I'm surprised Henderson's camp is complaining about the fight being 3 rounds rather than 5 rounds. Honestly I thought they would be overjoyed because Henderson's cardio is subpar.

Who wouldn't want to see the championship fight of a 3 person division. Three!! And afterwards we can all sit around and try to figure out who the winner will fight next. The drama...the suspense!

I realize you can make the argument that you have to start somewhere, and they can't build up the women's div without some exposure, but lets be honest, he has a valid point here. Frankly I'm shocked that Dana is willing to do this without being certain of the future of women's MMA.

I love Hendo, but he and his team need to concentrate on getting him through a camp without getting injured, not any of the other bullshit they've been bitching about. Rousey's fighting for the belt, and title fights headline cards. Hendo vs Machida is an awesome fight, but it's not for the belt, Rousey vs Carmouche is. They need to get over it.

Title fights have to main event over non-title fights, that's obvious. My personal gripe is that they put Ronda on this card in the first place; they should have put this on a free card like FX or something like they do with the men's lighter divisions sometimes (FlyW title coming up on FOX next month).

Well, as ppl has already said, Ronda has the belt and thus she earns the right to be casted in the main event. I just have to support that.
That being said, I am curious to see if when the time comes, Bruce Buffer will spare the "This is the moment you all have been waiting for..."

Bah, championship fights headline, and that's that ... and if you are a UFC fan that likes all out action with no 'feeling out' periods, the women usually deliver that kind of fight far more often than the men (of course this will probably be another 1st minute arm bar anyway, but that's beside the point, as we still have Silva, GSP, and Jones headline cards when they fight 'bums'.)

I doubt that Hendo could last 5 rounds anyway, and if he did it would just be because The Dragon figured he could vastly out point Hendo leaning back and counter-striking ... if any of Hendo's bombs come within two football fields of Machida'a chin he can claim to have had a good fight.

I was talking about this with some people this morning. IMO Hendo's camp should be happy this is a 3 rounder and not a 5 rounder. In the 5 round fight vs Shogun he almost lost the fight because of rounds 4 and 5 and I doubt he will have any better cardio this time around. His advantages will clearly be early in the fight. So while I understand them bitching about not getting the headline with their name in the title, it's still a blessing in disguise IMO for Hendo.

Typical sexist attitude.

As if the first womens title fight in UFC history would not warrant a main event. Hendos crew consider this less significant then then his fight with Machida?

Feck off the lot of you. I cant wait for Machida to pick Hendo apart well before a single round is up.

it is less significant than Hendo - Machida. Simply because there isn't even a full freaking women's division yet, versus an important fight in - perhaps - the most important division in the UFC.

Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler
