Howdy! Just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

Here's the problem Hendo is virtually invincible.

This similar kick hurt Rashad and dropped Rich Franklin.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B. Similar crane kick knocked out Randy.

Exhibit C. Knee that dropped Tito.

This fight didn't "seem exciting" because Machida couldn't hurt em and of course Hendo couldn't reach em. I actually thought Machida could hurt Hendo. Apparently not. After doing some thinking Hendo has literally came out on top vs anybody who's ever tried to stand and bang with em.

- Wanderlei
- Fedor
- Calvacante
- Vitor
- Bisping
- Shogun (he's one of the few who withstood an h-bomb)

Only one person was able to finish em in recent history.
