Everytime Hendo throws the right hand (i refuse to call it the stupid ******* H-BOMB. It makes me cringe every time I hear it), Machida will either be 500 miles away, or duck in, clinch, and take him down whilst Hendo is off balance.

He has to come in sometime. Like I said every fighter Hendo faces has the speed advantage, it rarely matters.
I had no idea Hendo was so hated outside of the US.

Never said I hated Hendo.

When Machida does come in, he'll hand 1-2 punches, or a knee, then be out before Hendo can do anything.

It's not just speed. Hendo isn't fighting people as elusive as Machida. Fedor, Shogun, Feijao, they all stand in front of him. Machida's movement is going to be a big problem for Hendo.

Well if you want to go that route then Machida isn't fighting anyone that is hitting people as squarely and as hard as Hendo. Last time he did? He had to be woken up and informed of the outcome. Hendo is also a different animal. Goes both ways.

Not really.

Machida's whole game is based off making his opponents make mistakes, frustrate them and make them play his game. When they come to him that's when he takes them out, if Dan can't touch him he'll rush him and he'll eat punches all night long, they may not put him to sleep but they'll score points and he can do that all night long, with ease.

Dan is pretty patient himself. He knows all it takes is 1. I don't think Hendo is going to be as stupid as you suggest. I can't see him getting frustrated and rushing in. He won't play Machida's game. If he wants to dance around, I doubt Hendo chases him down. Machida might worry about points, Dan won't.

I want and am hoping for a Dan win, but I see Lyoto using the clinch against the fence and some handy foot work for the first two rounds to tire Dan out, then pouring it on in the third. 29-28 Lyoto.

Henderson has pretty good timing, he has landed the H-B....his right hand over and over on good strikers. It has a good range also, I can see Machida catching one.

1 thing I guess we all knows is to NEVER EVER count the H-Bomb out. It only take 1 shots to Knock people out and as history has showed us, it can and has knocked out some of the whose who of MMA.

But my money is on Lyoto. His footwork will aviod the H-Bomb and tag Hendo until he got the UD.

But still, NEVER count the H-bomb out.
