Dan Henderson (29-8 MMA, 6-2 UFC) is "perfectly fine" playing second fiddle at UFC 157.

The veteran fighter and de facto top light-heavyweight contender meets former champ Lyoto Machida (18-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) in the co-headliner of the February event.

In the headlining spot is the UFC's first-ever women's fight: newly crowned bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey (6-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) vs. Liz Carmouche (7-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC).

Really? It's a match up of two top tier LHWs that haven't fought yet, I'm always down for that.

Im not fine with it, Hendo is screwed out of a shot, no other way to say it. His style plays right into Machida's strength and will hurt him getting one more title shot.

I guess the only plus out of this is its 3 rounds instead of 5 which helps Hendo.
