Anyone following him as of late knows that's not true. He's more refined, and he's added the front kick very effectively lately. Caught dan with 2 of them tonight, and KO'd Couture with it.

Machida is the best he's ever been, and he was pretty good with Jones the first time. Plus I think Jones is slightly overrated. But we'll find out soon enough.

In your opinion then, what has he added or changed in his game that would make a rematch with Jones end up any different than the first time?

It's possible that I'm missing something so I'd like to know what you see.

I really would have like too seen hendo fight jones for the title I know hendo is a one trick pony with the H-Bomb but when I watched the rashad evans fight the only significant strikes I saw him land on Jones were almost all overhand rights and Just like when I saw him kick machida in the leg and expose his weakness for Rua I remember thinking If Hendo gets inside and lands one overhand right it would put bones on his ass.

but sadly we wont get to see it now.

Its sad that that inside leg kick made probably meant that was the most versatile Dan's striking has been in years.

His legs can't even get over his waist. He has midget legs. He was hopping around kicking because he was desperate to do anything to Machida as he ran away. Dan doesn't have Jones's length.

They listed both at 6'1 yet Hendo was 2 inches shorter when they met in the middle.

I agree, they really dropped the ball on this one. Hendo earned his shot and should have be given Jones. Too bad.

Awful. Ridiculous. Gah. This is just my opinion but I thought that this was one of the worst fights I've ever seen. I rarely ever get annoyed while watching a fight but Machida was so goddamn frustrating to watch tonight and anyone who is saying his performance was "brilliant" is out of their damn mind. Machida was far from impressive tonight and I've lost faith in him as the man to beat Jon Jones. He would get destroyed, again. I think Gustafsson and Teixeira would beat him as well. Henderson did some ridiculous stuff also and doesn't deserve any credit what so ever.

For the record, I scored the fight 29-28 (first and third rounds) Henderson but I thought it was far from a robbery. Neither combatant did anything to deserve a win in my opinion and Gus/Mousasi should be in line for the next shot, not one of these guys.

What was even more absurd is that you could tell from the get go that Machida was the superior fighter. He just flat out refused to engage. He could have easily cruised to a 30-27 win against Henderson. He also desperately needs to learn to use his karate to generate offense instead of avoiding engaging. I thought his fight against Bader was brilliant. But this Machida was far from impressive.

I'm big fans of both of these guys but after this I'm very disappointed.

Machida would Ko Glover. Or hit him a lot for 3 rounds. Gusta would have troubles due to Machidas speed
