I'm really itching for this fight, crazy thing is if Lyoto and Hendo weren't shafted in the Main Event slot then we'd have two 5 round fights, and IMO Lyoto's chances in a 5 round fight with Hendo are much higher than his chances in a 3 round fight.
What makes you say that? The only time ive seen Machida in the championship rounds was against Rua, and he was awful in those rounds. He barely threw any strikes at all.
Luckily, Hendo gasses after 45 seconds...
