Default Henderson's best wins

So, here's a list of Hendo's 5 best wins imo. Rank them in order and maybe explain why you see it that way

Fedor Emeilianenko - TKO 1. Win against the GOAT HW former number 1

Rafa Cavalcante - TKO 3 Becomes the 1st 3 weight world champion in a major Org

Wanderlei Silver - TKO 3 Become the 1st, and only man to hold two belts in different weight classes at the same time, in any org.

Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira - Dec Spilit - Earns a decision against the future PRIDE HW Champ and ATG

Murilo Bustamante - Decision Split. Wins Pride WW Final and becomes the WW Champion

So how do you rank these. Any you think are better?

And

You have to take sick excuses with a grain of salt because fighters and their camps have attempted to explain away losses since the days of bareknuckle and most of the time it's bullshit. In my opinion he lost because he was clearly already on the downslide and Hendo was far better than the first time they met.

Impressive Kod or not, if you are ranking a win against Bisping over any of these, then, well I best not say anything because it wont be nice

By all accounts he should not have won the 1st Nog fight, but I haven't seen it so am not sure.

Anyone care to elaborate as to how much kudos Hendo deserves for this win? Of course, winning the tournament itself was an impressive feat for a small guy.

Hendo is nails

I think Dan did better in the 2nd fight as opposed the 1st, but judge for yourself

He won the Rings tourney too, probably a better achievement considering the field that day, Big Nog, Babalu and Gilbert on the same nite IIRC

And he also won the PRIDE WWGP too. Dudes done it all, except get a UFC strap

One hell of a resume.
Babalu, Renzo and Newton are all solid B-C level wins as well

It's up there with the most important, but it's hard to call it the best given the last two rounds. Fedor or Wand would still be the best, given that they were definitive and brutal.

If I had to rank a top 10 in order they'd be something like this

Wandy 2
Big Nog
Fedor
Rafa - For the belt, obviously one of the lesser Champs he's beaten
Babalu 1 - 3rd fight of the night, wins the RINGS tourny
Shogun
Vitor
Franklin
Newton - For the UFC 17 title
Ninja/Renzo/ Yvel/Bisping - take your pick

Anyone agree or disagree?
