might as well say it... even though I'm a huge Hendo fan, I scored it 29-28 for Machida.

only thing that bugged me was lyoto didnt throw many left head kicks.

Left head kicks are great offensive defense against a guy like hendo. Forces him to block with his right hand therefore he cant counter with it.

Absolutely agree. Hendo, as the closest person at the moment, should have warned Machida he should engage or he woud be placed on the ground, by him. Unfortunaly Dan didn't enforce that for some reason.

There was a lot of mutual respect in that fight...it felt like any minute something big was going to happen, but never quite did.
Highlight for me was Machida's foot sweep takedown, pulling that off in a fight situation against a top level Greco Roman wrestler like Hendo = impressive.

I was flipping my shit when he landed that sweep!!!

I dug Hendo's aggression in the first, but Machida landed the better shots. In the second, Machida was on fire. The third was obviously Henderson.

The fight wasn't thrilling by any stretch of the imagination, but it definitely had some awesome moments ala Machida's counters -- especially those knees!

To be honest I thought that Hendersons leg kicks were the most significant strikes of the entire fight. He was just BOOTING the shit out of Machida's leg lol, lifted his entire leg way up off the ground a few times and lobstered it up pretty bad.

Nothing Machida landed on Hendo seemed to have any real impact on him what so ever.

Hendo should have just kept booting Machidas legs all three rounds instead of looking for the H-bomb.

No kidding. I was going "Hendo, you idiot, keep kicking his legs goddamnit!" for most of the fight. It was landing clean nearly every single time so I have no idea why he stopped doing it.

Also, if Hendo was having that much success booting the crap out of Machida's legs, what do you think Jon Jones is gonna do to him? Machida still can't defend leg kicks and you can bet that Greg Jackson & Mike Winkeljohn will have a strategy that capitalizes on it when they start coaching Jones for the rematch.

There were no awesome moments in this fight. Go back and watch it again. Those knees weren't landing. He was hitting with the meat of his thigh not the knee. Almost all of Lyoto's shots were barely hitting or not hitting at all.

I've heard some people say that they saw great technique in that fight. Those people are wrong. There was nothing great in that fight. Lyoto has looked much, much better. This was not Lyoto being elusive or demonstrating great defensive technique. This was Lyoto flat running for 3 rounds while throwing the odd pitter patter shot. If Hendo hadn't come forward a punch wouldn't have been thrown the entire fight.

That was garbage. The only good thing to come of it is I get to see Jones destroy Machida again.

Yeah I agree. I thought that was beautiful. I was on edge this whole fight waiting for some Machida freak kick or a massive over hand right from Hendo to finish it. Shame it never happened but I still enjoyed it.
