    I would like to see both fights. I think Dan wins over Vitor and wonder how Tito will do after his successful back surgery since he claims to be "100%" now.

    Hendo and Franklin win. No way Belfort can answer Hendo's wrestling or KO him.

    From my understanding the other rumor was put to bed and they had settled on having Dan vs Rich but as the article stated that all changed this past weekend when Affliction folded, thus making the other rumor relevant again.

    He answered Lindlands wrestling pretty well. I think Vitor could definitely win, he's looked good his last 2 fights; he kinda reminds me of machida.

    Dan is a much better fighter and wrestler still than Linland is and he has an iron chin.

    Please explain how Vitor is like Machida?

    I really don't think hes that much better of a wrestler than Lindland, if at all. He's definitely got a better chin though.

    I havent Vitors fights since they aired live but i remember him fighting much smarter, and using more of a quick in-and-out style similar to Machidas. Which is something that would work really well against Dan.

    Hendo is a bad fight for Vitor. I think Hendo will take it via decision. Franklin by split decision.

    Henderson is better fighter overall than Lindland is. Plus, no grappling even happened in Lindland vs Vitor; Matt threw a terrible punch (one of the worst punches ever) and Vitor countered it, and then it was over.


    That said, I don't really care who would win... I just hope it's good. That is, if it happens. :o

    Obviously vitor wouldn't out-clinch/wrestle Lindland or Henderson, he'll stay light on his feet and make sure Henderson never gets his hands on him while he picks him apart with kicks/punches and then attack when he sees an opening.

    edit: Just rewatched the fight, I got the lindland fight mixed up with his fight against terry martin. There really isn't much to go off of in the lindland fight since there was only one exchange where Lindland got KO'd.

    I really wish they gave Vitor a warmup fight, hes a talented dude with a ton of potential. He probably won't beat Dan, but itll be a good fight i think.

    Theyre pretty much equal imo, but Lindland did win a silver medal in the olympics and Dan didnt lol.

    I think Dan's wrestling for mma is better than Lindlands. However, I do believe Lindlands overall wrestling is a bit better than Hendo's. Koscheck was a great NCAA wrestler but GSP's wrestling for mma is still better imo, just an an analogy.
