As he should be...
unfortunately I dont see him getting past Lyoto. His title shot is as good as gone.
I don't read much into this as I don't see Dan getting a hold of Machida with much and losing by split dec.
Oh, look, something that makes sense. Hm.
If Machida beats Hendo, a Goose win over Mousasi would get him the title shot.
If Dana is saying this, it means Dan is never going to get a title shot.
Good to hear. If only they could have dan fight for the title and chael fight machida.. it would make things perfect.

no doubt eh?! dana's prob still fucked up on meds from his ear procedure. if that's the case though, I'm hoping that hendo can get past machida.
Why is he fighting Machida then? I mean, Dan and Vitor IMO have the best chances of beating Jones (not counting Daniel because he is still HW) and Vitor either choked or just got beat plain and simple. Dan doesn't choke in big fights, he usually rises to the occasion. And unlike Vitor, Dan isn't "looking" for that big shot, he "makes" that big shot happen like a bulldozer.
That statement from Dana and $57 will get Hendo a cup of coffee and the right to watch UFC 162 Bones-Cormier.
Love Dan but wtf is Dana doing forgetting about Machida? Or does Machida not get the shot with a W? Maybe Dana has that much faith in an H bomb landing I have no idea.
But I will bet anything that Machida is one guy who could stand and trade with Dan for hours and not get clipped by something big.
His whole Martial Arts approach is self defence based and he is lightning quick compared to Hendo.
