    Conor is a very bad style matchup for Hendo. He's obviously a far superior striker, and Hendo is old, no longer durable, and they're a similar size. Conor would toy with him and KO him in the first round. He only has to avoid the H-Bomb, unless we see the return of wrestler Dan. I think Dan will look to stand and KO Conor rather than look for takedowns. But even if he tries, he's too slow to close the distance and get Conor down.

    This would be a way for Dan to make the biggest payday of his career in his final fight. And Conor would simultaneously be Middleweight champion and Featherweight champion.

    Hell yeah. Conor easily beats Alvarez and Woodley, so there's a real chance here for the FIRST EVER UFC 4 DIVISION WORLD CHAMPION.

    WAR CONOR

    Nate hit Conor with a 1-2 that had him renting a place on queer street, so obviously it'd be good for him to be taking punches from one of the heaviest hitters ever to fight in the sport in any weight class.

    you best believe, if hendo ever did anything half as sloppy as this against conor, conor would literally flatline him.

    Conor wouldn't get hit. He isn't gonna let an old, slow, Dan Henderson hit a telegraphed overhand right.

    Hendo might even be at a reach disadvantage, considering that Conor fights long, controls distance well, and has kicks.

    I'd like to see the Bisping fight too. But Bisping has big height and reach and fights going backwards, so Conor will have a tough time getting on the inside. Michael doesn't have Nate's chin though.

    If Aldo had just used leg kicks this shit wouldn't be happening.

    Literally all he had to do was circle and throw kicks instead of running at him.

    Considering he takes big shots from guys over 200 lbs and survives most, I'd say hes got a better chin than Nate, dead serious.
    He's been knocked out by Hendo and Vitor, both on juice, in a 35 fight career

    Henderson would duck into a well placed uppercut.

    He gets rocked quite a lot though. Silva, Leites, Dollway, Rockhold, Belfort, Rivera, Wand, Kang, Hendo, Hamill. That's off the top of my head. I don't remember if Stann hurt him at any point but it wouldn't be surprising.

    Some would say getting rocked a lot and recovering is the sign of a good chin but I don't agree. The recovery part is obviously good. But that he's getting rocked so much in the first place is a bad sign.
