im having a hard time trying to figure out who wins this matchup...
i think franklin has the edge in striking because of his straight shots landing before hendo's looping shots can connect.
franklin wont look to take it to the ground, but hendo will....
i also wish this fight was 5 rounds. the strategy would definitely change.
Hendo is way too spastic with his grappling and lacks the ground control he'd need to win the fight against ACE.
I think Franklin gets the three round nod. But it will be very close
Doesnt Franklin have looping punches as well though?
Actually yeah it'd be great if Dana just made this a 5-round super fight.
I give the edge to ace but Hendo can never be counter out.
Franklin, split decision.
hendo by decision
franklin will throw some hooks, whereas hendo will throw wide haymakers.
when you compare them to someone as crisp as silva.
he is much more tecnical than hendo though.
and i call rich to win
I think hendo looks much better at 205 then rich does
Rich just throws punches at weird angles. His hooks come from all angles, but his left comes straight down the pipe.
Hendo will win.
This isn't hard. Hendo via UD.
I always liked his weird right hook, nice southpaw style.
Hendo 51% Rich 49%
Hendo by KO or TKO.
Close fight but I see it for Franklin.
hendo by cauliflower ear
I like Henderson, but I'd go with Franklin on this.
I think Franklin wins it easily at 185, but at 205 it's anyone's fight.
Franklin will probably be more crisp and technical, allowing him to get a decision - but I wouldn't be surprised if Hendo won it.
franklin is NOT going to knock hendo out, hendo has the advantage on the ground...unless franklin just peppers him standing up for 3 rounds and wins a decision, and i don't think hendo would let that happen
Henderson will probably run out of gas about halfway through the 2nd round.
