To be honest, it's kind of a skill that you manage to take such a bleak outlook because things couldnt be better right this second.
lol you REALLY should've been online at 3 this morning!

Machida is coming off an awesome KO of Bader, who is miles ahead of Vera. After winning the title, Machida faught a different style. He was trying to make things more exciting by pushing forward. He changed it back up in the Bader fight and if he keeps fighting the way he used to, he easily stops Shogun with a counter punch to me.
I like how you casually ignored Shoguns first round destruction of Forrest Griffin.

Let's look at Machida's last few performances:

Bader - solid win, impressive
Jon Jones - Violently choked into unconsciousness in the second round
Randy Couture - .........
Rampage - bad loss
Shogun - KO'd in the first round.

Other than the Bader win, Lyoto really hasn't looked impressive against top tier competition.

I don't think he's changed any thing about his style either. He was bull rushed by Shogun and got KO'd, and after the Jon Jones hell bows on the ground where he saw his own blood, he crumbled under the pressure.

I think Jones should get a rematch against the telephone pole. No alcohol this time. Just a champion against his wooden adversary in the rematch of the year.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

if he keeps talking the way he has recently, all he'll have left around him is his 'wooden adversary'...

...yep! I went there!

I agree, Hendo should get the next fight.

I will give my opinion because I think there isn't a single interesting rematch , and I don't see old Hendo having a snowballs chance in hell. The prospects are also not ready leaving the field IMO wise open for Jones to move up and test the hw waters against a mid tear fighter and none is stylistically a more interesting match up than Stevan Struce. The reach the nasty guard, i think it may be one of the most interesting possible fights.
