This is most likely going to be a stand up fight and I can't remember the last time Hendo didn't land a flush H-bomb onto his opponents chin. Machidas chin also hasn't proven to be great. He got clocked by Shogun and clocked by Jones (who isn't even really known for punching power).
It doesn't matter how he did it, but it is refreshing to know he can take them down, and he's also got some sneaky trips.

When Machida fought reckless? Back then Shogun threw punches and kicks, all Henderson is gonna do is go for his overhand right. He's also not as fast as Shogun was back then.
