Don't know if it goes the distance or if Hendo gets stopped but no matter what, the Dragon will leave Las Vegas with a decisive and dominant victory.
I'm thinking the exact same thing. Hendo has heart as a main weapon, but technical/smart fighters (especially the top ranked ones with few holes in their games such as machida) seem to be his achille's heel
I actually think Machida is a worst matchup for him than Jones is because Jones still seems to be somewhat emotional, while Machida is more cool and calculated.
I'd be very surprised if hendo wins this one.
