i think that hollywood henderson is going to lose. but he is better fit for the middleweigh divison. i would like to see henderson vs franklin that would be a good match. silva will stay on stop of the middleweight divison.

As much as i love him at both weights his added depth to the MW division is a good thing but win or lose who will he fight after Silva?

Either way, his next fight will be Franklin (IMO) to set up a Silva-Franklin 3 or Silva-Hendo 2 "Redemption" fight card.

if hendo beats silva, it seems almost pointless for him to stay at mw for very long. silva is so far beyond anyone in the mw division if hendo beats him(which i think will happen), the only worthwhile fight would be an immediate rematch. ultimately i see dan at lhw again in the future after 2 or 3 fights at mw.

that suprises me since he had to be talked into droping down.



It's a little surprising, but Dan's at that weird weight where he's a small LH and has to cut alot for MW... Kinda like Mayhem is inbetween welter and middle...

I like how MMA has less divisions than boxing and wouldn't want that to change, but it's too bad for some of these guys that don't fall into the weight seperations well



I think a 195 class would be bad ass!

if hendo loses he should get some time to recover/weight issues if he has any. have a top tier opponent like previously mentioned, hell most likely run thru, then silva rematch. if he loses, what does silva do? hed be the most dominant mw period.

If he stays at MW he's an automatic contender right away since the division has limited talent IMO. He's really the only guy I can see beating Anderson anyway besides Rampage. Either way, he's top 5 in either division.

He would easily destroy Franklin, Marquardt, Okami, and Bisping. At LHW he already beat Wandy, IMO he can beat Machida, Liddell, and Rashad. He's an instant top 5 in either division, but the only problem is he would have lost two both champs so the casual UFC fans will look down on him in the future.

Hendo is one of the best fighters in the world. I just don't know who he pissed off. Rampage and now Anderson? I know he was champs at both weights but I would want to make my name in the UFC first.

hendo is very established already man, hes a team quest original which holds some weight, and he was a champ in 2 weight classes in pride, he needs no cans. not to mention he beat allen goes and carlos newton in the ufc and thats nothing to scoff at.

well he had to get rid of his PRIDE belts first. dana wants to unify as many belts as possible so he is making hendo put both of his on the line before he can continue on in the UFC. hendo has a great chance of beating silva and i agree that he is probably the only one who can beat him atm at MW. he is a great fighter, definitely top 3 at MW even with a loss. i currently have him at #2 in MW and #3 at LHW because i don't know which one he will stay at. i know he has said he is most likely going to stay at MW but i take what he says with a grain of salt atm.

i am really looking forward to this fight and i hope that if he does in fact lose this fight that the UFC doesn't miss a beat and gives him another talented fighter because it wouldn't be good for his image if the gave him a can right afterward. i say that if hendo loses, (assuming he stays at MW) give him okami so that he can end his title aspirations, then maybe set him up with franklin or marquardt because both of those guys have recognition. all i know is that if anderson loses i feel bad for rich franklin because they would probably rematch unless silva doesn't want to see franklin get destroyed again.

It's funny, because Hendo could lose this fight and still be my #5 P4P if it's as competitive as Rampage/Hendo. I would favor Hendo against almost anyone in the LHW divison, and I favor Hendo against everyone in the MW divison including Anderson. But if he loses...

1. I'd like to see him stay at MW where he can't be outsized by some of the huge LHWs like Forrest or Tito(although I'd still give Hendo the edge there).
2. There are some good matches for Hendo. Franklin/Hendo wouldn't really make a whole lot of sense in the immediate title picture, but that's a fight that hasn't happened that needs to before they retire. I'd love to see Hendo beat the living tar out of some of the second-tier fighters at MW. Grove/Hendo makes me giggle uncontrollably.
3. Hendo is getting up there in age. He's 37, and has fought a ton of fights. In his favor, his old team quest buddy Couture is still fighting in his mid-forties. They both come from similar backgrounds, and that may have something to do with longevity. But again, Hendo has fought quite a few more fights than Couture and they could start to take their toll.
4. If Hendo goes back up to LHW, I'd love to see Chuck vs. Hendo. This is another fight that needs to happen before they both retire, if for nothing except history's sake.

I'm piss drunk right now, but somebody please remind me to bet on Hendo against Silva before the next card... Reading all of this shit in my drunken state has caused me to realize Hendo quite possibly could be unstoppable at MW.

Oh, and somebody said something about Hendo being the only one that can challenge Silva at MW... I disagree cuz of Matt Lindland, but whatever.. he aint and wont be in the UFC any time soon. Damn my typing is good for being piss drunk- goodnight!

if he loses which i think he will. I think he should still stay at middleweight because in reality quinton rampage jackon is too big for him. His frame is best suited for middleweight for sure.
