Dan Henderson will make his return to the octagon after a 15-month absence from the sport. His last bout was at UFC 139 in November 2011 when he defeated Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in one of the greatest fights of all time. The decision victory earned him a title opportunity against light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones. The championship fight was scheduled for UFC 151 in September 2012. However, just two weeks before the event, Henderson tweaked his knee and was forced to pull out of a contest for the first time in his prolific career. He now returns from the sidelines to a light heavyweight division with a different landscape, more specifically, one in which he is no longer the number one contender.

A long feeling out process to start the opening round with nothing more than kicks being exchanged between the two. Midway through the first, Lyoto started to counter with punches and avoid the powerful shots that Hendrson was throwing.

This is an interesting styles match up with Machida being an allusive counter striker and Henderson having excellent wrestling and a very heavy right hand. Not sure who to give the advantage to. This is a big fight for the light heavyweight division since the winner should be in line for the next title shot. Shout out to MMA Fighting for the interview.
Lyoto Machida Looking Fit...
Machida is one of the toughest guys to figure out, but if you pressure him and keep the pressure on, you have a shot a la Shogun. Can an older Hendo keep that pace? Can’t wait to find out.
