Default Dan Henderson: I'm Better In Most Areas Than Fedor

http://www.mmaconvert.com/2011/07/25...r-emelianenko/

"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.

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

I just called DISH and asked if they were running a promo for SHOWTIME and they are so we're going to get the fight too!

I'm feeling Dan for this one...sorry Fedor.
