Vitor V Lyoto would be a good fight, Weidman also. I think the next MW champion will be Rory Mac though. Weidman will go to 205 after he recovers from the beating that Anderson will give him.

AGreed. I have friends that say "well MAchida gave him the best fight". Perhaps they are right. But people get a little too carried away with the fact that Machida landed a punch. If you are that excited over that, odds are he has pretty little chance to actually win the fight.

Machida DID SO WELL in the 1st. Yet I think 2 out of 3 judges gave it to Jones.

I think even Jones commented on that saying "he landed one punch.." when people brought up that Machida had him "in trouble", but what are you going to do? People are going to hold onto things to make his fights seem more competitive than they are. You can't blame a Machida fan for wanting to believe in him. Landing one good punch doesn't always mean that much though. I can't count how many times Rogan has said "HE ROCKED HIM THERE! HE'S IN TROUBLE!" when the opponent being "rocked" didn't seem very fazed at all.

Psalm 30:5 "For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning."

9 reasons why Machida will be champ eh? 1 reason why he won't,
1. Bones will beat him in dominant fashion again.

Seriously, the only way Machida will be champ by the end of 2013 is if Bones moves up to HW.

Weidman wouldn't have anything for Machida. I would think that Machida would just take Vitor down but if he stood with him he might get caught. Nevertheless guys like Okami, Bisping, Munoz, Boetch, etcetera would get stomped. Belcher/Machida might be a good fight or Machida might run circles around him; I am not sure.

I think his BJJ is better so the ground wouldn't seem safe for Machida. It really isn't impossible to win rounds against Machida standing you just have to cut the octagon off with either leg kicks like Shogun or footwork and leading like Rampage. I don't know whether or not Belcher is capable of doing that so how well he would do is an unknown to me.
