Leader of Brazilian Top Team, Murilo Bustamante commented to TATAME about Rousimar “Toquinho” Palhares’ preparation for the biggest challenge of his career at UFC 88 against the former Pride champion, Dan Henderson. “He’s ready, man, we bet on his. We know Henderson is a top athlete and that it’ll be a tough fight, bus we believe in Toquinho”, said Bustamante, that told us that Palhares isn’t felling any pressure about this fight. “He’s loving it, impossible to be more motivated. He knows he’ll have a great chance to grown in the division and, if he wins, he’ll make a huge advance close to his dream: a title shot. We want that”, revealed Bustamante.

I think im going with Palhares, he's going to play the spoiler for the night. Will suck for hendo if he gets 3 straight losses, but they were against top guys though. well 2

I hopr everyone bets on him and brings the odds down so when I lay the jack on Dan I get a good return.

Me too. Pick and wager. Just my feeling. I'll probably get scared and switch to Hendo just before the fight.

Well, I'm not taking Busta's word on it.

Of course, he'll pick his student. Murilo probably feels that he is better than Hendo, He didn't agree with the stoppage or decision IIRC.

I won't be surprised either way, but I gotta go with Hendo.

Edit: Loller beat me to it. Didn't see that before.

I want to pick Palhares with all of my MMA loving heart.

That being said Dan is down 0 and 2 in the UFC this time around. He will not only win this fight, he will probably dominate it.

When Hendo got submitted by Anderson Silva he had many things to worry about in that fight. Anderson can beat anybody in a number of ways. Dan got caught by arguably the best P4P fight right now.

Palhares has great BJJ but does not bring the rest of the offence like an Anderson Silva caliber fighter. With only one real offensive threat to beat Hendo with, Palhares will be too one dimensional to catch Dan in a Submission.
