Now Belfort is going to get taken down and destroyed. But, you never know. He has a punchers chance.

But Machida and the others did the right thing. It's easy for us fans to sit here and whine when fighter don't throw away their careers for us, but put yourself in their shoes and you'l sing a different tune.

He has one win after losing to Jones.

Ryan Bader


There are alot of people with lesser names that deserve the title shot over Machida. Heck if Machida can get 2 more B level wins then id say Machida deserved it GIVEN the situation. But i cant realistically say he deserves it yet even based on the situation.
