    :

    Exactly. I agree with the logic that we could be missing another epic war. Hopefully Hendo and Machida are going to be paid well b/c that is who most people will buy the card for.

    It is a shame Lyoto/Hendo is only going to be 3 rounds. At the same time, Dan should be happy because a 4th and 5th round aren't going to do Dan any favors.

    As much of a fan of Dan's I am, this is exactly why we need 5 rounds. Anyone wanting to fight/continue fighting at the elite level needs to be able to perform at that level.

    I really wonder how time allotment works for PPV's.

    They're had two title fights on the same card before, I can't imagine there'd be a difference. I think all title eliminator/#1 contender fights should be 5 rounds.

    It's more disturbing that he got screwed out of his title shot against Bones.

    Good point. Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez were originally scheduled to headline a supremely stacked card with far bigger names under them, before the card was shaken up and a bigger title fight was added.

    Agreed, but then the winners of the #1 contenders matchups would actually have to be given titleshots and we know that doesn't always happen.

    Ronda shouldn't be headlining a UFC event.

    I was also hoping this would be a 5 rounder, but think that making this a 5 rounder would only cause problems in the future with people debating on what qualifies a fight to be 5 rounds when not a title fight or a main event.

    Also, I agree with whoever it was that mentioned Henderson is more interested in the main event because of money then it being 5 rounds.

    This shows just one more time that Dana does not give a fuck about his own fighters.
    So Dan Hendo is a legend, champion in many orgs, has had epic wars. His opponent is a former UFC champ, a very smart and good fighter.
    However they will not be the main event because there is this Bimbo Girl that fucks Dana White, that received a belt without having one single fight in the UFC, so far has shown that she is a one trick poney, and her opponent is someone that if she lasts more than 30 seconds, it will be already a victory for her.

    But remember that it is just "Business as usual"
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
