    ďI think with this next victory that Iíll have, I will be the next contender, for sure. I have some keys on how to win Jon Jones. I was very close [to] the victory against Jones. Maybe if somebody gives me a rematch, I can get that.Ē

    In a recent interview with sherdog.com, former UFC light-heavyweight champion revealed that he believes a win over Phil Davis at UFC 163 will get him a rematch with Jon Jones for the UFC strap.

    I'll admit I've only seen the fight once,but I don't recall Machida being very close to victory.

    In round 1, Machida had Jones visibly frustrated due to beating Jones to the punch and landing more flushly.

    I don't think he had Jones that frustrated. Jones has been destroying everyone, Machida was doing ok in the first and Jones was having a bit of trouble finding his range, but I don't think he was even close to giving Jones problems.

    Big deal, Machida landed a few punches, if that was any other fighter, no one would have said that Machida was close to victory, it is just being blown out of proportion.

    Bonnar hands down. People forget the Bonnar fight but he actually had Jones in real trouble in the 3rd round. If that was a five round fight there is a real good chance Bonnar would have pulled it off because Jones was dead on his feet in the 3rd. Everyone the next day started to question Jones' cardio.

    But I have no interest in seeing Machida v. Jones again. Because it will be the same fight every single time. Machida has to fight perfect to beat Jones for 5 rounds. All Jones has to do is put Machida on his back once and it is over. Sure Machida might win 1 or even 2 rounds. But then Jones will take him down, beat him up and submit him or the ref will pull him off. Repeat 100 times if they fight 100 times. Machida just has a shitty style when it comes to Jones.

    Striking-wise.... noone.

    Belfort took Jones' strikes with flatfooted movement after that armbar attempt.

    I don't particularly care for either of these guys but if Machida wins he deserves another shot.
