LOL... I think he meant that he looked "chubby" compared to JDS.

That's just the way that Cain is though...

Not everyone looks like Brock or Kongo.

Cain couldn't cope with the speed and boxing of JDS. I saw Cain going for a single leg takedown but JDS scrambled away.

I just caught the Henderson vs Guida fight today and man was that a good fight. Ben Henderson puts on some of the best fights. If you guys haven't seen his fight against Donald Cerrone it's worth a watching.

Agree with the Bendo comments, Cerrone is a beast too. His beating of Siver (who is a good fighter) was crazzyyyy:

Main Card:
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Dan Henderson (2 round TKO)
Wanderlei Silva vs. Cung Le (UD)
Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles (3 round sub)
Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story (UD)
Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury (UD)

(My picks in bold)

Shogun vs. Hendo is going to amazing. Battle of two granite chins, Shogun with the striking advantage and Hendo with the wrestling advantage. This will be a striking battle, with Shogun coming out on top.

Wanderlei vs Le is going to be good too. Wanderlei's chin isn't what it used to be, but Le is very overrated. Another striking battle, one in which I see Wanderlei outstriking Le to a UD win.

Ya, Cung Le is boss. I think he has all the tools necessary to take out Wandy. Dan Henderson on the other hand has never been knocked out in his 14 year career. Matter of fact he hasn't even been TKO'd which means he hasn't even been rattled. I could see him going 5 rounds with Jones but Jones would probably win every single round.

I hope Wandy destroys Le.

Hendo has been dazed in his fights before, not often though (for example in the Fedor fight). I think that Shogun has a better chin than Hendo, he has only been (t)ko'd legitimately once in his career (not counting his injury to Coleman). Before the Jones fight, Shogun was dazed once in his whole career. What makes that even more impressive is that Shogun has faced some of the best strikers ever (Overeem x2, Rampage, Diabate, Machida x2, prime Lil' Nog, and Liddell). Taking nothing away from Hendo, his competition has been good to. As you all saw, Shogun took an absolutely one sided beating from Jones for 3 rounds and he was still moving forward (until the end of the 3rd). This beating would've (t)ko'd most people in the first or second round.

If Wanderlei loses this fight then I'd say he hangs them up for good.

I hated watching the axe murderer in UFC. It was like a shade of his former self when he used to kick major ass in Pride

Ages:

Matt Hughes: 39
Crocop: 37
Tito Ortiz: 36
Fedor: 35
Wanderlei: 35
Big Nog: 35

Rampage: 33 (starting to decline now)

Shogun: 30 (in a few weeks)


There's a reason why Shogun is still pretty much in his prime and the rest of those guys are washed up (or close).

It's not a PRIDE thing... it's an age thing... They're old.

Back when PRIDE was in it's prime those guys were Shogun's age and younger..... VERY, very rare to find a guy like Randy Couture who can excel well into his late 30s and 40s. The speed and the chin just isn't there any more.

Remember in pride when Shogun TKO'd Rampage with soccer kicks to the head? That shit was brutal.

- Cung Le looks slow in the cage. I think Wanderlei will mow right through him.
- Shogun might be able to ugly up the fight for a while, but Hendo has been smashing everthing not named Anderson Silva lately.
- Faber wins by rear naked choke round 2
