I've said it a few times, I dont want Machida to get a number 1 contenders match, or even fight at that level for a bit. He lost focus after he won the belt. He regained his focus in the Bader fight. I dont think putting him in there with Hendo, win or lose, would held him get refocused and be 100% again. I actually want Machida Vs Rampage most of all. I feel that with Shogun and Rampage nearing the end of their careers, Machida should fight both of them before chasing a title shot again. It would give him time to reestablish his full capabilities and they wouldnt be throw away fights because he'd be avenging two bad losses. Then, there would only be one black mark to wipe off of his record, the LHW champion.
