    If you're talking about the Silva/Henderson fight, I think that it should be a good one. Most folks are writing Silva off because Dan has that serious knock out power...Silva is a great striker though. It should be pretty good!

    Im holding out the Penn/Sherk fight though...I dont know when it is supposed to happen.

    my thoughts exactly. I can never really count Silva out. he can manage to pull some moves out of no where. he has some really good stiking and submission skills. but Dan has fought and beaten bigger and stronger guys. He stood toe to toe with Wanderlei and knocked him out over in Pride...

    yea true i think were on the same page. the good thing for silva is he really doesnt stand toe to toe. he is the kind of fighter that likes to pik people apart. i like silva for that and the reasons you posted and hope he wins. He is really good at findin a way to beat guys, which i like. BUT the fact of hendesons power and persistance still worries me.

    Silva has very good hands, he hits with speed and is very accurate which makes him a very dangerous opponent.Both men have ground skills, this should be a great fight.

    I read an article claiming that Henderson along with a few other UFC fighters actually wants out of the UFC. He says that he is going to finish his contract and take off to another league. I dont know which one. There is rumor that the guys who created Pride are getting back together and calling it something else.

    you cant ever count silivia out because : Did anyone see him ko trey tilligan by way of a high kick to the head. for his size he prob has to me the highest and fastest high kick for a man his size.

    thats crazy i wonder why they want out if that is true. I think ufc has the best fighters and maybe thats why they want out cause they think they have more of a chance of bein a top fighter.

    I think that it's because Dana White is starting to become something of a new version of Don King in relation to how he treats the fighters...

    Henderson lost by choke out and I`m not surprised, the spider looks hard to beat right now.

    As bas as I wanted Dan Henderson to win, I had a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that he wasnt going to. The best fight of the night was Leben and Sakara, but Herring and Kongo was a pretty good one too.

    Now who does Silva fight, in my opinion he hasn`t even been tested yet.
