"I'm a big Hendo fan. I picked him [against Fedor] even though I didn't think he was really going to win, but it was a pleasant surprise. I would love to fight him. He's getting better and better -- not so much learning new techniques, but having a stronger competitive mentality."

Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans versus current Strikeforce Light Heavyweight Champion Dan Henderson? Sounds good to "Suga," who told mixed martial arts fans on today's ESPN chat that he would "love to fight him" at some point in the not-too-distant future. While a tantalizing fantasy fight, "Hendo," who is fresh off a spectacular first round knockout over fading Russian "Emperor" Fedor Emelianenko, is still without contract after his big win last Saturday night (July 30) in the outskirts of Chicago. But even if he found his way back to the Octagon, would Evans vs. Henderson make sense from a matchmaking standpoint? Or does Rashad have unfinished business with Jon Jones first? And are we overlooking Tito Ortiz? Let's hear your take on this fantasy fight, Maniacs.
