Dana White - "We've told Dan Henderson he's fighting the winner of this fight"
Is this going to be a repeat of Jones/Evans?

I'm sure Hendo will try to finish it more than Rashad.

there is always the "H" bomb. i think it will probably end up much like the jones/rampage fight though. i hate saying that because hendo is probably my favorite fighter, but i gotta call it like i see it.

I'd get excited for a Jones vs. Hendo fight. Plus a win over Hendo will really add to Jones' legacy. He's probably all for it.

I think Jones gets the submission win in the later rounds. Maybe the 4th.

Woohhh big fella, back up the bus....Andy is still running from Chael in the jungles of Brazil.....he doesn't have the lung capacity to run from Dangerous Dan & Jones as well, that means he would have to retire

Or he'll just work on his stand up again

If Hendo had landed that overhand right that Shad did, he could finish Jones. The problem is I don't see him being in any kind of position to land it in this fight.

i dont think so, rashad is much faster then hendo and rashad has shown he has alot of power, no way of proving who has more power both guys have one punch ko'd guys.

hendo is going to have alot more trouble than rashad. he is slower, older, his striking is predictable and it is proven he only throws power shots that jones will see coming a mile away.
as someone else said it is probably going to be simliar to the rampage fight but i think it will end sooner

one thing you can always count on is dan will come to fight. he will go after jones n either get finished doing or finish him. when have you ever seen a fight in which hendo was out of it.. outside of anderson this is the only match worth seeing unless jones moves to HW

I disagree. Evans throws good power, but people make a whole lot of the way he finished Chuck and Forrest. Hendo's overhand right and left hook have both consistently been KO punches, and he does pussyfoot around with trying to throw anything else besides them.

I think it is an easier fight for Jones than Rashad. He should dominate. But there is a little more chance of a KO. My guess is we don't see anyone challenge Jones until someone comes along who can outstrike him and avoid the takedown.

Jones sub 2 via the godly bows of doom opening up the ole' mercy choke.

If Hendo were to win this he would in my opinion have had the most impressive career of any fighter in mma history. He has become such a better fighter than back when he was Decision Dan Hollywood Henderson. He is a lock for the Hall of Fame regardless.
