It's not that his striking is that much worse than Lyoto's, or that Lyoto's is that better than the other fighters Hendo has faced- its' that Lyoto's striking/timing/movement is so much different than those other guys.
It's been said plenty, but I'll say it again: it's got to be tough finding a guy to train with who can effectively emulate what Lyoto does in the Octagon.
I'm predicting Hendo to get wrecked by Lyoto, and I suspect it's gonna' look a lot like the Bader fight in terms of speed, technique,and outcome:
Hendo will be damaged by a shot he doesn't see/expect, and he won't recover.
TKO victory for Lyoto here.
