    I like Franklink but i think Henderson will win…this one is a toss up…both men need this win badly to stay alive and in the title hunt picture.

    Damn, how can you not like either guy in this fight…I want to see a battle that goes down to the wire but doesn't go decision….don't think that'll be a problem with these guys…more than likely someone is gonna get caught with a flurry of punches, and THAT will probably be the deciding factor….loser of this match isn't a LOSER…but I don't know if either guy can afford it…Henderson probably more so than Rich(who's record is pretty good outside of matches with silva)

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for both men. They are what MMA is all about. I wish others in the UFC would take a few notes. Should be a hell of a fight!

    i also like both fighters, but as with pride fighters, i think dan henderson is a lot of wanderlei — tons of experience, but already suffering from their battle scars. decreased reflexes, more cautious, less aggressive, etc. franklin should pull this one out.

    could go eaither way i think rich will be the crisper on the feet

    dan will have the takedowns and the clinch and if he lands hat over hand right it could be all over for sure

    i think richs ground game and his ability o stand up will decide the fight

    then again they might turn this one into a boxing match and see who falls first

    my money is on the younger franklin

    I like Franklin he is need of a win more so other than the Silva fights he looked great so you cant bypass his abilities…Dan is also in need of a win should be great fight…best of luck to both men but as long as Silva stays champ none of these guys will become one themselves.

    I want Henderson to win just because he needs the win. I do like Franklin though and I agree with Derek, I think he will walk away with his hand raised. Franklin has really good standup and I think Henderson will have some trouble shooting in on Franklin. It will be a good fight though, even if it goes to decision. Both of these men have good conditioning.
