    I've seen nothing from hendo in 2 years to indicate he could beat vitor these days.

    Vitor wins this time.

    Hendo just depends on his H-bomb and granite chin. His cardio is not good and I do not see him beating Belfort like he did 7 years ago.

    I'd say Hendo is the same fighter he's always been too, except he doesn't use his wrestling as much, and seems slower. Granted, he did recently fight two very fast guys in Rashad and Machida, but he's still seems a step behind.

    TRT-Vitor on the other hand, seems to have added wisdom to his arsenal along with kicks as you pointed out. He doesn't bull-rush guys like the old days, he's more patient, and strikes when the opportunity comes, and has the speed and power to make it count. He even attempted an armbar! However, I would still question Vitor's heart and stamina. He faded a bit against Jones when things got tough, as he has in the past. If this goes to deep water, it favours Hendo IMO. I doubt Vitor could survive the beating Shogun took.

    Okay, so maybe I'm backtracking a bit, lol.

    I genuinely believe Hendo does not give a fuck and would fight him again, especially since he's dropped his last two (albeit by split decision).

    And the fucking site just stuck me on a different format. Fucking wonky ass iPhone.

    Belfort takes this with vicious power, speed and furiosity.

    Two things:

    1. When was the last time we really saw Hendo's grappling in full effect?

    and

    2. Great chins don't last forever and Dan's reaction time has definitely declined.

    Agreed, if Hendo can drag this to the ground or make it into a clinch war against the cage he can win. But if this is a straight up stand-up battle, I don't think Hendo is fast enough anymore. Vitor might be one of the few people who can KO Hendo.

    Vitor simply has too many tools in his arsenal IMO this time around.

    He's just so much faster than Hendo and Hendo's game has stagnated so greatly, that all he has is that one fastball pitch to throw and once you know its coming, that's really all Vitor has to prepare and concern himself with.

    Now, if old "Decision Dan" were to pop back up and look to make this a dirty boxing clinch battle against the cage and just tried to turn it into a dogfight in close range, MAYBE he could wear on Vitor enough, get him down and ride him for a UD. I just don't think he's got that much left in him.....

    They should've made Vitor/Consta since it actually makes sense at MW. If I were Hendo, maybe I'd say something like, "I don't want to fight somebody who I've already beaten while he was cheating and pissed hot after the fight", but then again, that might bring unwanted scrutiny upon himself.
