Dan Henderson is a counterpuncher's dream. He's very predictable, telegraphs his techniques and he's not particularly fast. He has a lot of power, but that only comes into play if he connects. When Machida has a guy timed they don't connect at all. Terrible matchup for Dan--maybe the worst for him in the entrie LHW division. Machida by wide UD.
Agree with fullerene
Machida moves very quick and doesn't favor a side to circle to like bisping.
Dan's best chance in the fight would be to either fight from the clinch couture style. OR get machida to the ground and stay in top position and land damage.
Both are tall orders however. But with the right conditioning and the hope that Dan doesn't tire out he could squeak by
