Hendo v Shogun II.. irrelevant?

Hendo v Shogun II.. irrelevant? Empty Hendo v Shogun II.. irrelevant?

This weekend we've got Shogun v. Hendo II.

Hendo can't be long for the UFC, what with the TRT issue and his patchy record of late. Shogun revived interest with that KO of Te Huna, but can anyone really see him making a sustained run at the belt?

I can't see anything to get excited about here.

The rest of the card is fair to middling, nothing to get excited about, especially not the week after the Hendricks / Lawler bout.

Are the UFC putting on too many "nothing" cards? Quantity over quality?

Will be a decent fight but win or lose for either it will have little to no impact on the division or their respective careers for that matter. They are both coming to the end of their careers & will just be viewed as gatekeepers until a string of loses sees them finally cut or retire.

Is it the headline fight of the card, who else is on? The UFC are funny in that they stack cards & then have a few 'nothing' cards, might be better not to stack them to full & spread it out a bit.

Yeah, what's up after Hendo v Shogun? Is it Big Country against... someone? In Abu Dhabi? Another nothing headlining fight on a nothing card.

Then there's Bisping v. Kennedy, which is still a relevant fight in the MW division, I guess.

Was actually a pretty good fight in the end. Henderson's ability to recover is outstanding.

Also, loving Maldonado too.

Only seen the end of the fight, but what an end! The H-bomb landing flush on Shogun's nose. I understand he's having surgery on it this week.

Be interesting to see what Hendo does next, given he's got to transition off the TRT.

Henderson is looking old in his movements and also the granite chin is fading slightly.

In saying that, he can still take a punch better than most, recovers well and has the power to trouble anyone.

He would have to win two big fights to be considered for a title shot but I can't see him beating the Top 5 guys.

I would give him big fights against big names but not contenders to earn him his retirement fund. Hendo vs Franklyn would be good.

No chance he beats Cormier, Gusto, Teixera or Evans.
