Henderson via UD.
People tend to remember what they last saw. People get all giddy every fight and change their minds on things based on what last happened.
Machida KO'd Ryan Bader in spectacular fashion. A Ryan Bader that has nothing to offer.
Hendo has been out for a while, and they last remember Hendo getting beat on while gassed out in the 4th and 5th rounds.
So they do the math and think Machida will destroy Hendo. Hendo was hit and survived 3 harder punchers than Machida. Not as precise but harder punchers. So not sure why everyone is expecting some sort of spectacular KO from Machida.
But hey, it could happen. I suppose you could say Hendo is "due" to get KO'd. Lol.
