let be realistic for one second yes Jones is sick and raw but he is not ready for Machida. Just because Machida lost to shogun does not mean he is garbage and is not above the talent pool in LHW. So far Jones strength is his take down GNP and unpredictable striking. Machida will adjust and be a better striker. Hell jones can;t take him down, he may have lost one fight but machida take down defence is unreal.

Machida's style is tailor made to beat Jon Jones. Bones is only effective if he gets a hold of you, but he's very reckless in doing so. Jones doesn't have the striking abilities to distract Machida from his grappling, so Machida could just do his thing and test JJ's chin a bit. Machida also wouldn't have had to worry about leg kicks, so he can use whatever stance he likes unlike switching from traditional to southpaw after every leg kick. If Bones manages to get a hold of Machida in some way unimaginable (at least to me), Lyoto would be in trouble though. He can't use his footwork on the ground and as far as I remember we still haven't seen him on his back much. Still I think Lyoto could avoid JJ's wrestling and get the W.

Jones vs Machida

I can't see Machida beating Jones, the style match up doesn't really favor Lyoto. Machida benefits when he fights an aggressive fighter that he can counter attack which isn't Jon Jones, yes he will attack but not enough aggression to open him up enough for Machida to score heavily. Jones is too talented and comes from too smart of a camp to make mistakes that prior fighters have made, plus he can learn from ex teammate Rashad Evans to not under estimate Machidas power.

If your feeling my perspective check out my blog at www.mikecaulo.com/blog for more articles on fighting, interviews, nutrition and training.

Machida and Rampage both would likely remind Jones that he's still a kid.

Jones would walk through him like he has his last top ranked opponents, ask Shogun what he thinks how that fight would go - he's fought them both and would know more than anyone.

Either it's a 1st/2nd round route by JBJ or Machida actually methodically picks him apart. I really think Machida can do it.

I think Jones would own Machida. Shogun beat Machida by being aggressive and attacking. Bones dismantled Shogun by doing predominantly the same. I'm not using those example as MMAth, I'm going by fight style. That, and Bones is clearly just a freak athlete. I don't see any of those flashy spinning elbows or backfists landing, because Machida is still a ******* ninja and superquick, but the distancing would be way different than what Machida is use because Bones has 10 inches on him and most of his previous opponents. And that means that many of the strikes that Machida was able to avoid in the past, would land easily and probably have devastating result.
