During today's UFC 163 media conference call Lyoto Machida expressed himself about Daniel Cormier potentially cutting in line at 205, and getting a title shot, should be get past Roy Nelson on Aug 3.

“I believe that there’s a ranking and it should be followed,” said 'The Dragon'. "There are a lot of guys in line right now in the weight class to fight for a title. I’ve been waiting in line. There’s Glover Teixeira, there’s Phil Davis, so there’s a lot of guys in there in the mix.

“If he’s going to move down to 205, he’s going to need to put a couple of fights in, or at least have a significant win in a big fight. I don’t think it’s right for him to just come in and cut the line.  I think he’s going to have to show that he deserves that title shot."

Machida, currently on a two-fight roll since losing to Jon Jones in late 2011, fights Phil Davis at UFC 163 on Aug. 3. 

What do you think UG? If the undefeated Daniel Cormier beats Roy Nelson at heavyweight, can he cut the line at 205?

I agree, plus Danny boy hasn't beat a top 5 guy yet. Mir and Barnett are/ weren't top 5 Phone Post 3.0

Machida should drop to 185 and cut the line himself.

I think Bones summed it up best when he said something like DC needs to quit talking about dropping down to 205 and just do it already. Not a Bones fan, but he is right on point with this one. DC sounds like my fat uncle that always talks about losing weight.

What were Mir and Barnett ranked in HW at the time they fought? What about bigface?

I don't know what their rankings where at the time they fought, but I know Mir,Barnett and as you put it Bigface are all tough fighters.

bonerfart - Its not right for a fan to pay $60 to watch Lyoto fight...for anything, much less the belt.

Lmao.

Lyoto should think long and hard about Chuck Liddell's recent statement.

If it was up to me to arrange the card, he fights his way off the pre-lim cards and then has 1-2 dominating fights on a main card, maybe he should fight for a belt.

Point fighting is fucking stupid.

He isn't and doesn't deserve to be the #1 contender. Phone Post
He has some of the most impressive victories in the UFC's history. Rashad, thiago, bader, sokoudjou and couture all got destroyed by the dragon!!! Phone Post 3.0

Machida got dropped like a sack of taters and folded up like a lawnchair when Bones left him unconcious in the cage. 

 

We need fresh blood not the same guys in there.

JDS, Overeem, Cain, Werdum maybe (retired)Carwin. Idk just thinking off the top of my head. The heavyweight division is alot different then light heavy as far title challengers and tuff fights. Phone Post 3.0

Cormier is getting up there in age, a Olympian and undefeated. I'd be OK with him jumping the line.......,,,unless glover destroys bader and makes him look like a amateur. Phone Post 3.0

Lol...whatever man.

Here's a tip.

Order UFC select and watch every event from the beginning until 162 and then come back and argue your point. Phone Post
What does that even mean??? He destroyed rich Franklin and Stephan Bonnar too. Are you bitching because he doesn't finish every single fight? he finishes more than GSP or Edgar! Phone Post 3.0

i don't recall hearing Machida complain when Sonnen jumped up to LHW for the title...

oh, that's right-he doesn't really care, unless it affects him.


anyway, i'd rather watch Cormier than Machida......

"Since Lyoto was choked the hell out and dropped by Bones, he has fought as conservative as the pope. That's undeniable."

Have you ever watched lyoto fight before?

I'd rather see Cormier get the shot. Not a big fan of machidas style. It definitely works for him though. Phone Post 3.0

I love Machida but I disagree with him here. I don't feel like he's cutting line when the people he'd be cutting already got beat by Jones and are being pushed back in large part because they don't have anyone else that's established to put in there with Jones.

The only thing that's stupid is Dana promising him and whoever else a title shot and it not happening. But that's just kind of business as usual hype the fight stuff now though. Phone Post

↑ Bonerfart, Jake Shields and Clay Guida are probably more your cup of tea, right?
