    I dont think Machida would pass up the chance if he saw an opening. He would be tempted to go for another Ryan Bader style KO.

    If machida gets the rematch I think he won't be so aggressive this time. He'll probably try to frustrate Jones and pick his shots more wisely. Although it may not be as exciting, I think it would be a great tactical battle.. I'm all for it if nobody else pops into the picture. I hope mousassi beats goose so he can one day fight for the title.

    That would be an interesting matchup. Here's the UFC's top ten and how I feel Machida would match up with each of them.

    Champion :Jon Jones

    1.Lyoto Machida - I'm not sure why he's ranked #1 but if he is, he should be next in line for the title (No matter how uninterested I am in seeing a rematch)

    2.Alexander Gustafsson - If he gets past Mousasi it would make sense.

    3.Dan Henderson - I had Hendo winning that fight and I think he should be Fighting Jones.

    4.Glover Teixeira - When he beats Te-Huna it would be a solid fight.

    5.Antonio Rogerio Nogueira - They train together so there is no way in hell

    6.Mauricio Rua - See as how Shogun has been doing, a trilogy wouldn't make much sense right now.

    7.Rashad Evans - If he gets past Hendo I would say he is still a win away from a rematch with the Dragon.

    8.Phil Davis - I think it would be a great fight if he can get past Vinny

    9.Ryan Bader - Nope

    10.Gegard Mousasi - I like it if he beats Gustafsson

    Note: UFC's rakings are pretty fucked up seeing as how the guy challenging for the title, and possibly the most intriguing fight at LHW for Machida isn't even ranked at LHW.

    Im excited for a Jones vs Machida rematch. Machida has done better than any other opponent of Jones and his style matches up well. Theres 2 other possible contenders... Goose and Teixeira.

    Soares: Still undecided on what's next for Machida

    Soares: Still undecided on what's next for Machida - Mixed Martial Arts News

    "We've spoken with the UFC," Soares told Ron Kruck on Friday's new edition of AXS TV's "Inside MMA." "Lyoto doesn't want to spend too much time outside of the octagon. He wants to get in there and stay busy. He doesn't want to wait too long."

    "Chael vs. Jon Jones is the next fight," Soares said. "We have to first of all see how that fight turns out. Then we have to see if the winner comes out of there healthy."

    "We can't really make any decisions until after that (Jones vs. Sonnen) fight happens because when you look at the rankings, and you look at the top-10 fighters, all of the guys that make sense for Lyoto fight have fights already," Soares said
