I don't know, I'm saying tie ball game... this is going to be one hell of a crucial 3rd round. These guys aren't young, realistically speaking, this round might be career-defining at this point.

Heart says Hendo but my mind says Machida.

This was such an uneventful fight. Pretty hard to score but probably Lyoto 29-28.

I, too, am giving the next title shot to Machida. Stats are pretty obvious on that point as well.

I'd give it to Henderson but the decision could go either way. Wouldn't be surprised to see the UFC (Dana) say neither guy did enough to deserve a shot at the press conference

Machida is such a boring fighter for how talented he is.

I dont think its boring.

The ability to evade strikes while landing strikes is impressive.

Not many, if any do it better than Machida.

Anderson Silva I suppose. That's about it.

If Hendo wanted to win that, he HAD to take down Lyoto. He didn't do that. He deserved the loss. Played in to the Dragons gameplan - wait for Dan to come in and counter.

Nothing like hearing a crowd boo a fight because it doesn't live up to some artificial standard of what makes a fight exciting.

That's Lyoto Machida, folks. Nothing worth booing when he beats the other guy.

Don't understand the hate Machida gets. He's the most elusive fighter ever, and to do what he does is just insane. He baits the hell out of people and makes them pay for it.

The thing about Machida's style is.. you'll put up with it because it might lead to an awesome finish.

But when it doesn't, it's boring as ****** sometimes.

I blame Henderson just as much. He looked like he's aged 10 years since his last fight. So basically, he looks his age now.

People can defend Machida or Henderson and I'm a fan of both guys, but that fight was not fun to watch. You can blame either guy.

Eh, ****** it. I'll blame Dana White. If he hadn't creepily fallen in love with Rousey we might have gotten to see 5 rounds of those two guys and seen a finish.

Judges got it right. Running around throwing punches at the air doesn't warrant a win.

If Rousey wins by armbar again, just fold the womens division and put Ronda in the UFC Hall of Fame.

Hendo looked very old tonight....hes a legend but his chin and "H" bomb are all he has left. Machida respected his power and just picked him apart as expected.

He did look old, but Dan is a dangerous fighter. He hardly ever loses. Even at his advanced age. A true legend.
