Well at least Lyoto has another nap in his future.

I'm okay with it. Just as I would have been if it was Rua.
If not one of them, then who?

Machida is a lucky guy. All he ever needs is a 1 fight win streak to get title shots.

Toughest match up for Jones anyway. Gonna be interesting to see how Machida handles the grappling of Jones this time around.

No one really left for JBJ to fight, and out of the few LHW contenders, Machida still gives the most challenge to JBJ.

One H-Bomb may remind people that Henderson is in this title picture too

One of those bad boys lands then we may be seeing Hendo/Machida!

Then who would you pick? Rua? How many wins has he had since he lost the title?

The problem is that Jones has beat everyone worthy already. The 205 division needs some talented new blood, and it needs it fast.

That being said, in a rematch, with Machida, or Rua down the line, anything can happen. Most fights don't play out the same way twice.

I'm hoping by the time the Machida/JBJ fight actually happens, there will be a few new contenders in the mix. Hopefully Gustafsson continues to dominate, and maybe Teixeira will get a win streak going to be in line after Gustafsson.
