ok.. absolutely no effence to be givien to the poster but
you have jackson's chin as better than hendo's
and jackson having more power in his hands
also has him as a better wrestler

that has to be a joke
hendo was an olympic wrestler (jackson is not close to that)
hendo isnt as good of a boxer jackson but coulnt ko wandy , but hendo did (almost did it when he was in their first fight).. and jackson ko a couple times by wandy .. but not hendo... not even close either time
those are three cataghories that you have miss read.

also.. improved striking;as shown in liddel fight?
no way
liddell hasnt been fighting that caliber of fighters these two have.. its doesnt suprise me at all that this happened..
chuck is a good fighter but he'll be better now that he lost... but his stand up is all defensive... with a terrible stance. of course jackson ko'd him.
and all that coupled with him knowing he was gonna loose his title.. c'mon.

jackson is not the caliber or wandy, shogun, alistar avereem, jackson, or even hendo in stand up.

i'm mean prejiduce... but c'mon if you've watched fighting long enough.. you know waht i'm saying.

if he fought lil nog, or arona... he'd be taken down and tapped in a heart beat....
with all this being said... i dont know why you'd base an opinion of jackson's standup on his fight wiht liddell..

Jackson did fight Arona and KO'ed him with a slam. MMA math does not work at all. Never has and never will. Liddell KO'ed Overeem, but what does that mean when he's fighting Randy? Nothing at all. Fights are about styles. It's about who matches up with who. Remember, Chuck beat Vitor who destroyed Wandy. Chuck beat Tito twice, while Tito beat Wandy, does that mean Chuck beats Wandy? Nope

I have Jackson winning this fight. I think he's to strong for Hendo. He's aggressive but won't come in wild like Wandy. Wandy choose to stand and bang with Hendo and we all know Hendo has dynomite in his hands.

Jackson should clinch and then use his strength to take Hendo down and just ground-n-pound to victory. I don't see Jackson wanting to stand and trade with Hendo.
