The marquee fights here are Henderson vs. Rua and Mauricio Rua.

Chuck Mindenhall of ESPN.com attempted to answer two questions coming into Saturday night’s UFC 139 related to both matchups.

Q: Will Henderson neutralize Rua's striking by using his wrestling?

A: There's a defiance to Henderson that is admirable. When he fought Silva at UFC 82, he didn't want to pound him out for five rounds -- he wanted to knock him out in the second. When Redor Emelianenko came in winging bombs, Hendo stood in the pocket, dropped his chin and fired back. Against his Pride fraternity brother Rua, there's no way he'll balk at exchanges. But at the same time, he'll look for takedowns and whatever Rua gives. He isn't particularly finicky.

Q: Should he lose, is this it for Wanderlei Silva?

A: It's a real possibility, but if you've talked to Silva you know that fighting is his raison d'etre -- the thought of not having it spooks him. This is a winnable fight for Silva, but it's also a near certainty that both he and Cung Le will be headhunting and odds are it doesn't make it past the first round. If Silva is on the wrong end of an exchange -- and once you've developed a button, it doesn't magically go away -- if it's not the end of his MMA career, it'll be the last of his time in the UFC. A lot riding on this for Silva.
