Doesn't Hendo-Machida make perfect sense

There will be no worthy opponent for Machida(or shogun, if one so pleases) for a while after 104. Hendo is a worthy 185 contender, but is not going to get a shot there until atleast April or May.
Hendo is a big name who can certainly hang with anbody in the 205 division, why not have Hendo-Machida in February.

Btw, for anybody wondering about Marquardt, have him face win the winne of Okami-Sonnen for the next title shot after Belfort. Maybe they can finnally do something with the UFC's black sheep, Okami.

Dan Henderson needs to beat a couple of Top 10s at LHW to be next in line for Lyoto Machida or Mauricio Rua.

After seeing Nogueira drop him with a combination of punches... him facing Lyoto should be a cakewalk in the first or second round for The Dragon's second title defense.

I see Couture beating Vera with his wrestling.

Couture/Hendo for sure. Please... Dana... Make this happen. I have to go with Dan on this one because his wrestling is close to par with Couture and he has a better chin. Should be tko or split decision for hendo.

Oh and on topic, I really dont want to see Couture/Machida because Machida would win a one sided fight. But Couture Shogun could be fun with Mark COleman giving Shogun a hard time, I think Couture really could outwrestle shogun and get the D.

yea because unlike every other homo in almost every division right now, randy and hendo are some of the closest friends and i guarantee they would still fight eachother and be friends after, this is a classic match up im so suprised hasnt happened yet.

but yea i think i wouldn't really want to see randy fight machida, but at the same time i always like to see randy fight, whoever it is
