Lyoto's TDD and wrestling negate his size disadvantage. Not saying he'd be in contention (JDS is a training partner/would kill him, Velasquez would terminate him etc) but I think he'd break top 10 without a lot of struggle.
Sure Machida would have a have a chance thanks to his elusive style and Brocks response to absorbing punches but i seriously doubt he'd stuff a Lesnar takedown. Brock has trained wrestling all his life, has a massive strength and size advantage and so far has taken down every fighter he has faced (even Cain). Machida wouldn't spring up like Cain did.
