I didn't see it confirmed but I'm assuming this is set for 5 rounds too... Jesus. Great fight. Lets go Gun.

Saw this posted in Sherdog and came over here. Awesome news for any Hendo fan, this is the fight I have wanted to see for a long time now, since Pride.

It's impossible to pick one of these guys to root for. Love 'em both.

WOW!







But what is the point in Strikeforce now!?



There isn't one. It's done. Melendez, Barnett and Cormier are the last pieces before it crumbles. They're waiting to show Barnett vs. Cormier, because let's face it, that's a fantastic fight.

EDIT: They're going to scoop up a lot of serious talent when it crumbles, but those 3 guys are the key pieces in Strikeforce right now. Maybe throw King Mo in there as well.

Shogun is going to be the first to stop Hendo by strikes.

In a straight Shogun v. Hendo bet, anyday. Hendo's going to eat leg kicks all day and miss with the overhand.

Tough fight to call I don't ever pick against either of these guys. I think it's a better match-up for Henderson but he might not ever catch Shogun.

Hendo's head is made out of pure granite but if you take into account that the two of the best strikers he ever fought almost knocked him out, feijao and anderson, then i think shogun winning by strikes isnt so far fetched especially given his skillset and power and even on a guy like hendo

at the same time hendo has the power to stop anyone as well, but if youre looking at technical striking abilities, footwork, jabs, leg kicks, killer instinct, and jiu jitsu Shogun has a clear edge in a few key areas of this fight, where as hendo has the wrestling, maybe a slight power advantage and not much else

Honestly i also agree that Shogun will be the first to stop hendo, but not a ko, a tko after getting rocked by punches
