    I totally agree with Rivethead above.

    Sonnen couldn't even rock Hendo in a mount, Hendo's head is just too hard and tough to even cut against Sonnens pillow fists.

    From the showing Hendo last put on, (at 205) Hendo would have the power to drop Sonnen all the way into the fith round. He'd only have to connect once timing the takedown attempts Sonnen would be laying on him. Sonnen could only grind out a decision against Hendo and It'd be a shit fight too.

    At 185, Sonnen has a solid chance to win an uneventful decision, depending on Dan's weight cut. Far from "mauling" him, Sonnen's gnp would be entirely points-based and do [as usual] little or no damage.

    If Henderson has a good weight cut, it's anyone's game.

    At 205, Hendo wins 9 out of 10.

    The MMA math is this thread is almost as hilarious as the overhype Sonnen is now getting. If Sheilds [who is a better grappler than Sonnen, all day long] can grind out a win over an injured Henderson with a bad weight cut, the "relentless" Sonnen is going to totally dominate him. riiiiiiiight.

    Unless "relentless" is a new interweb buzz-term for "pillowfisted." In that case, my bad, I didn't get the memo.

    At 205 I give it to Hendo because he keeps his speed and agility. He defeneds takedowns much better at 205 and would eventually end up on top of Sonnen where he would drop some Hendo bombs.
    Ya basically how I see it. Sonnen has never looked good at 205, and Hendo just doesn't cut weight well anymore. 5+ years ago, Hendo wins at either weight class hands down.

    Hendo has a punchers chance in any fight he takes, but Chael wins this at either weight class by out wrestling him.

    Dan had a very bad back injury and a resulting bad weight cut as well.

    He does have good tdd, that fight is just not a good example of it, as the case with other fights. He is kinda off and on in that area.

    He does have huge power, he isnt a precision striker like Anderson, he will only need one big bomb.

    Chael takes this at 185 he would just grind out a win. I'd even go so far to say he would likely take it at 205 as well.

    chael at 185 because the wieght cut seemed to take a toll on dan in recent fights.

    I think Hendo was taken down so easily against Sheilds because he was drained and didn't handle the weight cut well. I think age has finally become a major factor for Hendo getting down to 185. As of right now, Chael would take down and control Dan en route to a unanimous decision. The Henderson of five years ago would be a completely different story.
