Seems like people complain about the line every time that new fight is announced these days. The bookies are in it to make money not jock your favorite fighter. Don't worry guys. If everybody else is a confident as you are that the odds are out of whack, then money will start flying in on Machida immediately and the line will move.

A 1 in 5 chance? They're saying Lyoto has a 20% chance of winning... Seems generous.

Gonna wait til closer to fight time when the chumps all bet on Machida so I can put a big bet on Jones and win some easy money while these dreamers post about how dumb they were to put their bets on.I love the pissdrinker but Jones is gonna win imo.

If anybody can dethrone Bones its Machida. Really dont see Machida getting taken down,and there's NO WAY Bones outstrikes him on the feet. Bad matchup for Bones in my opinion.
