Dan Henderson vs Fedor Emelianenko
By Terry Hunt
Man sometimes I miss the cold war.
Not since Rocky Balboa meets Ivan Drago has there been a more anticipated East vs West match-up, at least not not for me. Can’t think of any others really. Much has already been said about how these two are past their primes. That may (keyword) be true but they are not very far past it. This fight is going to thrill. If you have ever watched either of these two men fight then odds are you have seen devastating one shot knockouts. This fight will not, can not, go the distance. These men are dangerous and swing to finish fights. If it does go the distance I’ll print out this article and eat it. Maybe.
Prediction: This is tough but I just can’t bet against Rocky. Fedor has to cut weight for this which will not be in his favor (not much of a distinction but it’s all I got).
Winner – Dan Henderson. KO. Round 2.
