Starting to get genuinely annoyed at these faux Title contendership/eliminator fights. I'd like to see Gustaf fight JBJ. I just don't think he'd win. What I do believe is that he deserves the title fight. As I'm writing this I'm considering a Machida/JBJ fight. If Machida loses, then JBJ beats Gustaf, where next for JBJ?

As for the Machida/Gustaf fight. I can see it going either way. I don't believe Machida will knock him out though. Not after taking those shots from Rua. Gustaf can win this fight by being more active then Machida on the feet, staying away from the straight punching counters, and scoring the odd trip takedown which as you all know, Machida is also pretty adept at.
