If Andy were to go up to LHW, he would certaninly have to face several competitors befores having a chance at the title,
so when he reached the top of the ladder, probably Machida wouldn´t be the champ, so i don´t see Machida as the problem in going up to LHW.
The real problem is his age, the man has 34 yo, so being a fighter that relys on speed and agility he has to think in something that can be achieved quickly cause he will loose those eventually.
My guess is that the HW ladder is not as big as the LHW one, therefore, i see it as the only path for him to relly become a legend.
Go HW Andy and give the fans the show they deserve to see.
