He couldn't close the range on the longer/faster fighter and was totally shut down.

Yes, Dan landed leg kicks, it's well documented that if you get Machida to back up you can catch his legs. Shogun proved that much in their first fight, but that was pretty much all Dan had. Machida landed the front kick several times, he used the front kick to punch combo he dropped Rashad with, landed a nice body kick and got that takedown in the first. It was a master class in Machida karate.

I'm sorry you're upset that Hendo lost and looked miserable doing it. Lyoto exposed what we all have learned about Henderson, he's got nothing besides his right hand. If you avoid the right then you negate his entire game.
he actually landed the right hand twice to machida, 1 time in the first hard and one in the 2nd not as hard but still decent, that and he landed more body shots and way more leg kicks that bruised lyotos leg and finally the round 3 top control means he did a lot more than machida, machida didn't land any kicks like joe would have you believe he landed only a few punches to the head standing and 2 on the ground.

I hate to say this but I agree with OWNS. I thought Hendo won that fight. Most of the strikes they say landed on Hendo simply weren't landing with any kind of impact or necessarily at all. Several of the knees to the body didn't land at all. It was just a shit fight.

Easily the most disappointing fight I've seen in a long time. Machida will go on to lose to Jones again and Hendo will hopefully fight someone who doesn't dart to the other side of the cage whenever he tries to engage with him.

I wanted to see Jones vs. Hendo as well, so something added to the disappointment.

This fight sucked, expected a lot more action. However Machida easily won that, Henderson had nothing look frustrated more than anything. He had his moments, but did nothing. Machida did exactly what Machida does, and Henderson stood there and watched for the majority of the fight.

Maybe DW will live up to his threat of getting rid of boring fighters and give the title shot to Hendo anyways.

I hope Machida does not get a title fight after this showing.

I don't blame him for his strategy, it was obvious that he could not hurt Hendo and that he could play tag all day long, but still. He can "win" most of his fights by getting on his bike and tagging someone 10 times in a fight while getting tagged only 4 or 5 himself; it requires skill to do be as elusive as he can be, but that does not sell tickets.
