Many argue coherently and intelligently that Dan Henderson is the best fighter in the history of MMA. To clinch that imaginary title, Hendo would have to add the UFC lightheavy weight belts to his Pride and Strikeforce titles.

Hendo was scheduled to fight Jon Jones last year, but an injury forced him out. Had he beaten Lyoto Machida Saturday night he would again have been rewarded with a title shot against the winner of Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen at UFC 159.

If Cecil Peoples had his way, Hendo would have won, but the other two judges ruled it for Machida, and thus a title shot is now some wins away.

“Normally that’s not my type of fight, a little bit boring,” Henderson said at the UFC 157 post-fight press conference. “He did a good job moving around and was real hard to hit. I needed to stay in his face and cut him off a little bit better and make him fight. He did a good job not fighting.”

“I won the fight, but not officially. I hit him whenever he wanted to fight. He ran away most of the time.”

FightMetrics showed that Henderson did indeed outstrike Machida for quantity, but 54-28. However, All but one of Machida's strikes landed significantly, something less than half of Henderson's did.

And so Lyoto Machida get the next title shot.

What do you think UG? Did Hendo win?

Real difficult fight to Judge. You can make an arguement for Hendo winning 29-28.

I saw rounds 1 and 3 for Dan. But it sure was a trip seeing Machida move like that, haters can hate but that guy avoids getting hit and is pinpoint when he counter strikes. It could have gone either way. Phone Post

Doesn't matter, everyone will remember this night for Ronda vs Liz not Hendo vs Machida.

Bottom line, Machida won a boring fight. I love Hendo, but that was a bad fight and he lost it... Phone Post

Machida won, but I really do hate how passive he is. Rampage had the right idea. Get close and then out-wait him. Make it seem like he's afraid to engage. Machida essentially forces everyone to either have long reach or to fight passively. Phone Post

If Cecil is the only judge that sides with you, that's a clear indication you didn't win. Phone Post

His corner was dumb to tell him he probably won round 2. Hendo just didnt do enough in the 3rd to seal the win. Especially at the end if the round. Him losing cost me over $900 and it is what it is. Phone Post

I like Dan, but Lyoto was clearly ahead on points. Lyoto won that fight.

Machida hit Dan with very little. Dan hit Machida with even less. End of story.

Hendo has been known to win split decisions in fights like that Phone Post
