Hard to say both guys are amazing. But I say Quinton has the advantage currently. I think he can out strike Dan on the feet and use his physical advantage and striking to control the match, most likely for a UD, though I won't rule out a TKO. However if He slips up and gives Dan an opening to nail him and set up a shot or screws up in close and Dan clinches, he could quickly end getting slammed to the mat and pounded to mush. This will no doubt be a great fight, and a final test to see if Rampage's killer instinct and mental focus are truly where they need to be.

And as for the comparison of Hendo and Lindland's Wrestling skills, The law may be the man on the mats but Dan has the best MMA adapted wrestling in the fight game. You can't even argue that.

I Saw my first of Hendo tonight Pound for pound he is a stud but i think Rampage is bigger and that boy has one big head, If Chuck couldent drop him in there Pride fight i do not think Hendo can.

Its hard to say i don't see it going past the first round really....

Im going to go with henderson just because of the experience he has an i also think he is a better more well-rounded fighter

Not saying Jackson isn't in like the top five 205lb but i think henderson is more well rounded

This fight will probably be an all out war. I can't stand when people say different styles make the best fights. Different styles make quick or boring fights. These 2 have the same style so I expect a 5 round battle that give Rampage the split decision. I see stand up, them brawling and Rampage having the upperhand in the clinch throwing uppercuts and I see him slamming down henderson. Henderson has a huge Right hand though so Rampage should watch out. Rampage lost to Shogun & Wanderlie because of there knees. Dan Henderson don't throw vicious knees so I don't see Dan having any advantage over Rampage...

jackson is to big and to strong for henderson. and has a better chin than wanderlei. and his natural strength will be way to much for henderson to overcome. after this dan better go down in weight. anderson vs dan how's that for a fight.



Hendo will crush Silva bad.

I'm going to have to go with Jackson on this one because he is the bigger and stronger out of the two. I think with his new boxing trainers he will be able to compete with Dan's striking and outwrestle him from the clinch.



Out wrestle him in the clich? Are you crazy? Hendo is a two-time Olympian in GRECO-ROMAN wrestling! Rampage would even tell you Hendo is better in the clinch.

I am split on this one. We know what we are getting from Hendo, but what are we getting from Rampage is uncertain. If he comes in fully prepared and in shape for 5 rounds, even if it is only a 3round fight, he has a 40% to 50% chance of winning. If he comes into the fight prepared half-a#$ed, then his chances go down to say 20%. But we won't know until the fight happens.

Stand up: Rampage
Clinch/Dirty boxing: Hendo
Takedowns: Hendo
Wrestling: Hendo
Ground: Hendo
GnP: Even
Strength: Rampage
KO Power: Even
Cardio: Hendo

I could really see this fight going either way, they both have strong chins, and where henderson may be the more technical wrestler, rampage is ridiculously strong. I see either an early KO or a long drawn out war that ends with Rampage ground and pounding his way to victory. Im gonna have to say Rampage.

this will be the one of the best fights the ufc has ever seen (even though to me it seems like pride fighters in a cage). the stregths and weaknesses of these two fighters match up really well, and no telling what could happen if they locked up with some wrestling/grappling.

page is freaky strong, but hendo has plenty of skill. look for henderson to up his boxing in order to get inside and shoot on page.

i cant wait for this bout. just wish it was in a ring......

in japan.....

If it is true that the belt(s) are not on the line than the fight doesn't excite me as much, it still is an awesome fight, but it lost some gumption for me if the belts are not on the line...

I agree. it's almost like UFC was trying too hard too fast. This may have worked if it was up for the belt say for a December unified match but they probably jumped the gun at first scheduling it and then realized this would throw too much commotion between PrideFC & UFC after they closed their wallets for a second.
