im impressed with jones but
lets face it he caught shogun the first strike..
that was the beginning of the end for shogun he was badly hurt.
shogun is a type of guy who will eat some strikes to posibly counter you

biggest attribute of jones is his wrestling and reach
i give machida the technique
machida maybe the most fast lhw fighter in the division

This would be Jones fight to lose. He has all the advantages he needs to beat Machida. I have been quick to point out Machida's wrestling as being under-rated in all of his previous match-ups, but in this one, Jones clearly has the advantage. If Jones wants he shouldn't have a problem taking this fight to the ground and keeping it there and punishing Machida like he has every other opponent. If the fight does get back to the feet he needs to discard his unorthodox striking and pepper Machida with leg kicks and clinch whenever Machida choses to engage.

And Jones was supposed to be outstruck and/or submitted by Shogun. Come with something new that hasn't already been said.

My candid opinion is that Machida has one of the best chances to defeat JBJ. But JBJ is such a beast that I know he'll be heavily favoured. That's why I'm praying when that time comes Machida will be +300 or more. That's where I'll place a nice little bet on em.

This is what I am dreaming about every single day Mercy

I can only believe that Lyoto will be a heavy, heavy underdog at the bookies^^

I'm not even entirely sure what you are trying to say here. Rashad wins two fights in a row against one top 10 fighter and the other a top 5. Machida beats the guy who was not only a perfect match up for him, but also about 15 years older..this after two losses..and you think HE deserves a title shot more than Rashad?? Machida's a great, great fighter who on his best day would beat almost everyone on the LHW roster, but don't start saying he deserves a shot as much as Rashad. That's just hardcore nuttin'

And Rashad didn't receive his shot in the end. He's going to have to fight another top tenner to even get this shot. Machida's a great fight

I got Jones over everyone at 205 to be honest...he's just got such a great mixture of power and speed; any kick, elbow, weird whatever thing he does looks like it hurts even if it isn't on target.

Machida has the precision, and wisdom to beat Jones. Especialy since Jone's stand up is pretty weak, and Machida has amazing spacing.
