Dan Henderson lost to Anderson Silva via Rear Naked Choke Submission at UFC 82 on March 1.
rich vs Hendo..win battles silva
/ I totally agree. I liked Dan until I heard him make all kinds of excuses and he's still making them. He needs to fight Rich before he deserves to get back in there with Silva. That would be an awesome fight to see and I hope that Rich would beat Dan's ass cause Rich is a classy guy who doesn't make excuses.
i still think Dan is the most qualified to beat silva. i think given a secodn shot and sticking to the same game plan he did in round 1 that he can and will beat anderson
I love how he said he should have stuck with the same game plan in r2 that he did in r1. Silva was better prepared in that round and he rocked him then submitted him. I think Dan is a badass but he needs to drop the excuses. Seriously!
Franklin will move to 205 – Although I would like to see Franklin vs Henderson I don't think It will happen…
Franklin can't sit as No.2 in the middlewight division and beat all the next contenders – Then fight Silva again – Rich got battered by Silva twice and practically no one wants to see that again…
Bottom line is Franklin would likely beat the following fighters and in the process stop their title shot;
The Rich v Dan H fight is a tuff call – Personally I beleive Henderson is a better fighter (but he wouldn't walk through Rich)
(Providing Bisping beats Leben)
1. Hendo vs Marquadt = Hendo
2. Bisping vs Okami = Bisping
Hendo vs Bisping for a title shot
Franklin moves up to LHW and fights Jardine/Bonner/Griffin/Tito etc
he did come in the same game plan but silva go see his plan and knock him and sub him
DanP thats a good idea but it would take a rediculously long amount of time to have all those matches for 1 contwender spot plus if the all figh eachother it gets rid of the few other contenders there are for the title.
okami should be the next in line, then bisping after a couple more fights and henderson should get his second chance. rich got a second chance after he lost his title and henderson should to after losing his pride title to anderson
i agree with dane. okami will probably be fighting anderson next. they will hype it up by saying that he beat anderson once even though it was by disqualification. i really think they are going to set up hendo vs. franklin. that would be a great fight and bring in a ton of cash.
if hendo doesn't fight franklin then i think the ufc will want him to get that rematch pretty quick like rich did. as far as i'm concerned anderson didn't get that pride belt from hendo…he retired with it when pride went under.
4 − = three
