Dan Henderson and Anderson Silva fight tonight at UFC 82. It’s the main event of the card and the match that I am looking forward to the most. Henderson is fighting in a different weight division (his last bought against Quinton Jackson was as a light heavyweight) so it should be interesting to see if he has a lot more strength than Silva.
I don’t know what to expect. They are both relatively the same height (Silva is 1 inch taller than the 6’1″ Henderson). Silva is known for knocking people out and Henderson has never been knocked out. Silva is a striker and Henderson doesn’t mind to exchange either. However on the ground their styles are some what different. Henderson is more of a ground and pound guy while Silva is a black belt in jiu-jitsu. It is interesting to point out that Silva received his belt from Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira who beat Henderson in a Pride fight by armbar.
I don’t really have a favorite or a person who I prefer to win. All I know is that I will be surprised if it isn’t a full out war.
