Great - like that means anything. Dana says a lot of things - including that women will never fight in the UFC.
Anyway, I say let Machida get the life choked out of him again. The rest of the competition is still a little green. While there's some promising talent, the UFC stands to gain nothing if JBJ beats the shit out of some of the up and comers so bad that the UFC can't sell a rematch. Let JBJ beat the shit out of Sonnen, Machida, Shogun, Rashad and Rampage for another 1-2 years until they've restored some credibility to the division.
The fact that they are even trying to sell a JBJ/Machida rematch blows my mind. They better have some good fights in-front of it, because JBJ didn't even break a sweat while choking Machida out unconscious. Not worth $50-$60 for a rematch at all.
