Well Said... Personally I think Machida retires Hendo. The dude is 42 years old and he is going to get KTFO. Hendo is just to old and slow and small.

...This fight has the potential to be brutally explosive. If Dan can cover Machida's distance and land that right hand, Lyoto might get finished. If not, I see Lyoto landing the more significant, cleaner shots perhaps rocking Dan a bit. I don't see Hendo getting knocked out. This should go the distance with Machida getting the nod...

I see Machida quite easily picking Dan apart. Dan is too old now and he's gotten by beating other washed up fighters like Shogun and Fedor, but Machida will expose his #1 ranking and possibly retire him a la Couture.

Machida got knocked the **** out by Shogun though in a couple of minutes.

I hope you really don't mean Rampage outclassed Machida in anyway in that fight. Machida lost to Rampage exclusively due to his excessive counter waiting (the boring style he was famous for), what made Rampage to look for the fight more often, thus being considered the aggressor. That's all. On the third Machida was more effective and even Rampage thought Machida won the fight, offering him an instant rematch.

I didn't say anything of the sort.

Regardless, he lost.

It was obviously a close fight, but Machida looked anything but impressive.

Machida has beat Shogun.

Not taking anything away from Dan, great fight but Shogun in terms of technical ability is vastly superior than him but he brawled and then he got mauled until Dan gassed, Fedor got careless going for the kill and Hendo snuck in with an H-bomb. The chances of Machida getting careless are far less and that makes this a more difficult fight for Dan because Machida won't play into his hands unless Machida believes he can finish him, Dan would probably be wise to fake being rocked and try to lure him in and take advantage because if Machida fights smart he should cruise.

Only technically. Most still believe he lost their first fight.

Henderson is probably going to get submitted. History has shown that even best strikers should not sleep on Dan and try to contest the fight standing, wanderlei, fedor, fejiao, Bisping and shogun are all very good strikers and they all got put on their ass. However Dan has shown a lack of defensive wrestling lately and has never had good jitz. Machida by sub.

there's always an excuse for why dan won a fight but there's never an excuse in his favor for why he lost like when he fought shields with a destroyed back and gassed quickly yet everyone just says dan sucks and got outgrappled blah blah blah, fact is it doesn't matter how quick you think you are because dans right isn't a missile it's a heat seeking nuclear bomb that even the toughest targets have been hit by, if this was 5 rounds lyoto would have a greater chance but because it isn't dan all the way.
