They'll obviously fight before this, probably and preferably against Phil Davis and Ryan Bader. Shogun can deal with Davis' slow ass and Machida can get himself a top five win over Bader.
Then they can coach and in all honesty, I'd love to see it. Anyone who believes Shogun is still the same guy from 2009/2010 is lying to themselves. His knees are completely destroyed beyond repair, his cardio is done, his movement, his speed, his quickness everything that made him dangerous in Pride and against Machida and Liddell is gone and after the two ass kickings he took at the hands of Jones and Hendo I don't think he'll ever be the same.
I'm sure the Shogun fans will march in and start bringing up the Forrest win and calling me a butt hurt Machida fan boy but those same people probably think Forrest isn't an elite fighter anymore either and anyone with half a brain could tell Forrest came just to collect a check especially after his masterful performance against Franklin.
Machida would out point Shogun today with ease and would win the trilogy and send people like Bloodstain Lane into a hilarious depression. I hope it does happen, and while they're at it line Rampage up for Machida so he can kick his ass too. Redemption must be taken and justice must be served.
