    If Hendo can get past Belfort, which is a difficult fight as Belfort is on such a tear, could he be next for the winner of Jones/ Teixeira?

    Imo I think Jones would like that fight as its another big name to add to his resume?

    Thoughts?

    No. He may get to fight someone of Gus' caliber though.

    I doubt it. Doesn't matter, though. TRT Vitor is too much for Dan now. I just hope he doesn't knock Dan out. Dan deserves to retire with his granite chin intact.

    Thing is I don't think Dan will retire until he gets KO'd.

    He lost to Rashad his last fight. I think he would have to destroy Belfort and even then I don't think he should be number 1.

    Henderson is on a 2 fight losing streak, and it would be hard for him to steal Belfort's title shot since this fight is at 205 lbs. and Belfort's title shot is at 185 if he wins.

    I'd really hope not. Belfort hasn't accomplished anything at LHW for a while.

    That comeback win against Rumble was pretty sweet.

    That was at 197 and only because Rumble couldn't make 185 iirc

    Hendo is done. Vitor will stop his brain.

    Hendo owes a fight to Jones.

    He'd be up there, but I don't think Hendo can beat TRT Vitor. ...and I'm a Hendo fan. :(
