Hendo didnt flinch because he never does. If that's how we judge fights then Hendo would be unbeatable. Doesn't mean the blows we're weak. Just that Hendo is a tough fecker.

Those knees we're awesome. Not just the knees but many of the counters. To not accept that is just hating.

Plenty of people have stumbled and rocked Hendo. Fedor blasted him with punches and almost KO'd him in their fight. Shogun had him on rubber legs in the fourth. Anderson dropped him with strikes, Wanderlei Silva in their first fight in pride, he was knocking Hendo over for fun with strikes. He's got great recovery, but he certainly isn't unflinchable.

None of Machidas strikes seemed to have any impact on Hendo what so ever. That's because most of his shots were grazing ones because he wasn't properly in range and because he wasn't fully committing to the majority of his strikes.

Whatever dudes. If you cant appreciate the work of a unique and very skilled martial artist, then there's nothing I can say that'll make any difference.

Give me Machida any day over Hendo and his rubbish style. I'm not going to root for a twat who has got so far purely on an absurd chin and a big right. I may as well watch Roy Nelson.

Roy Nelson has a real nice BJJ game. Hendo a decade ago when he was 32 had a nice Greco game. Both are awesome, but that was a terrible comparison.

Take your goofy Machida style and shove it up your ass.

I haven't seen a "real nice BJJ game" manifest as a sub win from Nelson in years; I have seen a fat kid winging shots as he relies on his beard (literally) to get him through.

Hendo did the same in this fight: flailing away with an overhand right that was set up with F-all, and telegraphed from another zip code.

I get that you admire and are entertained by the way they fight, but Sooj's comparison was appropriate.

I don't think anybody here is saying Ronda Rousey sucked. They're talking about Machida. The guy who ran for three rounds and landed approximately jack and shit with any power on it because it's hard to land when you're constantly moving backwards.

And those knees you mentioned? They didn't land with the knee. They landed with the meat of his thigh. Go watch it again and you'll realize his great skillful counters didn't land.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Can't win an argument so ask to be ignored. Classy. Well back you go. Enjoy believing utter nonsense about Machida.
