Can't believe that i'll finally get to watch Machida fight.
Seems like my favorite fighter only fights once a year ...

I hate to bet against Hendo but he hasn't fought in 18 months and Machida looked spectacular against Bader. Yeah Bader but still, big athletic wrestler with heavy hands, Machida toyed with him.

Hendo is always dangerous but in this fight, is rightful underdog. His last two wins are great, but clouded by name value.

Dan will beat Machida. He wont stand out there and let him pick his shots. Dan will put his back either on the mat or cage and batter him with knees and punches. Machida is flamboyant but not made for what he,s about to get tonight

He had an ok first round vs. Bones....then he got rocked on the feet and then subbed. He looked nimble vs. a 46 year old man and Ryan Bader....

He does outclass Hendo in speed. But Machida can be chinny and Hendo's right lands even though people know it is coming.

The only person to hold Machida down is Jon Jones.

Dan Henderson at age 42 isn't Jon Jones, I was a little surprised by how much bigger Machida is than Hendo which really shows you how much balls Hendo has fighting guys like Fedor. It wouldn't surprise me at all if Machida did to him what he did to Tito.

Dan Henderson by UD. Especially cause this is 3 rd fight. Dan will keep him uncomfortable with dirty pressure hendo style! If it was a 5 rounder would at least let machida have a chance. Heck thats consevative Hendo puts him to sleep if he lands right early

Ya i know i do wish henderson would stay at 185. Its like pick ur poison silva or jones. I do think a 5 rd fight would be better for machida. Ithink dan beats him but ya style wise only other worse matchup for dan is Jones

Hopefully we get a good fight fellas. The fact that Henderson is 42 and is coming of 12+ months of inactivity is a concern.
If he KTFO machida, it would be remarkable; I think he has one more year in him, hopefully he gets his fight against Jones and then his rematch against Silva for his retirement(goat) fight.

Hendo looks tired already sparring in the backstage.
