Dan Henderson is one of the greatest middleweights of all-time and a former Pride Champion. It was actually Anderson Silva who took Henderson's Pride middleweight title, so he has a good insight into Silva's upcoming title defense:

"I really haven't seen much of Chris Weidman, I know he's very well rounded and very tough and just a tough dude on his feet and a wrestler as well, so I think he's capable of putting Anderson on his back and also striking with him. But he hasn't been tested very well with his chin and Anderson definitely will test it, he's very accurate with his striking. I would probably have to bet on Anderson if I was going to bet."

Goku will take this one hard. He really believed Dana when he said every fighter in the UFC was picking Weidman Phone Post

Pulling for Weidman because I want a change. Think Silva may KO him quick. Phone Post

Kinda surprised to hear Hendo go with Anderson considering Weidman's a wrestler, etc.

This will be an interesting fight.

I'm not even close to a Anderson but higher but I honestly do not think Anderson is worried about anything Dan can offer at this point. Phone Post 3.0

I would also bet on Anderson.

At the same time, Weidman may have the right tools to survive 5 rounds and get a decision.

I guess Dan didn't read his email from the UFC about the Weidman hype-train talking points.

Dan seems like the kinda badass to not even own an email address. Phone Post

Although I think Weidman is really good and may pull off an upset, of course I am picking Anderson Silva.

Silva should be favored in EVERY fight from 205 on down with the possible exception of J. Jones.

Survive 5 rounds =/= winning said rounds Phone Post
