If he defeats Jon Jones at UFC 159, Chael Sonnen says he has zero desire to allow Lyoto Machida to challenge for the light heavyweight title because the Brazilian "can't draw flies" to his fights, especially after his lackluster split decision win over Dan Henderson at UFC 159.

"Does Lyoto Machida deserve another title shot? Absolutely. Is he a great fighter? Absolutely. I'm in on the business; I'm in on the pay-per-view (PPV). So is Jon Jones, but neither of us want to fight him because he can't draw flies. That's the bottom line. He got booed tonight; he got booed in his last fight. I can't sellout an arena with you; I can't sell PPV's with you. I'm not giving him the shot. Alexander Gustaffson, Gegard Mousasi, step up and I'll take the winner."

Chael just doesn't want to get kneed in the ribs again.

Win or lose Chael would force Machida to fight, that's all i know. Not whatever BS game Machida was playing last night.

I'd like to see Machida fight Chael. That would make 2 TRT cheats that Machida would defeat.
