    He's been talking tons of smack lately, you know he still wants that fight, you guys think he's trying to talk his way back into the picture? Obviously he should be focused on Gegard, but I truly think Dan has a good chance of landing the ol' h bomb that night for some reason. You guys think he'll go back up to 205 after that fight? If so are any of you guys interested in Jones/Henderson? I was very intrigued by that fight when it was supposed to happen, and I was pretty bummed when it got canceled.

    I'd totally be down for them to set this fight up again if Dan can get a solid win or 2 under his belt. I mean who else is there anyway after Gus/Rumble.

    Henderson/Rampage 2 anyone?

    Jones could downgrade to crack and still beat Old man river

    it was Jones who came out with the "Hendo is 60 years old" comments to put down Cormier.

    as much as I like Hendo, Jones would make very short work of him but it was a douchey comment from Jones out of left field. I'd like to see Jones still compete at age 40+, openweight across 3 divisions like Hendo.

    Hendo might be getting old.. But i don't think he's senile enough to think he wouldn't get murdered by JJ just yet.

    Hendo wins. DQ because of illegal blows.

    Hendo/Bisping 2 would be more entertaining.

    Dan is a legend. But he's done as an elite fighter. It's fun time. He should be fighting the Rampages Rich Franklins and Forrest Griffins of the world. Hendo is the reason you keep people like Ortiz and Bonner around. Big name meaningless fights that will still draw reasonably well.

    Nah, he's just one of those old dudes who can pretty much do and say whatever the fuck he wants and get away with it.

    He's Hendo, bro.

    it hard to tell. Hendo has been fighting elite fighters so is it that he is fighting elite fighters so he loses or is it because he is not elite? If he loses to Mousasi then it's fair to say he's done as a serious contender.

    Whereas Vitor and Cormier have been blasting through the competition so Hendo just happened to be their victim too.

    Jones wouldnt hesitate to adding henderson to his list of title defences, even if he said he was 50.

    The only way Dan ever sees Jon on the other side of a cage unless some fighting demonic demon possess Dan's body and he goes on a epic fight run laying waste to everything in his path, and he would still end up losing to Jon.

    There's no chance this fight will happen.
    Jones would be like a 40:1 favourite here.
