We all know that unless your name is Aldo, you're not going to get much credit for leg kicks; and Dan Henderson is most definitely not Jose Also. And since the majority the strikes that Dan actually landed were those kicks...
Neither fighter dominated the other, but of the limited output we saw, Machida simply landed the better, more damaging techniques.
Again IMO, Dan needs to get off the juice and retire: he's never winning a title, and despite the fact I think he is a more natural MW, it's obvious he can't make that weight anymore. He has nothing left to prove.
Lyoto isn't beating Jones, and I doubt Jones is straying from LHW anytime soon. Lyoto should drop to MW and take some fights down there. AS can't fight forever.
