Machida for UFC 157 + his new moustache

Dan Henderson meeting Lyoto Machida at UFC 157


It looks like light heavyweights Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida finally have a date, location, and event for their long-rumored rumble. However, it doesn’t involve Super Bowl Weekend as originally expected though the pairing will still take place in February.
According to a report from TATAME, Henderson and Machida have been matched up for a meeting on February 23 at UFC 157. The fight is the first to be linked to the Anaheim bound lineup.
The bout will mark Henderson’s return to the cage after an extended layoff based on both injury and his decision to wait for a shot at divisional champion Jon Jones. He has not fought in a year (to the day as a matter of fact), picking up a decision win over Mauricio Rua to extend his current run of victories to four straight. He was set to mix it up with Jones earlier this year but suffered a knee injury and was forced out of the tilt. Despite the break from action, “Hendo” should be fine given his experience. The 29-8 Henderson has found past success against the likes of and Rich Franklin, Michael Bisping, Vitor Belfort, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and Fedor Emelianenko.
Machida was last seen stopping Ryan Bader with strikes in August. A former UFC title-holder, “The Dragon” holds an overall record of 18-3 including knockouts of Franklin, Randy Couture, Thiago Silva, and Rashad Evans.

Dat stache! 80's cops and male porn stars be jealous of the dragon and the upper lip surprise.

Machida beats Hendo to a pulp, too fast, too slick, too good. Hendo either toughs it out to get embarrassed for 25(or 15) or Machida just decides to put him out of his misery. Either way no title shot for Danny boy, and a couple of bruised ribs, cuts, a black eye and a big fat L to go on that record.

Then the next time Bones wants to try that take him down and throw elbow shit, Machida will sub that ass and the Dragon once again takes the belt back.

Also, I feel sorry for anyone that might see Machida and Anderson in a bar and try to **** with them just because their dressed up like a couple of nerds, talk about don't judge a book by it's cover...,.

This is the only one of his that I'll agree with, Hendo's overhand is way too slow for the likes of Machida. You need a solid kicker or elite takedown artist to counter Machida's style.

Hendo's toast if this happens, but for some reason I see this getting cancelled by injury.

You also need good timing to punch Machida and Hendo has excellent timing. How else would he land that overhand that everybody knows is there so many times. There is a legit chance that Hendo puts him down in the first 3 rounds.

I think Machida wins this. Hendo is really good at landing that right hand but Machida is just an awful stylistic matchup for him. Hendo will plod around and get picked apart.
