Wow, this is probably one of the most one sided polls I remember seeing lately. Right now it is 16-1 in favor of Hendo of course. I would say Hendo wins 10/10 fights with Hughes and I really don't think that Hughes has that much of a submission advantage over Henderson.
Hughes just would be too outsized and outpowered. He has great wrestling but so does Hendo, therefore it would be a standup battle. And I'm pretty sure we can see from what happened to The Count that Hendo would have a striking advantage
henderson, then and now. he is a better wrestler and his striking has always been FAR better than hughes'. hughes would not be able to take him down and would get kill standing.
I dunno what you guys are thinking, but I'd give it to Hughes.
Back a few years ago, Hughes would maybe win, but right now, Henderson would KTFO Hughes. Hughes is done, he hasn't looked good in awile.
it's actually a relief to see that no one picked Hughes on this one...
While they're both great wrestlers, Hendo stand up would annihilate Hughes besides Hughes seems now like he hates getting rocked.
In their prime, it is a closer match. Hendo takes it still.
If they fought now, I see Hughes getting KO'd.
is this a joke?
hendo by anything he wants. they both have excellent and underrated bjj, but i don't see the sub from either of them. hendo gets subbed by nobody the but brazilian demigods anyway
I like a bigger Henderson in this fight. His wrestling and striking is better, but Hughes would have a submission advantage.
On a semi-related note, I was watching a replay of Franklin VS. Tanner for the UFC Middleweight title. The stipulation was if Franklin won (which he did), he would get to coach the ultimate fighter. Hughes and Franklin didn't fight at the finale because they were friends. If Tanner won, however, he would have coached that season of TUF and fought Matt Hughes at 185 at the finale.
