    Belfort was on roids and looked awful in that fight. If you have some information that I ignore, please provide it.

    Maybe true, you have a point, BUT Hendo lost two straight fights in lackluster performances, and Belfort has been getting the job done in brutal fashion...Why would Hendo risk it and risk getting tagged and finished.. Hendo has a granite chin and is almost impossible to KO, BUT if someone can do it, it is Vitor, he has the speed and power to do it, and Hendo is taking a big risk standing instead of playing it safe..

    exactly, this is what I'm saying..

    Vitor takes this in the third by TKO!

    Vitor has a huge speed advantage, but he doesn't use it as well as Lyoto. Vitor's blitzes usually end when he rocks/TKOs his opponent, or if they force a scramble and get out of the way. Staying in the pocket like that will get you laid out by Hendo. Lyoto does those quick karate/fencing style lunges, then gets right back out. Hendo couldn't connect as much as he wanted on the feet, but he'll have a lot more to aim at against Vitor.

Plus it looks like this fight is at 205 which is much more in Hendo's favor than Vitor's.

    Also just because Hendo has not been using his wrestling that often lately doesn't mean he can't pull that card out. Trust me he is watching that Jones v. Vitor fight and seeing just how bad Vitor's takedown defense is. This fight will look a lot like Vitor v. Couture III, Hendo just beats him up everywhere and the ref pulls him off in the 4th.
    I could agree with everything except the part about Rashad being a better striker, no way he's better than Vitor IMHO. Since they're teamates I guess we'll never know, but I'd love to see those sparring sessions.

    Speed, it's all about the speed, man. That's what Lyoto had on Hendo. Hendo slowed down unfortunately, but still, it's not a good idea to stand toe to toe with old Hendo. You could be right about the wrestling. I think that's Hendo's best bet if it gets into the later rounds (if he doesn't have to struggle with the takedowns).
