  1. I think Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson is going to be a war.

  2. wow, i thought that they had rich versus chuck but franklin and hendo will be great. I think that hendo will be too agressive for franklin and will dominate him on the ground. I see shogun beating coleman this time. The last fight was a freak accident when shogun broke his arm.

  3. Well Coleman was about to have him o the groud and he does have good ground and pound but yeah it was a freak accident who knows who wuld have won if it didnt happen. Now I dont really think Coleman has much left in the tank. He is just pulling a Ken Shamrock. I really hope he loses this fight and retires he has done enough in this sport no need in leaving his legacy tarnished by getting viciously KO'd in his next couple of bouts.

  4. I didnt even notice the whole changing the name of cards thing until now and so this card is headlined by Franklin and Hendo? Kinda weak and Coleman will most likely get smashed so they better put another big name fighter on this card.

  5. Hell, yeah! I thought this rematch will never come around. Great pick by UFC's management!

  6. I don't like it Coleman is too old. He hasn't fought in 2 years and he looked like he was slowing back then. Hendo and Franklin is going to be a bad ass fight I can't wait for that battle.

  7. wow the hammer is about to strike again ..i what always liked him .. but.. i hope he doesnt turn out like Phil Barony and Shamrock ……get your ass kicked a few last times and go out on a losing streak.. although they arent retired yet but you know what i mean

  8. yeah, this should be good. I thought Coleman was a heavyweight though. I also don't think Franklin can take Hendo. He would have to keep it on the feet and try to use his reach. Otherwise, I think Hendo will take it. Either way, it'll be good.

  9. Hendo vs. Franklin is my kind of main event. I know both of those guys lost some cred recently but they both are at the top of the talent pool. I think Hendo will pull out a victory, he impressed me more in his last fight.

  10. im stooked to see my hometown fighter coleman fighting again. i hope he has the speed to keep up with shogun. it could go either way

  11. rua will win

  12. I loved the aftermath of the first fight. It was better than what happened in the ring.
