    They wouldnt do that to Franklin.

    I agree that Henderson would be the favorite in that fight but lets not forget that Franklin only losses are to the best middleweight and the one of the best lhw's.

    He is still a great fighter and a fight against Henderson would be a great one in my mind.

    Henderson needs a win. 3 losses to start his return to the UFC isn't good for marketing. Maybe he will get Franklin in a fight or 2. That would be interesting. I would be pullin hard for Hendo, but Franklin has only lost to top comp and is very dangerous.

    Im not saying he sucks or anything but I think Hendo finishes him in convincing fashion.

    Word, I like Henderson but Franklin is one of my favorite fighters so I am a bit biased.

    I'd be pulling hard for Dan, too, but don't forget in his last 5 fights at MW, he is 3-2, with all of his wins by decision (1 by split decision, although that was 3 years ago.) I don't think he will just walk through Henderson.

    Great match up . Really impressed with Palhares. Hendo will be looking to knock his head off and avoid the takedown. Will be a tough test for both guys. War Hollywood!

    I think they need to set Franklin up with some top guys - otherwise, why keep him around? He's had 2 title shots and I don't want to see him get a 3rd because I think he's too worried about Anderson (for what he did to his nose the first time - I wouldn't want to mess with someone who did that to me)

    If Henderson wins, that would be a great fight. Then if Henderson wins that, give him another shot at Silva.

    Henderson is a bit like 2 other wrestlers, Sherk and CB in that they all throw bombs that could end the night but miss 9 out of 10 times (with CB I am mainly talking about his first loss to Amir where he was missing on top constantly)
