Let's look at the facts.

- Relatively unknown outside the avid mma followers circle
- No real division



Imagine if Lombard came over from bellator and main evented a card against.. lets just say.. Herman?

Even that would have made more sense then Rhonda getting it simply because of Hectors winning streak.

The fact that its over Machida/Hendo... RETARDED.
The reason Ronda is headlining is because she has a belt, something Machida and Hendo don't have, it's pretty simple title fights should always headline and this is no different.

Hendo by KO or Machida by UD. Last time I had faith in Machida being an elusive counterstriker against a one dimensional striker he ended up losing. I see that happening again, except with a finish this time.

I can't believe some people are saying this is an easy fight for Machida.

Ronda is not fighting the #2 or 3 in her division so not much of a fight there. Hendo still has some fight left in him so Machida will have his hands full. Also,Will the rounds be the standard three 5 min rounds or five 5 min rounds? I only ask because Hendo is pretty old and he was visibly tired by the third round in his fight with Shogun. If it is 3 rounds then I say Hendo.

Man really don't want to see either of these guys lose. Machida looks good on paper here but you can never count Hendo out. Going to be an edge of your seat type fight, can't wait.

Probably a solid enough reason to make this a co-main event. Henderson knows he's not got the cardio for a 5 rounder.

Ronda should make quick work of Liz to solidify her title status, but Carmouche is fighting on her birthday week and has something to prove. She's also from Lafayette, so I'll be rooting for her to pull an upset. I'm surprised more of the hater's aren't doing the same thing since that could very well kill a lot of the buzz around Ronda and women's MMA in general.

Hendo is gonna have a rough day at the office fighting Machida. Lyoto's style will make it hard for Dan to land that hay-maker of his and once he can't find his opponent's chin his chances dwindle significantly. Of course, all it takes is him grazing you with that punch and it's mat nap time... Still, I think Lyoto takes the decision or shocks the world in round five by finishing with strikes.
