Yea, I agree. Hendo is obviously better at this stage. A lot better. And he will throw that right over and over in exchanges.
But if Machida doesn't engage much, there is no place for that H-Bomb to land. If he plays the keep away game for 2 rounds it will be Hendo walking around the cage after him with his hand cocked.
Hendo wouldn't be wise to come out guns blazing. He really needs to be the counter puncher. But Machida is that way as well. He will out time you and like Hendo. If Machida isn't in the pocket, Hendo will just wait it out.
