Shogun and Hendo were slugging it out from the opening bell though, Machida's fights, especially against strong wrestlers, generally don't go that same way. Wouldn't surprise me at all if the 1st round is more or less a feeling out process between the two. I agree there's a good chance Hendo gasses before the 3rd round is out, or goes all out in the 1st looking for the finish and either succeeds or fails, but it also wouldn't surprise me if we're left hoping for more after 3 rounds.
