Any "significant strikes" or other judging criteria on that website is entirely subjective and opinionated. How exactly are they measuring the significant strikes? It's their subjective opinion.

How ever, it is good to measure which fighter landed the more strikes, and that fighter was clearly Dan Henderson.

Now in my opinion, those leg kicks Dan landed were the most significant and clean strikes of the entire fight, but I highly doubt fight metric would have listed them as significant strikes.

It was a terrible performance from both men, but I still think Dan Henderson deserved to get the nod at the end.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ I agree

I don't remember who it was that said it, (maybe rogan) but someone said Henderson should wait for machida to engage, then counter him. Lol that would've been a long wait. Would've been 3 rounds of feints.

If Machida didnt land that late ass takedown in Rnd 1, Hendo would've won on the judges cards. Im a huge Hendo nuthugger and prayed that the judges rob Machida, but Machida gets the nod. The winner: No one, the Loser; Fans.

We all know that unless your name is Aldo, you're not going to get much credit for leg kicks; and Dan Henderson is most definitely not Jose Also. And since the majority the strikes that Dan actually landed were those kicks...

Neither fighter dominated the other, but of the limited output we saw, Machida simply landed the better, more damaging techniques.

Again IMO, Dan needs to get off the juice and retire: he's never winning a title, and despite the fact I think he is a more natural MW, it's obvious he can't make that weight anymore. He has nothing left to prove.

Lyoto isn't beating Jones, and I doubt Jones is straying from LHW anytime soon. Lyoto should drop to MW and take some fights down there. AS can't fight forever.

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!
Forgot the knees, those were incredible-I watched them over and over in slo mo To land a knee flush like that timed off a great wrestlers shot takes some wicked reflexes.

I was really surprised how well Hendo took those knees. Machida is an absolute master of landing them hard and fast. I thought before the fight that Dan would of been dropped by one and finished.

I enjoyed the fight. I understand why people might not like Lyotos style, but man, he does things the others cant. It's not about quantity with Machida but quality. Some of the shots he hit Hendo with we're magnificent.

He fought exactly as I expected him to.

EDIT.

You think those pathetic leg kicks we're more significant then Lyotos counters?

... and lol at people calling Hendos leg kicks more significant then Lyotos magnificent counter knees.

That the Hendo fans have got nothing to clutch onto - in terms of offence from Henderson - other then leg kicks?... also lol.

Hendo is a hardcore motherfecker... I'll give him that.

2 hard hooks hendo landed to machida's face too as well, machida's knees were weak that's why hendo didn't even flinch and the best strike machida did was one leg kick that buckled dan a bit.
