Assuming he doesn't blow out his knee again...War Hendo.

Great matchup, i also got Machida by decision.
I think it could be a dominant decision also, i just think Machida is a very bad matchup for hendo.

Machida should see the H-bomb coming from a mile away.  Machida will be a -325 favorite.

Arf !! I would prefer they give Hendo the title shot right after UFC 152 fight, cos at his age, and if he loose against Machida, he coud say good bye to another run at the title .. :((

Im just saying that IF machida and hendo get a fight together, Machida i believe will win.

what will Hendo do when he throws that H-bomb and Machida's not there? Game plan over.
He doesnt have the speed to catch Machida with anything, and with Machida staying out of range, Hendo will have to shoot from a mile away, won't be able to take him down.
This will be Machida in and out, dismantling Hendo progressively for 3 rounds, if its not main, otherwise I think he can finish him in 5.

@ben everyone should see the hbomb coming a mile away but that doesnt mean much when it still lands.

Hendo will win by knock out or machida will win a decision.  I dont think hendo can hold down machida well enough to get the nod but machida can play his game well enough with hendo to win easily. Hendos only shot is to land his big right hand which i dont think machida can handle.  Machida needs a near perfect fight (which he is fully capable of having) and hendo needs one solid punch (which he is fully capable of landing).  

Great fight, ill be rooting for hendo personally.

So...... Jones/Belfort winner wont fight for six months?

Or Does the Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva fight happen?
Or Does Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier happen if Cormier beats Mir?

Hendo should be getting the winner of Jones/Belfort. An injury doesn't change #1 contendership.
