    Default UFC 88 Henderson vs Palhares

    Could be a tough matchup for Dan. He's been submitted now by 3 guys related to BTT and Palhares just subbed Salaverry.

    Hendo may look to keep this standing and try and KO him with the big right hand. Palhares is built like a stump.

    I was thinking the same thing but he runs the risk of ending up on bottom where he's very likely to get caught. This guy reminds me a little of Filho (although Filho is more aggressive and has better takedowns)

    3 in a row would look real bad (even though 2 were title shots and he was in all of the first fight and won the 1st round in the second)

    Is this rumored or just a hypothetical?

    Oh wow, I am a bit surprised as I was expecting a Franklin vs. Henderson matchup. Big step up for Palharas but he does have some serious skill on the ground.

    That matchup would be headline worthy. Henderson could lose here which would make that matchup less interesting. Although Palhares is relatively unknown, he's a tough matchup for Dan.

    I'd like to see Henderson fight Silva again since he's one of the only guys who has a chance of beating him. Like to see Franklin fight all the top guys but Silva; he was afraid of him last fight and I don't think he would ever truly go after him.

    Didn't both the Noguieras sub him from the bottom?

    I think both were on top; started off with a kimura and passed his head and turned it to an armbar (that's true for at least one match, but I believe it is true for both).

    The heavier Nog had one of Dan's arms caught under his barred arm adding extra leverage.
