    Who takes the match?

    Will it be a close stand up battle?

    I honestly think Dan has nothing for Machida. Nothing in stand up or any area of MMA for that matter. Yes Dan is a bad ass, and a tough mo fo. But he will be a sitting duck against Machida in my opinion.

    A lot of people think Dan Henderson needs to come out swinging for the fences. I disagree. Dan has to work on picking his shots, setting up his overhand less predictably, and keeping pressure on Machida instead of just rushing. Dan needs to play a game similar to how Rampage played it, and hope he can squeak out a few rounds instead of go for broke.

    Hendo will probably use his wrestling against the fence and just grind him out

    I luv how Hendo's opponent gets crushed in OP Vid #2. It's a classic example of the classical boxing defense-FAILl.... re-actively reposition blows up on defender....
    ^^^ YEAH, SEE ABOVE, WHY IS THAT.... :p
    ^^^ I brought this over under a foreign concept called "synthesis." It's no wonder TMA's don't venture into the DW / JR World and then to be judged by this....

    ^^^ All of the things you complain about can be made into an answer to take DH right out in Vid #2.

    ^^^ Where did I get the CONCEPT? From all the things you, and Discipulus, et al complain about....

    >>> Focus mitts yeah.... yeah, yeah.

    I'm starting to think that Dan might have it in him to give Machida a fight. Once upon a time I thought he'd get wrecked off the bat. But he's no longer the wild swinging sort of fighter he used to be. The Bisping fight is an excellent example of that. I still have Machida winning this one, but if Dan can fight patiently (as he did against Bisping), work his jab and set up his right hand well, then I think he could take this one. It was an overhand that Shogun used to drop him. Problem is Dan doesn't have Shogun's leg kicks, but he has shown success using that inside kick and the jab to immobilize people in the past, so we'll see. I think Hendo is a savvier striker these days than many give him credit for. He's got more than just power.

    Dan will stalk him out and get the TD.

    Grinding it out against the fence is another good bet

    Can Dan pin Machida to the fence? :icon_neut I don't Machida's so easy to get a hold of, unless he's fighting Jones. My hope is that he's once again working those sweeps he used to be so renowned for, and that he can mount Dan like Shogun did and put him to sleep.

    TD attempts might do it. Pressure and angles wont cut it, IMO

    I see. That makes sense. It's certainly been the explanation for a lot of Dan's success with his hands in the past. The Chael Sonnen vs. Anderson Silva recipe. I just hope to God Dan doesn't suddenly think to throw a spinning backfist.

    after surviving the 2012 apocalypse, I would hate to have the fabric of space and time torn asunder when hendo spins into a falcon punch and lands with more force than the universe could safely handle.

    His main strategy will be to stalk and pump out those hands occasionally and hoping Machida fks up defensively somewhere (he will , whether Hendo's throwing the right punch at the right time remains to be seen).

    Look for machida to be extra flighty in this fight.

    Machida is gonna gameplan and do his homework on that H bomb... But if it lands it may be game over for the dragon...

    ^^^ AGREED.... 100%. Is it necessary to talk like you're in kindergarten... :confused: /// scratch that.... silly question....

    ^^^ REALLY.... WHY DON'T YOU STAND IN FRONT OF HENDERSON & LET HIM UNLOAD.... Maybe you need to "Google Translate," the 1-dimensional MMA speak you put up.... ha ha.

    Thank you , so u admit I was right.
    With Henderson you have to blue cheese but Machida is strong in his karate so I don't know.
    But you're right in that Bisping isn't Machida and they're both the same so essentially Henderson has to unload and Machida .

    ^^^ Machida Homework Question: Should 'Chida trade with Hendo? Or should Lyoto resort to his vintage elusiveness? Or what do you propose under Machida 'gameplan,' in the striking department?'

    I don't think Machida should trade with Hendo. Hendo H bomb and Machida can front kick when down from takedown sumo.
    His gameplan should be to stick and move but not trade with Hendo because mma fans and George Washington.
