BoilerBrawnByBeatdown - everyone's chin eventually cracks.

Rampage wasn't TKO'd, but that fight was Machida's very first fight after getting KTFO by Shogun, he was even MORE cautious than usual. I also think Rampage has a lot better defense than Hendo.

Hendo's chin has shown no signs of cracking at all, so assuming that will happen in his next fight is a massive leap of faith.

Machida landed as best he could on Rampage, staggered him but never knocked him down, and was not close to TKOing him. Rampage and Hendo have comparable chins. If anything Hendo's is better - Rampage's chin has been cracked multiple times, pretty brutally, whereas Hendo's has never ever been cracked (though Anderson and Shogun came closest). Machida is no Anderson and doesn't have the power of Shogun.

Any objective person knows the odds of Machida TKOing Hendo are extremely slim, these people picking Lyoto to TKO Hendo are not thinking very clearly. However Lyoto has an excellent chance at decisioning Hendo.

I'm going to take Machida on this one... He's got such amazing skills on his feet, finding range, accuracy. If he gets hit by the wrecking ball right hand of Hendo it's lights out but it's not going to be easy to catch Machida. Phone Post
