In all honesty Henderson could EASILY win this by decision by just wrestling. This is five rounds right?

I think Hendo will fade like in the Rampage fight though and I think he will take a quick lead and rock Shogun several times, and Shogun back I just don't think henderson will try to make boring and that will be his mistake when Shogun stops him late in one of the wildest fights in MMA HISTORY.

The big thing for me is that Fedor couldn't finish Henderson off and he's got bombs when he throws punches. The guy's been beating on heavyweights with them for like a decade. If he couldn't take Hendo out than neither will Shogun. Not only that but IF ( and that's a big if) Henderson decides to go for the clinch/takedown he should be able to get it considering his greco background and just general strength in the clinch. And considering his big right hand the odds really seem to be stacked against Shogun.

If Shogun can pull off the win it will be by a decision I think or maybe a leg lock submission. If Henderson wins (more likely in my eyes) it will be by a finish with punches probably followed up by ground and pound.

On a side note, is this a five round fight?

I won't make an official prediction yet, but I do think if Shogun shows up at 100% or close to it that he can beat Hendo. If the Nogueiras and Anderson can submit Hendo I think Shogun stands a pretty good chance of doing the same as long as his conditioning's where it needs to be.

shogun's style of striking is significantly different than fedor's. i see shogun controlling this on the feet and winning via ud. dans hard to knock but not hard to hit. i also think he's gonna have a harder time than most people think taking shogun down.
