"On Saturday night I am going to have to fight Fedor a lot differently to how Werdum and Silva did, but I will come up with the same result. I expect the majority of the fight to take place on our feet and in the clinch. Iím looking to strike with him as much as possible and to knock him out when the opportunity presents itself. Thereís a good chance it will go to the ground, too, and Iím fine with that. I can see myself putting him on his back and punishing himÖ Iíve always looked at Fedor as a similar fighter to me in many ways, but I consider myself better in most areas. I just feel I do everything a little better than he does. Iím better than him in the clinch, and I feel that my striking is more technical and sharper than hisÖ Fedorís extremely quick for a heavyweight, but I am no heavyweight Ė and I am quick for a light-heavyweight. If anybody can match him for speed and explosiveness, Iíd like to think that person is me. Iíll be much lighter than Fedor on Saturday, and with that comes speed. Fedor wonít be able to get away with the things he tries on bigger and slower opponentsÖ I donít know what a win over Fedor does for my legacy Ė thatís up to the fans and media to decide Ė but it does a lot for my own pride and motivation. I keep taking these big challenges because I believe I can conquer them, and so long as I can keep proving people wrong, Iíll be sticking around."

Good luck.

Grappling = Fedor.
(No I don't care that 15 years ago Dan took 10th and 12th at the Olympics)
Fedor has 17 Sambo Titles, (as recent as 2009 world champion)
and 5 Judo titles

Striking = Fedor
I don't care about the right hand of Henderson.
Other than Bisping, Henderson hasn't looking amazing, Rafael got wreckless,
Fedor won't. Fedor's right has stopped AA, Rogers, Sylvia before his recent two losses)

Weight = Fedor
Experience = Tie
Speed = Fedor

I don't think Hendo has ever been truely KO'd and I hope this will be the first time for it. This should be a great fight to watch and I expect Hendo to do what hes been doing trying to land that 'right', but I agree Fedor I think is faster and should either TKO or sub him.

I'm glad my free subscription to Showtime started up last month. Darn well better be free for the hassles I've had to deal with.

While I like both fighters, I rooting for Fedor in this.

We wrangled 6 months of free Showtime from Comcast so we could get the fight. Woohoo. :happydancing:

I love both fighters, I don't know who to root for!!!:unsure:

That's F'ng Bull s!@t he wasnt even out! He was turning around when that pri$& stopped the fight!!!

Dana really Hates Fedor! I mean to actually go as far as to pay off Herb Dean!!! That's some BS!!

And here I had Herb being the most legit in the sport!

Cmon guys how can yall call that a quick stoppage? Dana mustve paid fedor to drop like a sack of potatoes after that punch. I mean rewatch it, Fedor FOLDED. Theres no way he wasnt out. If the fight wouldve been called 2 seconds earlier b4 Fedor woke up and rolled over, thered be no discussion. Just took Herb a sec to break up the action.

No no.. haven't heard? The new way to intelligently defend ones self is to roll over on your back, and expose your face! Early stoppage!

Well, the way it looked from the camera angle we got, I also wondered if it had been an early stoppage which surprised me since it was Herb Dean and he's a veteran ref, and then the camera followed Dan afterward so I couldn't see Fedor to see what he looked like right after the stoppage. However, after the fight, they started showing it from all different angles and you could see Fedor did look out after that uppercut Dan threw even though he did roll over on his back after a couple of seconds. Plus, the commentators who were there said Fedor was clearly out of it.

Dan deserves kudos for keeping his wits about him and getting out from under Fedor and landing that uppercut from under Fedor's arm. I think Fedor rolling over was more from being dazed and confused and not because he was trying to defend. Herb could see what was going on and how Fedor looked, we couldn't, so I think it was a correct stoppage. Even if Herb hadn't stopped it when he did, he was bound to stop it soon because Dan was all over Fedor blasting him once Fedor rolled over and gave him an even better shot at his face.

I'm glad I went with my gut feeling and went with Dan on this one. :)
