The fight resumes of Fedor Emelianenko and Dan Henderson are chock full of memorable battles over more than a decade. They fought a range of opponents of all sizes and abilities in all corners of the world. Though they have never been on the same track long enough to face each other, the headliners of the Strikeforce/M-1 Global event on Saturday at the Sears Centre in Hoffman Estates, Ill., forged their reputations, in large part, against a common foe.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira spent about 75 minutes of his life locked in combat with Emelianenko and Henderson, a bruising and strenuous slate that laid bare the trio’s grit and gifts.

“I know those guys very well,” Nogueira said during a recent appearance on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Rewind” program. “I’ll tell you, [they are] very similar. Both guys ... they have a very good right hand. They’re both very good Greco-[Roman wrestling] guys, so they throw the right hand and get close, shorten the distance. It’s kind of the same, the way they attack the person in the fight.”

Are Lindland and Hendo still suing each other? Because I would think Lindland would have some tricks for Hendo having fought Fedor himself.

Hendo had trouble with the stronger Rampage and if Fedor doesn't get too wild and get caught with a right I see him beating Hendo the same way Rampage beat him.

Lindland's fight with Fedor was over before he learned any tricks

Great article. Who better to make a prediction for this fight than Big Nog? After reading, I definitely feel more comfortable with my pick of Fedor UD.... Hendo can always make it happen though!

If Fedor hurts him on the feet, i think its far more likely the finish comes via sub.

His submissions prowess is capable of finishing off Henderson and his submission defense. I think both are better than good at what they do.
