    "I believe this will be a more intense fight. A bit more aggressive. " Machida told Combate. " Our main goal, other than the victory, is to put on a great show. That's in my mind. As a professional, I get in a dilemma between sport and entertainment. There's these two sides. Fans will be cheering and people want to see new things."

    Of course, he is aware of the dangers Henderson brings to the table, even though he already defeated him by split decision back in 2013.

    "He is a tough guy. He was going to fight Jon Jones a few years ago. He has put on great fights. His career speaks for itself, so I can't underestimate him."

    My take - Am I the only one who enjoyed their first fight ? I love Machida's style and I thought Hendo did well. Machida could be more aggressive, but it's not his style and often gets him in trouble. Given he's talking about the 'entertainment' aspect of the sport, I figure he's going to be looking to wow the crowd.

    Machida is on the decline, but Hendo should have retired years ago.

    Their age and decline cancel each other out. I think it will be a fun fight.

    Machida should have been more agressive way more earlier than end of his career...

    For the love of all that's sherdog, please tell me Machida is not going to Aldo himself.

    When Machida loses to someone besides the current champion, the former champion, and the guy who was going to fight for the title until he got busted for roids then we can say he's on a decline.

    Hendo is one of my all time favorites but their is not one thing anybody can say to legitimize this fight it is literally a joke. Hendo could somehow get lucky and land the H-bomb but don't hold your breath he is slower than a turtle in a triathlon. Hendo being in my top 5 all time greats I give him 0 % chance of winning this fight not 10 not 20 I give him 0.

    Dan's chin is gone. One kick and it's over.

    First you say Hendo could get lucky and land the H-bomb and after that you say he has a 0 chance of winning. Sometimes it really feels like the average IQ of sherdoggers is around 90.

    He's been imitating McGregor so much that he thinks he is McGregor, H-Bomb will put him to sleep.

    I don't know why Machida has decided to become more aggressive this late in his career, I don't think it suits him and its the reason he lost to Rockhold and Romero IMO.

    He has deviated too far from his style and is fighting like a Thai fighter instead of a Karateka.

    That being said, he is going to KO Dan in devastating fashion... He is way too fast for him.
