Hm. I don't see why that fight makes sense for 2 reasons.
1. Machida is coming off a win and Rashad a loss. In fact, Rashad has lost his last two and Machida has won his last two. I don't see how this earns Rashad a rematch on a fight he not only lost, but got finished in.
2. Machida beat a high ranked opponent and Rashad lost to a lower ranked opponent. Lyoto either maintains #2 or moves to #2, whereas Rashad drops to probably #5 or #6.
Dana "said" (ha) that Lyoto is fighting Jones next. Even if Machida pushes to fight against another fighter before Jones, Rashad doesn't make sense.
Them both coming off a loss, Hendo makes sense for Evans.
