Haven't seen either fight in a while.
Lindland by a hair. Their fight could have gone either way while Jackson/Hendo was pretty obviously 3 rounds (at least) to 2.

I thought Henderson deserved the nod in their fight, and thought Rampage deserved the win over Lindland. Both fights were super-close, though.
Usually when somebody asks there toughest fights. They mean the Toughest fight that he/she won.

LOL. I guess Wand and Shogun were walks in the park for him.
I don't think he remembers his ChuteBoxe wars.

Good question. I haven't seen the Lindland one forever
I will say this-- Rampage today [with Juanito training him] is a completely different fighter than at the end of his Pride run
Not sure if he quite found his stride again during that WFA event, I think he's a whole different fighter mentally now and in terms of his team/training/coaching
FWIW, the Lindland fight was only 3 rounds and Hendo's was 5-- not sure if Rampage could have grinded out another 2 rounds back then, obviously his conditioning is better now
Too close to call, both were Great fights and Rampage had to work his fucking ass of to get the wins.
Lindland, Henderson & Couture do good against bigger opponents. All 3 of them are Animals!!
