Out of the list given Machida should be last. He already fought Jones and was easily beaten. Most fans are not going to want to see that rematch and pay 50$ for that PPV; unless UFC stack the card to make up for a lack luster main event.

I know on here there are hardcore fans that overlook these things but the casual fan does not want to work a couple of hours just to pay for a match that Machida loses. Not to mention Machida will be backing up the whole time.

Great - like that means anything. Dana says a lot of things - including that women will never fight in the UFC.

Anyway, I say let Machida get the life choked out of him again. The rest of the competition is still a little green. While there's some promising talent, the UFC stands to gain nothing if JBJ beats the shit out of some of the up and comers so bad that the UFC can't sell a rematch. Let JBJ beat the shit out of Sonnen, Machida, Shogun, Rashad and Rampage for another 1-2 years until they've restored some credibility to the division.

The fact that they are even trying to sell a JBJ/Machida rematch blows my mind. They better have some good fights in-front of it, because JBJ didn't even break a sweat while choking Machida out unconscious. Not worth $50-$60 for a rematch at all.

Give Jones a fight at HW and let the LHW division settle itself.

I think Gustaffson has less of a chance than Machida to win the fight.

...Poll reflects are curiousity about the length match-up factor. Now Jones not only has a skilled, tall striker like him with good hands & footwork, the reach factor is the intriguing part both kicks & punches. Honestly, If Gus starts catching JBJ like Machida did, Bread & Butter time for Jones, he will take Gus down and finish the fight. Gus is no match for JBJ on the ground. Gus deserves the shot. All the top dogs besides Hendo have gotten a crack at Jones and has either lost brutally, submitted or by clean UD...

Anderson Silva. Machida should go to middleweight.

Hopefully Dana doesn't stick to his word. Whatever happened to "whoever wins in the best fashion gets the shot". I also remember him maybe saying Hendricks would get a shot if he beat Koscheck? He changes his word all the time so who knows. But Machida was aggressive for like 20 seconds of the fight and doesn't deserve anything. If Gus wins, he should def get the title shot.
