He would be the biggerst star right now if he had a little more marketing. He would be a huge headliner. He has represented the US in 2 Olympics in wrestling, had 2 belts at the same time in Pride. Thats really hard. That was at the time where I had to agree that the better fighters were in Pride eventhough I am a loyal UFC PPV buyer for the last 50.
He only lost in the UFC in a close decision to rampage, lost to silva(everyone does), beat the ufc teachers pet rich franklin and embarrassed the count.
He deserves silva, not marquardt.
He can fight at two weight classes. that is very valuable to the UFC. Just remember the time he came in the ring with both belts from pride around his shoulders. MARKET THIS GUY BETTER!
Watch hendo vs. wanderlei silva from pride.hendo vs. vitor, hendo vs okami. Hendo could lay down and wrestle everyone like boring matt hughes does, even brock held down frank mir like he was his little brother and kept puching with the same hand. HENDO WILL STAND AND TRADE PUNCHES. He has a granite chin, never been knocked out.
He is the biggest talent, give him the biggest fights, he's 39 years old. the time is now, he wont embarrass you dana white by getting caught with steriods, getting chased by cops, appearing on a texas morning show slurring his words or leaving to play BA Baracus.Sign Hendo and let him fight silva, tito, vitor, wanderlei, forrest , whoever. he is a bigger star than people realize.
