Paulo is gonna be the biggest threat. I doubt Pride will want to give him the shot htough with his lay and pray tactics. Pride will most likely give it to misaki He did win the tournament.

i saw the Hendo/Silva fight already like 5 times and Hendo looked better than ever!

his stand-up and aggressiveness at something else..do you all think he will be beat by any of the top choices?

i still stick to Hendo Retiring with the belt..(if he retires before 4-6 more fights.....but i doubt he will,he still looks great for his age)



anyways...so what is the deal?? is he gonna stay with both belts,or will he have to Vacate a belt?

I went with Kang (if he is injury free). Filho would be good but even if he gets Hendo to the ground can he submit him? Remember when Dan fought Nog and the sub attempts he escaped from then. And that was against a much heavier opponent.

well i believe fighters dont retire until they are beaten for the most part. and dan will be no exception. he is the best in the world at this weight his clinch is as good as anyones his power better his wrestling is top of the food chain. he is a favorite against anyone at 183, 185.
the best fight will be him defending the 205 to shogun. wow cant wait
props to pride

I changed my mind after he just wupped Wandy.I don't think Filho will be able to pull out the LnP anymore. I think he will lose the 205 lb. belt with in 2 defenses, but will hold on to the 183 lb. belt for a while

And Koed him, unbelivable. I could have seen him winning, buy not by KO

i predicted him winning by TKO 4th round, but GnP like he had Silva in the first 2 rounds,but not standing toe to toe!!(it is marked in my profile as picking Hendo to win via Unanimous Decision,but i changed my mind 2 hours before the event started....as i predicted in the "Your Pride33 picks and results" thread i made)

Hendo confirmed to be out at till possibly 8/24 , so this could take a bit no matter who it is.

Id say Kang would give him the most trouble. I think Hendo could counter Paulo's takedowns and KO him on the feet. With Kang he is more of a complete fighter.
