from bottom position. I do think that it will be a very close fight and should be up there for fight of the night.

hendo may not be a more skilled striker but he has more power and a better ground game (maybe not better bjj but a better ground game in general imo), that will be the difference in the fight. hendo will either put him away late or win a decision.

im picking henderson for sure.
they both rank high on my P4P list but henderson should negate anderson's clinch with his strong wrestling.

there's no way hendo's getting knocked out thats for darn sure.
im agreeing with hippy saying it goes to decision, and the decision will be to hollywood henderson

IMO, this is the best fight that the UFC will have in 2008. Awesome, awesome, matchup.

I don't care who wins. Both of these guys are studs. I just hope it goes a few rounds before it's over. Respect to Henderson for dropping to '85 and taking on,quite possibly, the best fighter in the world right now.

This was really the only match that made sense for Anderson Silva unless they signed some other top level middleweight. I think this will be an outstanding fight. Silva is going to actually have a challenge for a change. I see it being an all out war. I give it to Henderson though.

I love both fighters, but I am going to have to choose Hendo for sure. I think he will take this by split decision.

About time, I wanted to see this fight for age's.
I kept on saying that Henderson would be the one to beat Silva, But now it's all go I think Silva will win, By KO.

With the agression the A.Silva fight's with I cant see this going for 25 minute's, I know he did a good job against Rampage, But he is not A.Silva!

I really like both fighter's here so I will sit back and enjoy this one!

Going out on a limb but I would think Rampage hits harder then anderson, and would also guess he's stronger/much bigger. Hendo has a great chin(ask page's hand) and dynamite in his hands(ask Silva's chin). I still don't know who to give this to, but I do know Hendo isn't Rich, Leben, Quarry, or Lutter. If anderson wins this he will be my #1 p4p without a doubt.
