In reply to ggxky, #5497:Probably not, but he did KO Fedor, so he's got a better claim than most other heavyweights.
In reply to Majtaj, #5499:I hope White makes it happen. He'd be the only fighter to hold titles in three different weight classes in three different organizations........wouldn't he?
In reply to Majtaj, #5499:That's kind of thing isn't it? As much as we look at the match-up and think JDS would smash him on paper, Hendo's no slouch and he's done some impressive work in his career, even against heavyweights. So if he's willing to step in, I say why not?And honestly, his all-in attitude reminds me why I'm so lukewarm on Anderson.
In reply to dude_stud, #5508:I don't know if I'd call Sean McCorkle great or even good, but I'd agree that Hunt is the next logical heavyweight behind Mir. But again, I wouldn't pass on Hendo. Say what you will about the direction of Fedor's career (I wouldn't call him washed up any more than I would Randy after his last few losses), but Hendo did what no man has ever been able to do and turned his lights out.The reality is, as much as I love me some Mark Hunt and his walk away ko's, Dan is the more marketable fighter and this would be one of the Pride-style weight class-ignoring superfights I've missed for a long time. JDS would do serious harm to him? Yeah, that's what the sport's all about. But I'm not convinced Dan would be in any more danger of being seriously injured than he'd be against, say, Anderson or Jon Jones.
