He hasn't fought since November 2011.
He's coming off an injury.
Machida is widely regarded as a stylistic nightmare for wrestlers.
Machida is much quicker, more diverse, and has way more ways to win this fight, he could win by decision, submission, and possibly a late TKO.
And the only time Dan has ever been finished was by the Nogueira Brothers and Anderson. All three have trained with Machida in the past and Machida is friends with all of them so he's probably got some insight from them.
