I actually think Sonnen has a better shot against Silva than he does Machida.

I think Machida is still and underdog against Jones, but see an upset in the making.
Baders MMA wrestling is INCREDIBLY overrated. And that was Coutures last fight.

Look at how Jones took Machida down with ease. Thats most likely the scenario that will replay if he fights Chael.

Anyway its a fight iv been wanting for a long time just to prove to people that Machida does not have god like TDD.

Well I don't care what anyone says I have (blind) faith in Machida as the man to dethrone the champ.

Realistically I still think in two fights time Jones will still be LHW champ... Now back to my dream world.

Jesus Christ, they're doing everything to make me root against Jones. Give him somebody I'm not a fan of for crying out loud.

Sonnen is awful at LHW and I would be very surprised if Machida didn't dominate him. With that said, it will be a non issue once JBJ destroys Sonnen.

Kind of BS Machida won the fight and is stealing a title shot. He should have lost to Hendo for the same reason he lost to Rampage....he didn't push the pace at all. Of course he is going to land a bigger strike when he's just standing there and his opponent has to come at him 100% of the time. If Machida's opponent did the same thing, everyone would be standing around for 15 minutes.

this does not interest me at all. Lyoto will lose again, he has shown no improvements at all since the first fight.

I don't know why people are upset that machida is getting a title shot? The man technically secured it August 4, 2012 when Dana said he has the next shot. Jones vs Machida two is interesting, but I think Jones will take it again, as good as Machida is, Jones's athleticism and physical gifts will win the fight.

As for the Henderson fight, Henderson knew what to expect, he was watching the man doing his thing. Henderson should has got reckless and charge Machida when his back was against the fence. He did nothing from the top, got tripped a bunch of times, and Machida was hitting him when he choose to. It was a horrible fight, but Machida clearly won that point contest.

Machida would destroy Sonnen in my opinion, I would love to see that fight just so Machida can say he destroyed all three top guys from that Team Quest camp. Randy and Hendson were like a deer caught in a headlight, Chael Sonnen would get beat easily by Machida, but he probably wouldn't make that fight as he'll likely retire after Jones destroys him.
