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




Hendo has faced better strikers than Feijao in his career, and Hendo has good Jiu Jitsu defense as well

I like them both, but am a Hendo fan first. Hendo's KO of Bisping is one of my favorite knock outs of all time. Shogun is a slight favorite at this time, but Hendo has faced a ton of legends in their prime before, many of them great strikers, and he has won many of those matchups. Some of the best he has fought include Anderson Silva, Vitor Belfort, Rampage, Fedor, Wanderlei Silva, Nogueira, Shields, Franklin, etc. and none of them were able to KO Hendo. Hendo's losses are 5 decisions and 3 submissions. If Shogun is going to win, he will have to win by KO/TKO. Hendo can win either by decision or KO/TKO. I dont see either winning by submission.

This is going to be the most wild sick nasty fight ever! Should have been on fox, the whole world would be talking about this fight after it happened. Way to waste it on a PPV with a co main event of Belfort vs Le, just can't see it selling that much PPV.

I am hoping it becomes more like Pride 33. Hendo rolling in at 13%!

One of my favorite fights of all time. Wanderlei has to be thinking that this isn't good for Shogun.

Hendo by left hook!
