Who's next for Machida?

He didn't look too bad tonight IMO!!! Personally, I would like to see Machida fight either Shogun or Wanderlei but who would you like to see him go up against next?

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

He's always been impressive, he does have wins over BJ Penn, Stephan Bonnar and Rich Franklin..

Yeah, although the wins over Penn (who fights at 155 and 170) and Franklin (185) are not so impressive considering the strength advantage he must have had. Why the heck was he fighting Penn? Was Penn way out of shape or was Machida a little dude at one time?

Yeah I really liked the Machida fight. I dont care if people think he is "exciting". He imposes his will on other fighters and takes very little damage. He looked great in the Nakamura fight and I hope he gets a high profile fight next.

Franklin used to fight at LHW and he's a freaking massive MW.

Don't put Wanderlei or Shogun in there against him. Honestly, I think it could be bad for them.
