I like Machida, but if he comes in the way he did against Rampage or Dan Henderson, Jones will eat him alive.

You'll have to explain what you mean here. Other than a slip on the mat Machida won every minute of that and on any knowledgable scorecard won all three rounds.

Because Bones isn't a 42 year old man with stubby limbs. He is the opposite. Machida isn't going to be able to hop around and win a pts contest vs. Jones.

HTH

I thought he was getting a title shot. Why would he fight Jones when Chael will have the belt?

Why would he fight for the belt after Gustaf wins impressively and rightfully gets the next shot?

Please don't cheer for Chael! Nothing against you LL but you've been consistently cheering for the fighter who ends up on the worse end in the last big fights. You're a Jones fan.

This. If you truly love Chael Sonnen, you'll cheer for Jon Jones.

Machida should turn the script and attack. It'll confuse em. It's always easier to stalk, but when you're put on the defensive you're reactive. Everybody knows what the LHW holder does. He runs backwards with his hands and arms held out. Therefore I would like to see a flying armbar or see his (Machida) sumo clinch and trip takedown while on the offense. We've never seen the LHW title holder on the ground yet.

Machida won't be able to play defensive forever. We've learned this in the second round. Stretch Armstrong covers too much ground.

Machida by KO 2nd round.
