Sorry guys, but Lyoto took Dan to school,
should have been a 30-27 ud.

We watched different fights then. Hendo won rounds 2 and 3. I don't know how anyone can score a round for the guy moving backwards and not landing anything.

Howdy! Just thought I'd add my 2 cents.

Here's the problem Hendo is virtually invincible.

This similar kick hurt Rashad and dropped Rich Franklin.

Exhibit A.

Exhibit B. Similar crane kick knocked out Randy.

Exhibit C. Knee that dropped Tito.

UFC_Lyoto vs Hendo_v3.jpg

This fight didn't "seem exciting" because Machida couldn't hurt em and of course Hendo couldn't reach em. I actually thought Machida could hurt Hendo. Apparently not. After doing some thinking Hendo has literally came out on top vs anybody who's ever tried to stand and bang with em.

- Wanderlei
- Fedor
- Calvacante
- Vitor
- Bisping
- Shogun (he's one of the few who withstood an h-bomb)

Only one person was able to finish em in recent history.

rd 2 was the most clear round of the fight,
you could dig deep and find an argument for Dan to take 1 and 3, but 2 was all Lyoto.

Hendo definitely should have been given the decision, but Machida would have destroyed him if they actually fought... so I guess I'm not too upset.

Machida won hands down. Dan only landed maybe 6 shots the entire fight.

Indeed. For all the criticism on Lyoto for not engaging or hitting Henderson, Henderson actually landed even less. He fell into top position and landed less signficant shots in a minute than Lyoto did with 5 seconds of GNP, won from a clean trip.

You can say all you want about 'aggression' but ring control and aggression is secondary in judges eyes to actually landing shots and effectively using techniques.

Nope, Henderson massively out landed Machida:

As I said earlier, Hendo's leg kicks were the most significant and clean strikes of the fight. Apparently baby leg kicks from Carlos Condit for five rounds can win you fights and that's fine, but powerful leg kicks where you lift your entire opponents leg up from the ground and lobster it up bad don't count.

MMA judging strikes again.

henderson's technique for throwing leg kicks is horrible and 16 landed leg kicks by henderson should never win a fight. most of hendos body shots were on the ground while machida pulled dans head close to his chest which had no leverage and no power to them. machida also slipped in the third so dan had no takedown. machida was throwing hard shots to the head and landing them, while dan was mostly missing and looked quite gooofy in doing so. hendo kept on looking for shitty inside leg kick followed by a massive over hand right throughout the entire fight, at no point did he ever decide to change things up. his only significant damage to machida was the 2 or 3 hard landed leg kicks in the 1st but thats about it
