Machida V Jon Jones

Based on this thread:http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc/90697-i-...est-lhw-3.html There is some GREAT discussion on a Jones V Machida match-up but I wanted to create a thread with a poll so we could get some quantitative outputs around it from MMA forum.

Who wins?

As long as Machida can keep hisdistance and pick Jones apart and staying unpredictable i see him taking it.

Brock Lesnar the baddest man on the planet?..... sure he is

Keeping your distance, which is Machida's specialty, will be very hard to do against somebody who has the longest reach in the UFC. Jon Jones will push the pace with his superior athleticism and aggressively punish Machida the same way he did to Shogun and the same way Shogun did to Machida.

this

if jones didn't have that insane reach, I'd give it to Machida, but he'll never stand far enough.

I still think Machida can pull it off, but with lots of work and some change in his style.
