The UFC’s spite-booking between light-heavyweight contenders Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida is close to being finalized. Sources close to the event have informed MMA Fighting that Hendo and Pervo have verbally agreed to meet at UFC 157, which will go down February 23rd at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The bout isn’t expected to be the card’s main event, which is still TBA at this point. Not that we wouldn’t want to speculate.

Due to a poorly-timed knee injury, Henderson has gone all of 2012 without a single Octagon appearance — not an ideal situation for a 42-year-old athlete, but at least the layoff has given him time to enroll in shit-talking school — while Machida is coming off his August knockout of Ryan Bader. The winner will likely take on Jon Jones, after the champ finishes thrashing Chael Sonnen in April. (No, I’m still not going to give Sonnen a chance, no matter how many insulting specialty pizzas he creates.)

Machida's just noticing that Ryan's unconscious bladder involuntarily leaked some perfectly drinkable piss. He's not sure if the right thing to do is let it go to waste or lick it off the mat.

Damn. They're not gonna give Hendo a title shot after a loss. Oh well.

Q: What is the first thing Lyoto Machida says when he wakes up in the morning?

A: Can someone get me a cup of piss please?

I'm just guessing here but I don't think piss-drinking and moustaches are a good mix.

Everone knew u just dont run in on machida unless u have ridiculous reach(jon jones). I dont understand y bader stood with him,and just ran in blindedly. he should have worked more for the takedown he would have had better success.

You think Machida is bowing, but he is actually checking to make sure he didn't ruin the polish on his toenails.
