Chael Sonnen vs Forrest Griffin II set for December 29th. Yes, I said part II as they have fought before with Griffin winning by submission. Chael is moving up to 205. I see Chael winning this one and Forrest retiring after this fight. To me it just doesn'et seem like he has it anymore.
Here is the video from their first meeting.
3 Big fights announced for UFC on Fox 5!
Ben Henderson vs Nate Diaz for the Lightweight Title
BJ Penn vs Rory MacDonald
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs Alexander Gustafsson
So what do you think? Can Dan Henderson pull it off as planned? Or does Jon Jones put Hendo to sleep? We'll find out for sure on September 1st, 2012 however if I had to choose right now, I'd say Jones gets the win via submission.Quote:

If Dan Henderson (29-8) has his way, he plans to defeat Jon Jones (16-1) without leaving any hesitation in the fans mind who won the fight."With Jon Jones, I prepare on winning every round," said Henderson. "I want to make sure I win every round so there is no question."
While Henderson looks to dominate every round, if the time is right, he knows he can end the fight early.
"If I can hit him in the right spot, at the right time, and finish him that's even better," said Henderson.
With the exception of a DQ lose, Jones is undefeated in his MMA career. He won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in 2011 and has defended it successfully three times, all against former champions. Henderson is on a four fight win streak and looks to win his first UFC championship.
"I don't plan on wasting this opportunity and making sure I come out on top no matter what it takes," said Henderson. "I know I can beat anybody out there if I perform the way I can."
Jones vs. Henderson takes place September 1 at UFC 151.
Isn't Hendo on the downside of his career? Not that that discounts him from winning.
PS: Rob, that sig of yours is giving me nightmares. :eek:
Frankie finally moving down to 145!
