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.

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.
