So much this! Machida getting two title shots in less than a year off 1 fight win streaks?  He is the new Urijah.

 " it's not greatness, Jones is a HW beating up on smaller men." Why don't those smaller men stop working out their legs and let them atrophy a bit, and fight at 185 if that's all it takes to utterly dominate the best fighters in a division?

yeah its quite hard for me to get hyped about Jones/Machida 2...the first was one-sided and i dont see what Machida can do to really put Jones in danger..Jones is faster and longer than machida...that flashy karate shit doesnt work with Jones..
