Thought I commented on here already. Oh it was on the Ronda/Carmouche card thread. I'd like to see Machida by KO. I'm very curious to see if Hendo can be knocked out. He withstood Wanderlei in his prime, Vitor, Shogun, Rampage, Gilbert Yvel, Fedor of all people, and Anderson Silva. He's absorbed em all and he's still smiling. If there's a guy who has a virtually impregnable chin it would be Hendo's. I'd like to see him take a full on Mirko LHK. If he takes it without falling...I'll be certain he's a mutant.

Lyoto 30-27 by avoiding the H-Bomb or tko late in the third if Hendo gasses after chasing him around for 2.5 rounds.

Wow, way too much Hendo hate. He is clearly the favorite in this fight.

I hope Henderson wins but I gotta bet on Machida. I think this is a bad stylistic match up for Henderson and I see Machida frustrating him on the outside avoiding Hendo's bombs and take down attempts. Hopefully I'm wrong because I still want to see Hendo take on Jones.

Clearly?

He hasn't fought since November 2011.
He's coming off an injury.
Machida is widely regarded as a stylistic nightmare for wrestlers.
Machida is much quicker, more diverse, and has way more ways to win this fight, he could win by decision, submission, and possibly a late TKO.
And the only time Dan has ever been finished was by the Nogueira Brothers and Anderson. All three have trained with Machida in the past and Machida is friends with all of them so he's probably got some insight from them.

Hendo isn't really a wrestler, or he doesn't fight like one anyways.
One of these men has been knocked out before. The other one never has. Machida can't submit Henderson. So he only has 1 way to win, by decision. I don't see him avoiding the big shot for 3 rounds and I don't see how Machida can be the favorite here. Especially how some people are describing it. I don't see it at all. Hendo is rarely the faster fighter in any of his fights. Nothing new there. Can Machida dance around long enough, that's the real question. Because thinking he can finish this fight is wishful thinking that cannot be supported by anything we have seen in the past. Nothing suggest he can finish Dan, nothing.

Machida has worked extensively with Roger Gracie ever since losing to Jones and his ground game is better than Hendo's. So he can indeed submit him, he's not afraid to go for subs as he's shown against Rampage and Sokodjou and if Dan doesn't connect him he will turn into a wrestler trying to hold him against the fence or take him down. Otherwise he gasses and he's easy for Machida to tee off on.

Hendo is riding a nice streak but they are all against people willing to brawl with him. I highly doubt Machida goes shot for shot with Hendo. His style has a very high potential to make Hendos striking look foolish.
