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.
