Fight Odds: Machida Nearly A 2-1 Favorite Over Dan Henderson | UFC NEWS

February 9, 2013 12:36 pm by BJPENN.COM News

Oddsmakers aren’t sold on the fact that Dan Henderson can take out Lyoto Machida when the two light-heavyweight fighters square off at UFC 157 in Anaheim.

For his part Dan Henderson has cemented his place in the sport as one of the all-time greats. As far back as I can remember he has nearly decapitated all of his opponents not named Anderson Silva or Rampage Jackson.

Machida has an impressive resume as well, one that saw him rise to UFC Champion as an undefeated force of nature, but he has seen mixed results since becoming champion with his epic win over Rashad Evans. The Karate based Brazilian has dropped fights to “Shogun” Rua, Rampage Jackson and Jon Jones in recent history and now faces another stiff test against Hendo.

So why are these lines so lopsided?
