I am a huge Babalu fan and have wanted him to fight at MW for a very long time now.....however......Dan Henderson will most likely win this fight by TKO or Decision. I will be ecstatic if it goes Babalu's way and all, but I wouldn't pick this fight wearing my heart on my sleeve.

Im surprised this isnt at 205, Henderson has been adamant about the cut to 185 being too much for him at his age.

I got Babalu, last time they fought it was a close fight and dan getting the decision like always, but i beleive babalu has gotten better since then, and is in way better shape, i can see babalu using his wrestling and clinching also leg kicks to get the decision, basically just like he beat robbie, i can see it going this way, or how shields beat hendo, i can see it going that way.

Babalu has always been underrated and i think he can take this fight if he comes in with the right game plan.

Well i am on the fence about this one right now. Both are very skilled and tough. Both have a wrestling background, which leads me to believe it will be a striking match.

I like Hendo to end Babalu's night much like Jason Lambert did.

Dano does have dynamite in his right fist for sure

Babalu and Dan last 20 fights

I wanna see this fight
I think babulu is stupid enough to trade punches with him
Hendo will catch him and ko him

I think Babalu surprises people and beats Dan by staying on the outside and getting a few takedowns of his own.
