Thanks for the upload Bruno.

really? really? Not an exciting fight at all, but how in the hell was this scored. What a freak’n joke. Back peddling with no engagement but a few kicks and punches here and there – totally running the whole fight, using dance moves and ridiculous hand gestures won the fight. What an embarrassment of a fight for the UFC and as much as an embarrassment of the outcome!

DavidJones Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:16:58 from    

^^bullshit machida won that, if ufc wasnt about bullsXXt they would show compute strike, hendo only had the third round take down and didnt do much there. hendo is still awesome but thats no a good match up for him.

AOPrinciple Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:23:49 from    

I’m kind of surprised to see comments about Henderson winning the fight. I would have given the third round to Hendo, but the first two went to Machida. His style is less engaging, but he did more damage; he mitigated damage to himself and worked on Dan’s leg while landing some really good, uh, face kicks. I don’t think Machida was “running” that’s just the way he fights. I think that if Hendo really wanted to catch up with him he should have shot for a takedown. The single time Machida was on his back if was off the clinch.

Machida won that clearly.. not an exciting fight, but Machida landed the harder shots via counter punching. Look at Dan’s face afterwards. TRT Hendo has lost all the big fights in UFC; lost title fights to Anderson, and Rampage, and this probably his last chance to get a title shot. UFC = No Country For Old Men.

screwballhk Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:34:29 from    

Why, on earth, would you Henderson win that fight though? He hit Lyoto with nothing except a couple of leg kicks.

kalikaputra Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:36:00 from    

What you want the guy to do? Bondi had to push but when he did he got out punched and kneed,so he settle into dominion now and again. Mac Ida was running he was evading.one more round and Dan would of gotten tko’d

Nexstory Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:37:16 from    

This should have been a ten round fight. Maybe by the eight round the feeling out and posturing period might have been over and the real fighting would begin. Much respect for both men but very disappointed how they matched up for this one.

straightAhead Says, in 2-24-2013 at 01:53:55 from    

Machida won that clearly; and how in the hell did they give the 1st round to Henderson? It should have been a UD for Machida.

People suck who say Machida was running the whole fight. Idiots! Learn something about technique and strategy before you comment!

boonching Says, in 2-24-2013 at 02:20:13 from    

bad match up for hendo

jaydog Says, in 2-24-2013 at 02:25:41 from    

shitty cuz hendo could atleast ko jones with one shot if he connected. lyoto has no chance. oh well.

ken shiro Says, in 2-24-2013 at 02:49:20 from    

Machida totally won this fight….Dan had no answer to Machidas style..like it or not the only scoring / damage was done by Lyoyto.

Osmond Says, in 2-24-2013 at 03:19:07 from    

To the people complaining, what the **** did Dan do to deserve the win? That’s right, nothing. Lyoto landed more and deserved to win. Boring fight, though.

Wow Says, in 2-24-2013 at 03:35:19 from    

What a sh@t showing by both fighters, should be ashamed for basically stealing the fans money.

Yomommamoto Norifumi Says, in 2-24-2013 at 03:41:03 from    

Henderson showed more aggression, engaged far more, got one take down and overall felt like he did more.

BS decision in my opinion.

Not bagging Machida’s style as I like them both equally for diff. reasons but what did he do really?

He landed a few strikes clipping Dan pretty well with some of them on the way in but nothing considerable in that it altered Dan’s approach.

Maybe the judges felt Henderson had no answer for Machida’s style but it’s pretty hard to engage and fight someone who’s constantly…..well lets say not exactly fighting. Dan tried rounds one and two and then after the ground appeared to be luring Machida in. Machida was a little more on the offense in the end of the third but really not up to much overall…

Bad decision.

pinkelephantsmarching Says, in 2-24-2013 at 04:01:42 from    

Wow…David Jones you are so off on every fight you watch…Less beer, more carrot juice(for the eyes)…they did show the compute strike…Hendo had more total strikes due to all of the leg kicks he threw…You can google other sources and see that on several different sites…whether or not they were effective..still had more strikes than Lyoto..and Machida did run all fight…it was ridiculous.

Tear Says, in 2-24-2013 at 05:14:02 from    

Machida played it safe. Not a great fight, but Henderson had nothing on Machida.
Machida is the better fighter.

Twana Says, in 2-24-2013 at 06:52:47 from    

The Karate Kid schooled the bum and still at the end of the fight, the bum raised his hand.

I guess hookers want a bigger dxxx after getting f***** by a big dxxx.

oshawabinalex Says, in 2-24-2013 at 07:38:24 from    

I hope sonnen wins. Then we would see machida vs sonnen and henderson vs jones. The fights we wanna see. Machida cant run backwards faster than sonnen can take him down. Make it happen Sonnen.

metaal Says, in 2-24-2013 at 07:50:18 from    

lol at people complaining about the scoring.
i scored it 29-28 myself.
machida aint running he is a counter-striker. Why would he stand his feet and eat a punch?
First round was a toss-up. Nothing really happens beside 1 or 2 punches from henderson and a takedown and some ground punches for machida. Because he ended on top i gave it to machida. Second round clearly went to machida and 3e to henderson. Needed to be a 5-round fight, but trt-man lost in my eyes.

elf Says, in 2-24-2013 at 08:44:41 from    

I miss pride fighting, UFC is boring

Powertele Says, in 2-24-2013 at 09:51:03 from    

Henderson pushed the action the entire fight. Machida only pushed the last minute of the last round. Henderson’s ground and pound was effective. The compustrike showed that the fighters were dead even, Machida more headstrikes and Henderson more body strikes. Henderson wins in my book because he pushed the fight. When Machida pushed the last minute he was very effective. The guy needs to come to taste blood not counter-strike. Jones will eat him up again.

KouNTa KuLCHa Says, in 2-24-2013 at 10:09:20 from    

Elusiveness doesn’t win fights, according to the rules anyways.
Octagon control and aggression does.
Boring fight, but not Dan’s fault. Machida frustrates me just watching.
Just goes to show you, urine beats TRT, anyday of the week. ;) haha♠

metaal Says, in 2-24-2013 at 10:17:36 from    


jones would win in a rematch, but he would destroy hendo (like he destroyed machida and all of his last oponents)

DodiBoy Says, in 2-24-2013 at 10:40:35 from    

ummmm, AWESOME fight. If you want to see two guys brawling the whole time look up kimbo slice fights on youtube. In the cage it’s a game of strategy, and Machida was the MUCH better tactician. If he stood in front of Hendo he would have been demolished. Instead, he got inside Hendersons head and every time he charged forward trying to set up his ONLY tool, Machida answered in devastating fashion. The UFC is very fortunate to have so many styles of fighter around and Machida is the last of a dying breed. It gets so old watching carbon-copied fighters getting in the ring, it almost seems choreographed when they all take the same approach. By the way, this is coming from a fighter who utilizes both evasive strategy AND the stand your ground keep moving forward and battle mentality.

martial arts at it’s finest. Haters just want to see tank abbott vs kimbo slice

Dr.JKell Says, in 2-24-2013 at 12:15:25 from    

absolutely boring! the outcome of this fight has no significance whatsoever! What would be the diff. if this fight never took place? Machida’s style is “safe”. its like watching Mayweather, Jones,Hector Camacho in boxing, after awhile youve seen enough! Yes he is highly skilled, but a real sleeper for me. I also found it very annoying how the ref. was hounding Dan to stay busy on the ground? looked like he was? especially when compared to that non stop action packed stand-up?

dickface Says, in 2-24-2013 at 12:23:57 from    

classic machida. sit and wait. boring f****** fighter.

tg Says, in 2-24-2013 at 12:49:30 from    

Machida you SUCK! run run run, round 1 Dan Round2 Machida, Round3 Dan without a doubt, Its time to change the octagon size, how can machida really go home and b happy with his performance? Patrick ur a dumb man if thats martial arts at its finest

brucelee23 Says, in 2-24-2013 at 13:19:49 from    

Bye Bye Hendo !!!!

Sammy Says, in 2-24-2013 at 14:20:06 from    

They have to implement cautions for not engaging and backing up / running away. They have cautions in wrestling and TKD and other martial arts.

You get 2 cautions for being too defensive and they deduct a point.

We have what you call good movement and then you have scoring a couple of strikes and then running away for 4 minutes like Round 2.

They should start deducting points for not engaging IMO.

Wow Says, in 2-24-2013 at 14:59:31 from    

Hmm Let’s just stay in the pocket and TRADE WITH HENDO… Great Idea… Freaken Hendo fans.

mmafan Says, in 2-24-2013 at 16:11:26 from    

I like both of these fighters…both class acts. The is another example of why an important non-title fight like this ought to be 5 rounds. But in this day and age of attention deficit sound-bites things are compressed to where they are meaningless. Machida did his thing..and Hendo could not do his thing. I appreciate evasion as a fight tactic as well, imagine if this was a bar brawl, if you are quick and make your opponent swing at air, you are avoiding punishment, while darting in an inflicting punishment..its a valid strategy, but only for fans that appreciate strategy..not for ADHD type fans.

subidoo Says, in 2-24-2013 at 16:35:59 from    

tg, you suck. Machida doesn’t.

Machida is the only one who has ever wobbled Jon Jones. He’s the only one who stands the chance of winning. I think Machida’s next fight against Jones will be even better than the last one. Hendo would have gotten choked out quicker than Machida did, and Hendo would have landed no punches. All he can do is wait for someone to walk up to him so he could hit them. He needs new tricks to get a title shot. Go

subidoo Says, in 2-24-2013 at 16:36:55 from    

I meant, Good luck Machida! Not, “Go” at the end of my post. (-:

bigbob Says, in 2-24-2013 at 17:19:31 from    

its time for spiderman to move up
to weight and fight this karate kid
or spiderman moves up and fights hendo

Not anonymous Says, in 2-24-2013 at 19:38:46 from    

This was Condit Diaz II as far as I’m concerned. At the end of the day, this was a martial arts demo, not a fight. The UFC used to score fights based on Effective Striking, Grappling, Aggression, and Octagon control. Now, whomever gets hit less wins, no matter how much they back peddle. The era of time-limit manipulation and point-seeking has begun. Someone will invent a reverse treadmill strictly for MMA training.

ditchpigii Says, in 2-24-2013 at 20:17:45 from    


….yup…. I really had the feeling things were going to erupt into some high precision fight ending violence if there had been another round or two.

I for one found it fascinating. Both guys have finished enough people that you knew one mistake could end it at any time.

wow Says, in 2-24-2013 at 20:31:19 from    

Spiderman already beat hendo bigbob

PitfighterZ Says, in 2-24-2013 at 21:14:50 from    

Hendo had nothing in his tank or in his game plan. Machida did what he needed to win. It’s not like anyone has ever KOed Hendo before.
Anyone saying Hendo won the fight just need to take a look at the number of strikes landed and the ones that did any damage at all. All Machida. Hendo punched air and gassed.

wcoastassassin Says, in 2-24-2013 at 22:28:31 from    

Even though Machida won (maybe all 3 rounds) it was such a boring style I think they should give Dan the title shot instead because he pressed the action. I see him getting inside on Jones more often than this fight with Machida’s weird Kung Fu movie dancing.

Meshuggah79 Says, in 2-24-2013 at 22:55:23 from    

Lokk at fight metric, machida had double amount of good shots landed

subidoo Says, in 2-25-2013 at 02:21:43 from    


You are right on. Can you blame Machida for being elusive? Hendo would knock him out? Can you blame Hendo for not being more vigilant in chasing him? No, Machida would knock him out. That fight was like it was for a reason. It could end quick for both!

Tesla Says, in 2-25-2013 at 03:37:35 from    

You Hendo nuthuggers are seriously retarded. If you don’t understand Martial arts, stop watching or go watch Boxing and count numbers. Fight Metric has Hendo hitting more WORTHLESS shots, but less SIGNIGICANT shots and based on accuracy, damage and effectiveness they actually have Machida winning ALL THREE ROUNDS (30/27).

If you seriously think that Machida is running or he isn’t TRYING to know guys out, then you basically have not seen him fight. So when Machida knocks guys out like Randy, Bader, Evans and Thiago (the WORST KOs of all their careers), he fights in a way that isn’t looking for damage? Get real, avoiding damage and dealing more damage is the name of the game for SMART fighters. Last I checked, Dan looked tired and beat up at the press conference and Lyoto looked like nothing happened to him at all. FYI, watch the video again, the last 2 minutes of RD 3 all Dan did was RUN away and eat shots.

japncuz Says, in 2-25-2013 at 14:00:57 from    

machida is top tier. haters gone hate

John Boss Says, in 2-25-2013 at 15:26:30 from    

It’s always a pleasure to watch Lyoto…a karate master. What a style!

MMAgiantsilva Says, in 2-25-2013 at 16:02:42 from    

That was a s*** fight. Lol nice joke ^^ but I scored it slightly for Hendo since he fought. But in reality there r no winners here. FTW It was fair to give it to machida also this was a tough fight to score because niether one landed much.

Dnomyar Says, in 2-25-2013 at 17:07:13 from    

If MMA fights were like this one, there wouldn’t be a sport. No one would watch and the majority of comments are right in this case. Running and inflicting little or no damage is not winning a fight and it is boring. Lyoto should have at least been warned for no engagement. On the other hand, in these kind of fights, if the aggressor just stopped chasing, … the opponent or the ref would have to do something. Hendo should have stood in the middle of the ring and waited. Why should he do all the running.
By the way, Lyoto worshippers, a master would have finished old tired Hendo. He was not effective. I love a good chess match, but this wasn’t it. I also thought Hendo fought a stupid fight. Tedium all around.

Achilles Says, in 2-26-2013 at 13:08:21 from    

for u guys that dont even compete..theres this thing we call a game plan…its not always how to make an entertaining fight..its about how to get the W

Biutze Says, in 2-27-2013 at 01:23:17 from    

Lol.. so lame that people have the nerve to raise their hand in obvious defeat.. any slight chance to suck out a win because they know the refs are foolish..

stfu hendo f*gs Says, in 7-11-2013 at 06:48:50 from    

i scored it 2 > 1 hendo but BARELY. fair might’ve been a draw.

machida’s backpeddling bullshit is annoying but so is dan henderson thinking hes NEVER lost a f***** fight in his life.

ID BREAK HIS FACE MYSELF. hes a punk bully wannabe little bitch on trt.

hes a DUMB fighter with ZERO game plan for any of his fights nor any skills. all “aggression”. but his “aggression” is sloppy half the time, and in this fight ALL THE TIME.

at the end of the day, i almost ALWAYS score the fight as the guy who had less damage won.

that is what a fight is right? so to all you hendo f*ggy nuthuggers, he had a mouse over his right eye, machida had none….

still a boring ass fight anyways b/c lyota is tentative and hendo is reckless, untalented, gets gassed, and is so hilariously overrated.

H bomb? LOL. the fedor bomb was MUCH more powerful….
