One problem for Machida, I don't think he has the one-shot KO power to put Hendo in trouble, and if Hendo recognizes that and fights accordingly it's going to be a lot closer than most people think. Machida needs to play it smart and stay the hell away from the fence, which he should be able to do with his speed and footwork. If he gets careless and caught against the fence, he's going to be eating a ton of big punches. He doesn't have Shogun's toughness and ability to soak up damage so if that happens he's going to be in a ton of trouble.
