Soares: Still undecided on what's next for Machida


"We've spoken with the UFC," Soares told Ron Kruck on Friday's new edition of AXS TV's "Inside MMA." "Lyoto doesn't want to spend too much time outside of the octagon. He wants to get in there and stay busy. He doesn't want to wait too long."

"Chael vs. Jon Jones is the next fight," Soares said. "We have to first of all see how that fight turns out. Then we have to see if the winner comes out of there healthy."

"We can't really make any decisions until after that (Jones vs. Sonnen) fight happens because when you look at the rankings, and you look at the top-10 fighters, all of the guys that make sense for Lyoto fight have fights already," Soares said.

Honestly I could watch machida & anderson sparring for hours. Shame they will never fight such an intriguing stylistic match up.
