“I like the fight for Dan,” said Couture in an interview with The MMA Show.

“Obviously Jones is a tall order with a 96-inch reach [actually 84.5] and as athletic and dynamic of an athlete that he is, but I think Dan has two things going for him. One is that right hand, but two, at the end of the day it’s going to be that wrestling mentality — closing the distance, wading through Jon, taking him out of that long-range dynamic striking reach he likes and forcing him to wrestle,” he explained. “Dan was a two-time Olympic wrestler, and I think if he makes Jones wrestle and does it for five rounds he has a real good chance of winning that fight. (Plus) you may see an ‘H-bomb’ hit Jon Jones in the head at anytime with Danny, so I really like that fight for him.”

One thing I like that he said is "Dan's mentality"...

I think a lot of guys that fought JBJ... were secretly afraid from watching what he did to other guys. They're human.

It's the same mystique Fedor had... and Dan gained weight to fight him.

BUT!!!! Rampage outwrestled Dan Henderson... so did Jake Shields.

I don't know if he's at that level of mystique yet.

I feel like Anderson and maybe GSP are the only ones who really have that going for them. As often as not, their opponents are fighting to survive, not to win.

JBJ was destroying dudes before anyone knew who he was. Stephen Bonnar had never heard of him until he got dropped by a spinning back elbow. Vera admitted he thought he was just some rookie and didn't even train that hard for him.

I think he's getting there quickly, though.

If this turns into a 5 round wrestling match I think Dan gasses in the 2nd or 3rd round. He was gassed badly against Shogun by then, and Jones GnP is brutal.

Pulling for Dan though, get that win!

Amazing how ignorant dogs still stick there tongues out of there mouth about this crap. Yea in Hendo's only loss in his last 8 he was hurt, as they said just before the fight. He had a bad back and neck and was forced into a very tough cut in the last 24 due to a medication he was taking.

Hendo was not outwrestled by Page either. He had several TS's, Page did hold his own no question. Page was no joke back then.

Can't wait till this bout! I think Hendo lands an h bomb more than once. I also think he will fight a bit smarter than usual, he knows what to expect. Let's hope so at least. Phone Post
