Silva-HendersonIf you read our predictions for UFC 82, Anderson Silva “The Spider” will face Dan Henderson “Hendo” , you would see we predicted Silva would win vs. Henderson. The prediction was 100% correct.

UFC 82: Anderson Silva vs. Dan Henderson

ROUND 1:

1st minute was feeling each other out, followed by a take down by Henderson, which put Silva on his back but in a half guard. Henderson unloaded some punches to the head of Silva but the champion held on tight. Henderson held Silva’s head down and came down with a big elbow. From here, Dan moved to side control and shortly followed Anderson Silva had Hendo back in the full guard.

round 1: 10-9 ( Dan Henderson )

ROUND 2:

Anderson Silva lands a good kick and gets on top of Dan Henderson early in the round. Henderson pushes back to his feet and goes into a strong clinch with Silva against the cage. Henderson throws a short right hand but is completely outclassed by the speed of Anderson Silva. Anderson Silva lands a punch and knee in great speed! Dan Henderson goes for a take down but Silva stuffs it and takes a half guard mount from the top. 1 minute left in the round, and the crowd is wild. Henderson rolls to his stomach, exposing his back to Silva. Silva punches hard, then puts on a rear naked choke on Henderson. Dan Henderson taps out at 4:52 in the 2nd round.

UFC 82: Anderson Silva “The Spider” will face Dan Henderson “Hendo”: winner Anderson Silva “The Spider” Submission (rear naked choke) @ 4:52 in round 2.  Retains his UFC middle weight title.

Side commentary.  Henderson was put to shame by Silva, it’s just not a match.  Like we said in our last blog post, anabolic steroids probably played a role in  Dan Henderson’s life in Japan but defenately not in Anderson Silva’s in USA.  We gave a 70% chance of Anderson Silva “The Spider” retaining his UFC middle weight title, and we were right. Steroids or not, at least Henderson showed up! haha

Andrei Arlovski vs. Jake O’BrienAndrei Arlovski, who’s not really known for super exciting fights, came out swinging against Jake O’Brien at UFC 82. This being Arlovski’s last fight before he moves to EliteXC or M-1, he wanted to show UFC what they are missing. He did just that!

ROUND 1:

Andrei Arlovski stuffed all 3 takedowns from Jake O’Brien, but was taken down the fourth time. O’Brien getting the top position, but Arlovski not just sitting there, working O’Brien heavy with punches and elbows. Andrei Arlovski opens a cut on Jake O’Brien’s head in round 1.

Round 1 score: 10-9 ( Andrei Arlovski )

ROUND 2:

Again, O’Brien goes into the takedown mode. One takdown goes in, after many failed, but Arlovski gets up quickly and does a body-lock takedown directly to the mount. From the mount, Arlovski Ground-and-pounds (GnPs) O’Brien into a TKO, referee stoppage at 4:17 round 2 (TKO).

Andrei Arlovski vs. Jake O’Brien @ UFC82: winner Andrei Arlovski by TKO (punches) round 2

This is, of course the iSteroids blog, so we need to mention a bit about steroids right.   Does Andrei Arlovski use steroids? probably not in the UFC since they test heavy, but it’s likely he’s a heavy user of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) just like Randy Couture.

Silva-HendersonUFC 82 is going to be one hell of an even for all your UFC vs. PRIDE lovers. Anderson Silva “The Spider” will face Dan Henderson “Hendo” for the UFC middle weight title. There does seem to be confusion as to what this fight represents for the MMA fans. 1) Both Silva and Henderson are past PRIDE fighters who came to UFC, so this is NOT a UFC vs. PRIDE match 2) Dan Henderson is the more likely candidate for steroid use between the 2 individuals. Why? That’s because he competed in Japan just until 2007, and in Japan drugs and steroids are common place in MMA and other sports. On the other hand, Silva has been fighting in USA since 2006, with a 5-0 UFC record — and in USA the testing for anabolic steroids is extensive, especially for champions.

Who is more likely to use steroids? IS prediction:

Anderson Silva “The Spider” – 10%
Dan Henderson “Hendo” – 90%

Who will will the UFC Middleweight title at UFC 82? IS prediction:

Anderson Silva “The Spider” – 70% (remain champion)
Dan Henderson “Hendo” -30% (win the championship from Silva)

If we were betting $ on the UFC82, Anderson Silva “The Spider” would be the logical choice.
