Hendo vs Machida now unlikely for UFC 156
 
Quote:

Dan Henderson said last week on MMA Uncensored Live that his light heavyweight bout with Lyoto Machida was penciled in for UFC 156 on February 2nd. But that may have been a bit premature. On Fuel TV's UFC Tonight, it was reported that the UFC doesn't feel comfortable booking the fight for that card right now due to lingering questions about Henderson's recovery from a knee injury.

As soon as they announced Overeem/Bigfoot I figured these reports would begin to come out. I'm all for stacking cards but Aldo/Edgar, Machida/Hendo, Reem/Bigfoot, and Shad/Lil' Nog? Too good to be true.

Machida/Hendo, Koscheck/Diaz, and Fitch/Maia should be the top three fights for 157.

I bet they still add another nice fight, maybe even 2 to the Super Bowl card.

Faber's supposed to be fighting on it but the only problem with Faber is he's been clowned by Cruz and Barao but he's still top five and the only guy that would be a reasonable match up for is Mayday, who I personally think starches him.

Erick Silva's also fighting on there but no opponent announced, hope it's Heiron that's a stern test for him at this stage of his career.

I had my doubts about Hendo being ready to fight so soon.
