    I've heard some things that it should be, do you think it should? Do you think it will?

    Why? It's co-main.

    Don't care, Hendo will gas anyway.

    No.

    Shoulda been, but it won't be now that it's co-main event.

    I certainly hope not. After three rounds of watching Machida leap forward, land a reverse straight, and evade Henderson's overhand right, I'll be ready for a nap.

    It really should be the main event, and we all know ronda wont need five rounds to find liz's arm. That said, there is no way they make it anything but a 3 round fight because it would set a bad precedent for co-mains where its possible that two 5 round fights that go to decision would take up a majority of the ppv time and we would get less fights guaranteed to air.

    If Hendo can't land the H bomb in three, there will be no need for another 2 rounds. Would not be surprised to see Machida finish Hendo

    This, and it kind of sucks because it's going to be a 1rd main event anyway.

    Maybe Machida crane kicks Hendo in rd 2 and we're all complaining for nothing.

    Three rounds for a co-main is fine.

    Will also mean more action.

    Fedor, Anderson Silva, Rampage could not ko Dan. You think some guy who drinks his pee is going to do it? I say no way.

    While this is the fight people will be waiting for, it doesnt even matter because hendo will be gassed before the end of the 3rd

    I see Machida dropping Hendo then submitting him.
