I personally had that fight as a draw myself. Round 1 was clearly 10-8 and rounds 2 and 4 were clearly Edgar. Rounds 3 and 5 were close if I recall and I think I gave 3 to Gray and 5 to Frankie.

Will be a great rematch although it will be difficult to duplicate how exciting that fight was. Really just a stacked card in general.

That kinda sucks. Rashad is the obvious one that deserves the next shot but what can you do? Machida hasn't done much recently to be elevated to this but he is, IMO, the most talented LHW after Jones, Rashad and Shogun for now.

Machida-Jones seems like it would be a weird fight. I don't see Jones getting Machida down easily (or maybe at all). Jones' striking, while varied and unpredictable, might not be as effective vs an elusive guy like Machida. I still see Jones, based on his athleticism, size and strength, eventually wearing Machida down and winning. Probably UD win for Jones? I dunno, Machida confuses me based on his past 3 fights.

I think Machida could fair the best of anyone so far. He's good at closing distance, landing, and getting back out. Think Jones will be able to clinch and get him down though.

I remember people telling me that Ryan Bader could beat Jones.

I remember reading a LOT, probably 40% of people picking Rampage to KO Jones.

Now I'm gonna have to listen to people thinking Machida can beat him.

Jones isn't losing this. Intriguing match up, yes...but Jones will win handily. He just has to get ahold of Machida. Machida is elusive, but has anyone even really touched Jones yet?

I believe Rashad has the best chance of the current contenders, but I do not think he will be the guy to do it either. Of course, anyone can catch Jones, but with that reach it will be far more difficult for someone to pull a Matt Serra on him.

I think i posted my thoughts here about machida being the only fighter that i could think of that has the capability to beat jon jones at this moment. I never thought they'd match up this fast though. As far as im concerned this is 50/50 fight. Both are unorthodox and are hard to figure out. I dont know how machida could win, via breaking knee or tibia maybe? Im sure he is looking at how to attack the lower body of jones without opening himself up for a take down. If jones wins, I bet he does it via spinning back elbow. When machida attacks with his punches, he has this erect stance that can be vulnerable to a surprise quick counter by the very long upper limbs by jones.
