    The problem with this fight is that the winner does what? Goes into contention for the belt? Against the Spider? Hmm, so we have two of the past Spider victims fighting to see who gets to losse against Silva again? It could be a great fight, but the end would be so anti-climactic knowing that neither have the tools to take out the champ.

    The fight would be brilliant. Silva outclasses them both though.

    Hendo should really just get to maul someone before they put him against the number one contender for the title shot again. They are just determined to give him the hardest possible run of UFC fights they can.

    I don't agree that henderson has no shot against silva. he dominated the first round of that fight; if it'd been held under the old ufc rules, with no rounds & no standups, he'd have won IMO.

    I support this match up, if only because it gives Franklin someone good to fight besides Silva. I already felt like he was put in a position where he can't win against Silva, but beats everybody else. This match up is the solution.

    Yuck.
    So what you're saying is all white guys look alike to you.

    well yes--but more to the point, he wasn't dominated, just ko'd. there's a difference.

    franklin was never in either fight with silva; henderson definitely was. a rematch wouldn't be a foregone conclusion.

    First of all, Henderson tapped out, he wasn't knocked out. Have you even seen the fight you are commentating on?

    yes, my bad, he tapped ... after he caught a knee that pretty much ended it. my point stands; henderson was very much in that fight. anyone can get hit with a big shot.
