    Thumbs up UFC 139 Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs Dan "Hendo" Henderson PICKS


    Just wanted to make a post to see who everyone has winning this fight.

    I got Shogun winning by 2nd round TKO.

    I might be a little biased though, seeing how Hendo beat Fedor, and I secretly wish for revenge.


    Sorry guys. Would have posted a really sweet UFC promo, but I can't get elaborate like that until I hit 50 posts.


    PEACE!!

    I love Shogun, but I highly doubt he'll be the first person to finish Hendo via strikes. This is going to be a 5 round fight, so it would be a good move for Shogun to pace himself and not come out swinging for the fences. He looked great against Forrest, but, at this point, Forrest's heart isn't into it. Hendo has the edge in wrestling and KO power, but Shogun has the more versatile striking and better overall grappling.

    I'm hoping for a FOTY war and it's too close for me to call.

    It'll be 3rds since it's not for a title, so i think it'll be a lot faster paced.

    You're right though. I didn't notice Hendo's yet to be finished by strikes. Good point!

    It just started at UFC 138 (Munoz/Leben), so it's still really new.
