silva gonna mess henderson up big time
i dont think its right that henderson can go title shot to title shot. he could at least beat some scrub frist, at least get a win in the octagon
The fight with Hendo should be a good indicator of how Silva will do against Linland. I think Hendo is the better fighter and definitely has the better chin. Finishing Hendo will be a chore. I wonder how 25 minutes will play out for Anderson.
Fitch/Gono will be the best fight on this card.
I like Hendo in this one. He's an amazing wrestler and at 185, he wont be as outsized as he has been previoulsy. We all know that one right hand and Silva goes to sleep, plus I see hendo on top if the fight goes to the ground. Dont get me wrong though, Silva's last few fights and complete domination of Rich was impressive as hell and I'd say he'll be the favorite with most people. I just think Dan could win this fight in several different ways and as noted above, his chin in great too.
Hendo can beat anyone but Anderson. Silva will be on top for a very long time.
See unibrow Tavares in the background. That one dude sounds annoying as hell. Anyways, it's just sparring, but with a guy that hits pretty hard, especially against a MW. It's an indicator of what type of chin Anderson has. Anderson has a better chance of KOing Dan, than the opposite, but Dan might control him on the ground for the W.
WTF is with the dude yelling nonsense? Anyway, damn Anderson was doing his little head dance and making Nog (who doesn't hit THAT hard) look bad at the beginnning.
I know, I don't care if it was Junior Silva doing that annoying bantering, I would tell him to STFU. Yeah, Nog doesn't hit very hard, especially for a HW. He has stunned some guys with decent chins though, and I don't think he could hurt Anderson unless he was dead tired. I'm not saying that vid proved a damn thing, just a little tidbit.
Only 2 weeks out, what do you guys think of some of these fights?
Anderson Silva vs Dan Henderson
Cheick Kongo vs Heath Herring
Jon Fitch vs Chris Wilson
Yushin Okami vs Evan Tanner
Chris Leben vs Alessio Sakara
Andrei Arlovski vs Jake O'brien
Josh Koscheck vs Dustin Hazelett
Diego Sanchez vs David Bielkheden
Luke Cummo vs Luigi Fioravanti
Jorge Gurgel vs John Halverson
Cummo vs Fioravanti has major potential. Both guys have agressive standup. Remember when Cummo KO'd Josh "The Human Thai Pad" Haynes That was impressive considering Bisping couldn't KO Haynes, even though he was carrying an extra 35+lbs.
I'd like to see how Hazelett fares vs Kos. Hazelett is slick as hell on the ground and won't mind being on his back. I hope he catches Koscheck with a gogoplata from guard--I'm not joking.
Anything could happen in the main event. It may be one of the most competitive championship fight we've seen. Hendo could pose major problems for Anderson, but I hope Anderson pulls it out. Regardless, I think we'll see an absolute war. Anderson is so aggressive from his back that I think he'll prevent the dreaded LNP. Anderson does have crazy speed and versatility in his combos, so he could be the first man to stop Hendo with strikes. I can't wait.
I have thoughts on the rest of the fights too, but I'm too lazy to type it all out. Overall, I like the card. All matchups are interesting. Tanner vs. Okami may be as close as we'll ever see to one man fighting himself. I think Kongo takes out Herring. Sakara and Leben should be fun. Which Arlovski will show up? I don't think I have really seen AA vs. a wrestler. Does he KTFO Irish Jake, or will he be dry humped right out of the UFC.
I'll go out on a limb and pick silva for the win.
Halverson is a friend of mine... but I just don't think he belongs in the UFC.
O'brien sucks. He looked bad against Heath, but Heath looked 10 x worse to make it not so noticeable. AA should KO him by uppercut. If not, AA blows and needs to see GSP's sports shrink about his preception of his weak chin.
Excited about Okami-Tanner. I'll take Okami for being fresher, but hoprfully he won't for 2 rounds.
Hendo-Silva? No idea. There's really no one to compare to Silva that Hendo's fought. I'll make a choice later and then flip on my boy at the last minute
