MANILA, Philippines – Lyoto Machidan denied Dan Henderson a shot at the UFC light-heavyweight title as their UFC 157 co-main event bout ended in a close split decision in the Brazilian’s favor.

The men got one takedown each in the highly tactical bout, but Machida out-landed Henderson after three rounds.

With the win, Machida may have earned another shot at the light-heavyweight championship, after having lost to reigning champion Jon Jones last year. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 25, 2013
