Anderson "Spider" Silva VS Dan "Hollywood" Henderson
Thoughts on this fight?

I think Silva is going to tear through Henderson, similar to how he's blown through everyone else. The guy is unstoppable. Hopefully it will be a good long fight.

And the Kongo fight won't be anything new; Kongo beats the other guy up.

have you ever seen henderson fight in pride?

Yes I have, but have you seen ANY of Silva's fights? The guy is a beast. Don't get me wrong, Henderson ain't no joke, but Silva is probably the best MMA fighter I've ever seen.

You're out of your MIND! Hendo is gunna whoop Silva's ass!

The main event is weak, the rest of the card is weak, kinda disappointing, especially compared to 81.

Heath Herring is also looking better than ever. He did really well against Nog but ****ed it up. I don't think hes gonna let himself **** it up again. So it could go either way, if i had to, id put my money on herring.

I don't think the card is weak at all, you get to see the 2 mains, and you get to see awesome fighters, like the sakara vs lieben, andrei arlovski is fighting, jon fitch, koscheck, diego sanchez. granted all those arent going to be broadcast. Not the best card obviously, but not that weak imo.

You can sometimes get really good fights out of "no name" fighters, too. Sometimes I'd rather see some B-list fighters or no names fight one another than a star and a sacrificial lamb.

i was only going on fighters who i recognized, but you're right. a lot of up and comers can show way more heart than the veterans can, and put on an awesome show. this is also why, in part, i like WEC more than UFC.

Henderson vs Silva will probly last long. Henderson went 5 round with Rampage. It wasn't the best fight but 5 rounds with Rampage is pretty crazy. I hope Henderson wins but Silva is on a mad streak.

I don't think the card is weak at all. Middle weight title fight against the (now two) middle weights who can hold the title for quite some time. Herring VS Kongo isn't a bad fight either. I feel Kongo won't have that much of a challenge by how he dominated his previous fights. Herring will probably work the ground game, which would be to his advantage. The other fights are not bad at all.

all good streaks must come to an end. plus like you said henderson lasted 5 rounds wit rampage, silva woulda been knocked out in 1. also silva was in pride in his early carear and he sucked. no affence to silva, but pride is just better.

I can tell you if Silva dominates Henderson, he will never be beaten. Henderson has the best chance, especially with him down to 185.

Silva is unbeatable and one of the best mixed martial artists of all time, and definitely the top middleweight.

Also, Herring dominated Kongo, and the Okami KO was awesome. Great card overall and worth the money, but I am pissed that they didn't show the Arlovski fight.

Silva is amazing. One of my Favorite fighters.

Man, I train in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I wish I was 1/256th the fighter Silva was. He's amazing.

I watched the fights tonight too. Silva is going to be champ for a long long time I think. I'm bummed though that they didn't show Diego's fight or Arlovski's.

I might start BJJ and MT this summer. I can already kick peoples asses, but I need to kick more peoples asses.

Okay, Silva is never giving up that belt. He just tore through Henderson in the 2nd round. Silva has yet to see a UFC 3rd round.

DO IT MAN. It's so worth the price. I feel reborn and at the height of my life by training in it, and actually winning a sanctioned fight, lol. Definitely gets you in shape as well. Even Discovery Channel proved that MMA fighters are more conditioned than any athlete. Plus you learn it fast, and then the rest of your training consists of refining your technique which your already decent at,

Sounds pretty sweet. I'm going to get into slightly better shape first.
