The chances of Machida getting careless are far less and that makes this a more difficult fight for Dan because Machida won't play into his hands unless Machida believes he can finish him, Dan would probably be wise to fake being rocked and try to lure him in and take advantage because if Machida fights smart he should cruise.

there's always an excuse for why dan won a fight but there's never an excuse in his favor for why he lost like when he fought shields with a destroyed back and gassed quickly yet everyone just says dan sucks and got outgrappled blah blah blah, fact is it doesn't matter how quick you think you are because dans right isn't a missile it's a heat seeking nuclear bomb that even the toughest targets have been hit by, if this was 5 rounds lyoto would have a greater chance but because it isn't dan all the way.
