It'd be interesting to see what happens when they go to the ground, Machida's ground game is very underrated and Jones long limbs are always going to leave him open to submissions. Jones/Machida is the most interesting fight by far at 205 because Machida brings a more methodical style as opposed to the slugger/wrestler style Shogun, Rampage, and Rashad bring.
Another thing people seem to forget that Machida is very, very quick, probably the quickest guy at 205 the way he leaps forward with his punches, his combination on Rampage was very nice and it'd be interesting to see if Jones could handle something similar. Jones and Machida both would have to adapt which is where all the intrigue comes from.
