Alright, before I really liked what I was seeing, now I really really like it.


Tony Ferguson vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
Mauricio Rua vs. Rashad Evans
Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida
Michael Chiesa vs. Beneil Dariush
Bethe Correia vs. Raquel Pennington

Shaping up to be a good show.

Damn. This has plenty of potential to be another nasty KO loss for Hendo. He's really going to regret these last couple of years in about 10-20.

Can't possibly be worse than their last fight together a few years ago.

It goes both ways. Poor Lyoto has fought nothing but heavy handed wrestlers and has been on the wrong side of some nasty beatings these last few years.

Fair point.

Lyoto is 8 years younger, has fought 16 less times and spent most of his career not being hit though. Hendo went through his entire career labelled as one of the best chins in mma. I'd argue the amount of punishment Machida's had to endure is no where close to Hendo. I like this fight, don't get me wrong but I do worry about the future of a guy like Hendo, who doesn't seem to know when to hang up the gloves. The chances of him suffering from his decision later in life are very high at this point.

Wondering if this fight is at MW or LHW.

Regardless, I'm not a fan of this matchup. Not only does it really not make any sense, but the last time they fought was very lackluster. Both of these guys are definitely capable of scoring KO's and being KO'd, but for some reason I can't see this fight being much different from their first.

I'd like to see these guys matched up with guys they've never fought before. Both of them, along with a load of other fighters, have fought a lot of the same guys multiple times. What's up with all the rematches?

It will be nice to see Lyoto back after that brutal Rockhold loss. Rockhold is champ now so no shame. This should pretty much be it for Henderson especially if Machida has any left.

Weird rematch. I don't remember the first fight being that entertaining.
