All those fights should be good. The main event will be more about betting on how long it takes for Rousey to rip her arm off but it should be fun to watch. The Johnson/Schaub fight will just be a sloppy bomb throwing war for about 2 minutes. One of them every now and then is fun to watch.

It really depends on how Machida fights. If he goes back to fighting like the Machida of old, yeah Hendo is going to look like a fish out of water but if he is the aggressive Machida, he might find himself on the bad side of one of those overhand rights. I'm leaning more towards Machida fighting like he did against Bader who is essentially a less talented Hendo. I don't think he'll KO Hendo as fast, if at all but he should be able to pick him apart for 3 rounds. Styles make fights.

I don't expect him to finish Hendo at all, but I anticipate Hendo swinging at air for 3 rounds, and we might even see Lyoto try and put Hendo on his back, where he isn't strong.

machida takes in the second by rear naked choked. machida attacks the knee and floats in and out in the first peppering hendo with kicks and punches. same approach in the second until machida changes levels on a punch and trips/singles hendo good leg. ends shortly after.

damn, captain, you're picking your boy to be finished?

the more I think of it, i think machida will go back to his karate point fighting roots for this fight. he is one fight from a title shot, and prob won't wanna take risks. him attempting to TD hendo just puts him in the danger zone. look for him to use speed and counter punching, though i don't think he has the power to hurt dan.

dana is such a money grubbing, leach hypocrite. said he would never do women's MMA, and as soon as Ronda starts getting major attention, he makes a women's division, lol

You do have to remember he is a business man and although we know , and I'm sure he knows, that there are very talented women fighters out there, the marketability outside of Carano and Rousey really isn't there. Even Cyborg has some hype about her because she was basically a beserker that punched the face off everyone she fought. Dana was going to put Carano in the octagon but then she was punched into retirement by Cris Cyborg. Now that there is another hype train rolling through, it make sense for him to make the move now. Why let Rousey's popularity go somewhere else? Now is the time to take the chance.

He's also said that if Caramouche wins the fight, it's not like he's canning the division. They aren't going to end the investment that fast. Plus the UFC seems to give legitimacy to things. No one gave a shit outside of the diehards about the flyweights but now people are excited to see the "Little Guys" fight and it will be the same with women.

I'm hoping this brings in alot of the Hook N Shoot girls. I'd also love to see Tara LaRosa, Marloes Connen, Meisha Tate, Zoila Gurgel and most importantly Megumi Fujii in the octogon.
