    Hendo is in Strikeforce


    He has officially signed, per AOL. A Hendo v. Mousasi fight could be very interesting.

    Rumor is Hendo v. Shields in March or April. Thats a bad fight for Jake

    Hendo's only problem is his marketability. He's a DAMN good fighter, amongst the best ever, but he has had some consistency problems at times. His wrestling is still at the top of the game, his chin is still solid, and he can finish anyone with his right hand. Honestly, and this is not something I'd like to see, but I could see him being thrown at Fedor if he beats Mousasi. It won't be the first time he's fought at HW (he did in RINGS years ago and has fought Rod Nog x2) and it would bring together two of the bigger names in MMA for CBS/Strikeforce.

    He actually talks about fighting Fedor as a distinct possibility. My thought is he is going to take as many big fights as SF throws at him. I do think he could beat Mousasi

    It's pretty amazing that UFC would have him coach a season of Ultimate Fighter, put him in a big match on their biggest show of all time, and somehow never have locked him into a new contract before all that.

    he was asking for big money and was 3-2 with his wins not being great besdies bisping. he is a great fighter but is old and has only 4-5 fights left. he doesnt attract huge crowds. I am sad by this tho.

    His fight with Rampage was one of the better fights in a long time and he's one of the bigger names in MMA. Age is not a factor with him as he is not a brawler and he knows how to slow down a fight and win.

    Horrible mistake on Dana's part especially since he is the biggest contender to Andy.

    that fight was pretty good and he took a round from anderson but he should have settled for less money. is he really going to make more in strikeforce? i really wanted to see him fight nate mar or anderson again.

    Hendo will destroy Shields, as he is better at everything Jake is good at. Mousassi is a possibility as well, though it depends entirely on how quick and strategic Gegard places his strikes. The question remains, however: does Gegard have enough power to put Hendo down with strikes?

    it would take a ton of punches against the cage or something. maybe a knee then a bunch. HENDO WOULD OWNNNNNN Jake shields no doubt. I would like to see hendo be 185 champ and be cung lee

    he was asking for more than 300,000.

    Also I love Dan Hendo I think he will WRECK shields but at this point in his career he would lose to Nate Mar or vitor belfort for sure in my mind. I hope he wins and stays strikeforce 185 champ till he retires.

    He beat Vitor back in '06 in PRIDE.

    Hendo's wrestling is miles ahead of Shields. There's no way that he has the gas to constantly threaten Hendo with a TD.

    UFC ****ed up on this one. Definite gain for Strikeforce. Hendo shoulda been getting his rematch with AS. It will be nice to see some of the potential matchups in SF though.

    no. hendo is way to good for lawler. mousassi is going to be the only guy who will beat him but he wants to stay at 205. he needs to be heavy look at who is training partner is lol fedor. dude do you remember hendo got 2 back to back title fights and lost both? i think he needed one more win. vitor and silva would be more fun to watch. i think hendo should have just fought someone else. I think hendo is afraid of nate mar myself. that would kiss his title shot goodbye. it sucks UFC lost hendo but i think he barley beat rich and beat another guy who isnt a real big name YET. so he only had one solid win which could have been enough but he really needed one more win or no vitor in the picture

    Hendo is one of the few fighters I would say that is not afraid to fight anyone. He's fought the most elite of all time and held his own and then some. Wanderlei Silva still says that Hendo was his hardest fight. He'll fight at any weight above 185 and is a mean, nasty fighter. I love his style and he is still one of the best MMAist ever.

    I really doubt that someone that has fought:
    Wand 2x
    Rod Nog 2x
    Rog Nog
    Andy
    Rampage
    Busta 2x
    Franklin
    Vitor
    Babalu
    Arona

    is afraid to fight Nate. I'm not saying that Nate is not a great fighter, but he's never beaten an elite, well-rounded fighter.

    I'd like to see a Gegard/Hendo. Gegard's name is becoming more and more ubiquitous. He's like the (early) Phil Heath of the 205's.
