Lyoto Machida vs Jon Jones.. what do you think?

I think this could make for a very interesting fight. Machida has been exposed in his last fight and I could honestly see Jones winning this fight. Thoughts?

I don't want to see Machida fight Jones, at all. I want to see Machida fight the loser of Rashad vs Rampage, or Lil nog(assuming he wins) or Forrest Griffin. Jones should fight Lil nog, loser of rashad vs rampage, griffin, or thiago silva.

I see Machida winning. Yes Shogun destroyed him but I have rewatched the fight a fw times and honestly Machida was winning (for 3 minutes lol) but ya he made 1 mistake. he landed his signature knee to the body (ortiz) and then after that he did his fencer diving in straight left. Too bad for him Shogun was waiting with a right.

Machida is still top 3 LHW in the world imo and would beat Jones.

Was GSP exposed when he lost to Serra. The skill level is obviously closer between Rua and Lyoto. It is not like Rua was kicking his ass all round (I think Lyoto was probably winning the round up until that flash shot). Anyone can get caught with a punch...look closely at where the punch from Rua landed. Almost the back of the head. Congrats to Rua, but this does not diminish Lyoto at all.

Machida has not been exposed. He was doing good till he got caught. MAchida just went up aganist someone who is better. That does not mean he is a b-level fighter. He is still the second best LHW. He should still be fighting his way up for another shot at the tittle. Dana will not risk Jon Jones right now. They want to build him up as much as they can till they send him in their with top tier competition.

Give Jon Jones two more quality fights and he will beat Machida. Give hime 16 more months and he will beat Anderson Silva.

Machida would still beat Jones, he's still one of the best fighters at LHW.

Jones only way of winning would be to take him down, and you saw how easily he tossed Shogun around in the clinch/grappling area.

Jones' striking is still a bit wild and sloppy to be facing a counter striker like Machida.
