Jackson has a crazy chin Adventure Dan's best bet is the knock out Wandy style but that probably ain't happening and I think Jackson is too strong to lay and Pray .

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.


Lindland is a better greco roman wrestler than Dan is. Rampage held his own fighting from the clinch against Lindland. I think he'll be able to over power Dan in the clinch.

I think Rampage's beating of Chuck, and title win, will be too much of a high that he'll beat Dan.. It'll be a great fight, and might even go to decision, but Rampage will win..

Jackson is gonna stomp on Henderson. Henderson is not going to hold the LHW Championship ever. Not when Rampage has it.

I think it definitely lost some of its luster, especially with rumors that it may only be a three round match. In my opinion, I would rather the UFC sign Henderson for a few fights than have him put his Pride belt on the line. Think of the prospect of Henderson fighting Chuck, or Shogun, and now what...regardless of if he wins or loses we wont get to see these matches, or the liklihood goes waaaay down

In my honest opinion Hendo is a bit overrated i mean yeah he knocked out Vanderlei with a lucky punch.but i think Rampage,Liddell,Shogun,Ortiz,and maybe even Bisping can take him.I also believe people in the mw class like Silva,Filho,Franklin, and Linland can also beat him.

I'm going Hendo

Hendo has more expeirience fighting the big fights.
Hendo is a better fighter
Hendo has fought better fighters.
Hendo finally beat Silva, in thier long awaited rematch, from a earlier Silva decision victory. (Rampage lost twice, badly).
Hendo has had more success against great fighters. (Rings King of Kings)
Hendo has a greater variety of technique.
Hendo used to fight open weight.

Rampage will become a Hendo one day.
Not that far away, Maybe 2 or 3 years.

He'll lose the title and get it back
When it's his time.

Thats my pick

Thanks

I think this fight will go to a decision. I think some people might underestimate the strength of Dan Henderson. He is a very tough fighter that is still focused even when rocked. Jackson will not knock him out. Also, I do not think Dan will KO Rampage. It was Silva's knees that defeated Jackson in the end, and Silva's knees are more dangerous than Dan's right hand. I do not recall the last time Dan lost via KO (Did get submitted by both Noguiera's however). But I doubt this match will go submission victory.
I say decision, and the winner/champion will be.. Dan Henderson, although I would not be surprised if he is the "underdog." Jackson can land devestating knee strikes (just ask Randleman), and Jackson is usually much stronger than his opponents, but I gotta say that Dan isnt too far behind in strength.

I think it will be a unanimous decision for Henderson. He has knockout power and olympic caliber wrestling. That is quite the combination
