He looked sharp and nimble against Couture and Bader. No disrespect to them, but these guys are not ko artists and both have suspect stand up and chins. He looked good against Jones in the first round, I will give him that; but once Jones took a good shot from him and decided to stand and throw when Machida darted in, he clipped him good.
Machida just does not have the power to make a guy like Hendo, Rampage or Shogun respect him. Plus he knows his chin is average at best. Trust me he will be timid out there with Hendo.
