Machida wants title shot, not Gustafsson
Lyoto Machida’s manager, Jorge Guimaraes, spoke to Fighters Only and expressed a lack of interest in fighting the Swede.
“Lyoto is on stand-by list waiting for the winner of Jon Jones vs Chael Sonnen,” said Guimares. “I think it is almost impossible for Chael to win this bout but anything may happen. A fight is a fight but it has already been scheduled, there’s no history about it.”
“Lyoto is the number one contender and he is only waiting to see who is going to be the winner of this fight. He is not convinced about Jones… he is not convinced from that loss.”
“The fight between Jones and Sonnen is going to happen now, it doesn’t make sense to fight Alexander. We’re almost there. If it were a little before, this fight could have already happened, but he just fought… and Dana White has made it clear that Lyoto is the number one. We’ll be waiting.”
