Now, if Hendo can turn this into a dogfight, he's got a good chance to land the homer. Although I think Machida just fights so cleverly, evasive and impressive that he'll probably just dizzy Hendo ever time he wades in that I don't think he'll be able to put hands on him to appropriately work the clinch.
Hendo's chin is rock solid, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been dropped. Shogun and Fedor both had him loopy and for me, I just see Machida waiting for his opening, letting Dan come to him and takes advantage.
Bader's stand up is not good at all. And Henderson, while not super nimble, has experience and is sneaky at sliding his overhand right into place.
I think Machida is lucky he got the Couture and Bader fights to boost his confidence but he'll be evasive in this one. Henderson is too durable and too cagey. Eventually he'll connect or Machida will win a disappointing decision.
Either way, he doesn't get the title shot.
