This is a match I have personally been waiting for and advocating for years. Believe me, I am excited that it is finally here. If you leave Henderson’s teammate Matt “The Law” Lindland out of the equation (and sadly the UFC seems to have done just that, which to me is the sport’s loss), Anderson Silva versus Dan Henderson is the greatest middleweight fight that MMA has to offer or could produce at this moment in time. Expectation-wise this ranks up there with the first match of Fedor Emelianenko and Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira (Pride 25) or the second clash between Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes (UFC 65)....



LOL @ the "Raging Bull" reference later in the article

Good write up by Quadros. He seems to be along the same lines as myself and what seems like few others when he says Dan actually has the advantage in the clinch.

It's going to be an epic battle, no doubt. I still think Hendo will come out on top, though.

That didn't really help me at all. It just told me all the things I already know. He didn't even pick a winner.

He has to save his picks for the event for the UFC 82 roundtable

Analysts need to step up and make concrete picks.

"WHOEVER IMPOSES THEIR WILL WIN."

That shit's for hacks like John Madden. For the record, Hendo smashes him. TKO4 at the latest.

Great write up even though he works for the competition he can shoot it straight and acknowledge how awesome it is that the UFC put this together.

Hopefully Kenny Rice and Ron Kruck can see what real MMA coverage is and stop the relentless UFC bashing, I hate their beedy little eyes and general stupidity, "Hey this is Kenny Kruck I know you have no clue who I am, but I know what I am talking about because I say Dana White is an ass, back to you"
