What did Hendo do again besides trying to land one punch?

Dan fought balls out like always and rushed forward showing no respect for Lyoto's power. Hes the one who tried to make a fight out of it.

Lyoto has zero chance against Jones.

Easy 29-28 Machida. Not a great fight by any means though. Lol everyone having a go Machida though. What did Dan do? Not Machida's fault Dan is too slow and one dimensional. Relies way too much on his right hand and doesnt bother with anything else except a leg kick.

Great fight ! I loved it. That's what you a technical striking display by machida ! What did dan do in that right ? Nothing he landed NOTHING! Every time he came in Kyoto ,and 2 hards and avoided all dans!

I was on the edge of my seat for the whole fight . I guess we are back to the if you can't appreciate the skill of lyoto then please don't watch him and go watch some brawlers.

As usual, where others seem to see boringness and nothing happening, I see great tactical striking and beautiful technique.

Several knees clean to the gut, plenty of counter strikes right to the chops ( masked by the fact that Hendo could eat them ), two front kicks that landed, and several body kicks that all landed home.

Hendo is clearly a man of iron, but he was regularly caught with a variety of strikes all throughout. Maybe wasn't as noticeable since he was able to run through a lot of them.

Who's face was messed up though, and who was it that had no real answer to a fighter who was connecting with him at a decent regularity ?

At most, Dan landed 2-3 decent leg strikes, and next to no head shots at all.

Total Tottenham

Supporting - Machida, Edgar, Mitrione, Pickett, Cruickshank, Wiman, Lauzon, Falcao, Belcher, Korean Zombie, Palhares, Hendricks
