It's too early in Jones' career to throw him against Machida. And he's building steam, so he shouldn't be used as a sacrificial lamb to begin the road back to the title.

Also, I agree w/ many others, Machida wasn't "exposed." A weakness was found, but it's not like Kimbo... it's not a weakness that anyone can take advantage of.

i actually think jon jones's reach and length would stress machida out and he doesn't have enough power to really hurt jones

Bones could take him down and beat on him but he would get exposed pretty bad striking with Machida. His cardio has been questioned as well and Machida is a master of the art of decision so the longer the fight goes it should favor Machida.

I really don't think Bones is ready to beat any of the top guys except Rashad who he would ragdoll and murder with GNP. The guy doesn't have that many fights and is really young if he wins his next fight he should be taking on someone like Randy or the winner of Chuck/Franklin.

Let's be realistic for a second here fellas. Yes Jones is basically undefeated and his hype is at an all-time high (i love him just as much as the next guy) and Machida is coming off a controversial win followed by a devastating KO, but Jones is still not ready for a fight like this.
Machida would definitely win if they fought right now because he is very technical and accurate while Jones can be a bit sloppy at times (Machida will surely take advantage of that). Also, Jones has no experience against an elite fighter whereas Machida has beaten guys like Rich Franklin, BJ Penn, Shogun, Rashad, Thiago Silva, Tito Ortiz, etc. A big part of Jones's game is his great and unique takedown abilities but Machida has extremely good TDD and i cant see someone like Jones taking him down or even getting in close enough range to take him down for that matter.
Bottom line: if they fought now Machida would easily win but Jones is still very young and in time could pose a threat to Machida and whoever is the champ in the future.

I hope they fight in two years. Jon Jones needs to build his name and fight more. Cant just throw him with the Lions yet!
