I am going to to with Silva on this one. Now I agree with Omegas ideas on upswing and how henderson is on a roll, but Silva is fighting for much more. He doesn't want to go out like that. I think he is gonig to go into this fight with a fury we havn't seen from him in a long time. Probably to the point of hurting himself.
Henderson really didn't look that hot against belfort either. And I am not a Hollywood hater, I have been a fan of his for a long time as well. I just think that this time out it is going to the Axe murderer.
I say, Silva by decision.

I'm with mrsumo on this.
its a tough call either way u wanna look at it.
both fighters have had their ups and downs lately.
Hendo doesnt look inspired lately - the misaki fights. His gas tank was questionable, which led me to believe he wasnt focused or didn't put 100% into his preparation. Against Vitor, well, its Vitor. He's not the same fighter he used to be. He was playing it safe against hendo, fighting not to lose. Steroids didn't help him any for that strategy. And i was there to watch it live. Great technical match on the ground tho.
anyway, back to my point. Hendo seems un-motivated. Dunno if Team quest is hurting from Randy's departure. But besides Lindland being as crazy as he is, they've suffered a few losses of late. Leben, and herman both losing, and they're the rising stars of the camp
Wand? well, i kinda believe him when he talks about being motivated more than ever before. I truly believe he wants to bounce back and prove himself again. Especially since its in the US, where he wants to make a big name for himself. (not that hendo doesn't either tho)
having said that, i'm picking wand - unanimous decision
i'm a fan of both guys. Both have KO power, both will lay it all on the line. I actually think hendo has the better ground game too, but i imagine this won't go to the ground much, its gonna be a slug fest and the defining line for my pick is cuz i think hendo's gas tank is a lil weak....(uh oh, as i type this, i'm picturing 5 min rounds instead of the first 10....damn)
ah well, either way, i cant wait. I'll be there to watch it live......countin the days down.........*sigh*

I'm taking Wand over Hendo cause he is hungry to make up for his loss. I think Hendo's a great fighter but Wand is not out of the picture yet. Getting close, but not yet.
I'm also taking Randy over Tim. Randy is old but Tim is no Chuck in terms of avoiding the grapple and clinch. Just to throw this out there too, I'd take Randy over Munson for those that say Tim CAN avoid the clinch and takedown like he did against Munson. Randy is much better at getting in using his dirty boxing and clinch work. Munson was going for the lower body shot which is tougher these days against experienced people. Randy will setup the clinch with boxing and take him down. Then again, this CAN backfire... Like his last two fights. If Tim does his homework..

Huh. Omega had Henderson winning the first fight? If memory serves, Henderson nearly knocked him out at one point, but the rest of the fight was Silva outpunching him, rocking him several times. Am I totally wrong here? As for this next fight, I think it's a tough call: one good shot from Henderson's heavy hands could easily end it with that recent concussion, but if he doesn't land it Silva will just outscore him again.

Wow, guys, I really think you're counting Silva out way too soon. Ok, he lost to Crocop, one of the best, but he knocked the crap out of Fujita a few months before that. Also, he is only 31 I think he still has a few good years left in him.

On a different note:
Want to challenge some of the other teams to some bragging rights?

Wait a minute I'm not counting Wandi out, he's a great fighter I'm just stating why I think Henderson is going to win. Sort of the same reason I picked GSP to win over Hughes the second time around.
It's the reason why I thought Jardine might actually beat Forrest, although I ended up picking Forrest.
Always beware of a fighter on the upswing.
