Henderson hasn't shown improvement,
his wins over Palhares and Franklin were less than impressive to most people,
and although the shot to Bisbing was good, Bisbing was circling into his power and and Hendo won't be able to stalk wide open at Anderson like that.

I said Hendo but I admit some of that is just my bias. He controlled Anderson for one round but I kind of doubt he can do it for 5, or for that matter avoid being KO'd. I think he wins the clinch game with Anderson but the reach is going to hurt him. Screw it Hendo for the win!

I think Silva will be less complacent coming into this fight. He'll train harder and, if the thought of being controlled by Hendo in the last fight worries him a little, we may even see an improved Silva.

Although which Silva shows up will depend on how his fight with Forrest goes.
If he gets rocked or hurt or KOed by Forrest will he be 100% mentally and physically coming into this fight?
If he destroys Forrest will he return to complacency?
Will Forrest find a hole in his game much like the leg kicks with Rampage?
Will Silva concentrate on training for Hendo's wrestling, only to find Hendo has concentrated his training on his hands, kinda sorta like Mir vs Nog?

Hendo came into the cage without no warm up and fought two title fights, it was a lot of pressure and i think he will be in a lot better posistion to give Anderson more trouble this time.

His championship pedigree and record, and recent streak dictates that he earns another shot and out of all the challengers, only Dan Henderson for me posseses all the best tools to dethrone the spider.

Can't wait for this one!

Close fight but i believe Hendo could pull it off!
