Dan Henderson came into UFC 157 with a simple game plan of attempting to touch Lyoto Machida's chin with his vaunted right hand. Unfortunately for the Team Quest fighter, that opportunity never presented itself.
Henderson looked every bit of a 42-year-old fighter in chasing Machida around the Octagon for 15 minutes. Even when Henderson found himself in an advantageous position like he did when he had Machida clinched in the first round or in Machida's guard in the final frame, Henderson couldn't mount any offense.
At 42 years old Henderson can't afford any losses as he attempts to battle Father Time. It's obvious he's out of the light heavyweight title picture after losing to Machida, but Henderson's career is far from over.
The former Pride and Strikeforce champ has a handful of avenues left to explore in order to keep his career going.
