Machida will have problems with the reach of Jones. He’s so used to springing in and out with his offense because he gets out of the way of strikes within closed quarters. Unfortunately for him, he is battling the guy with the longest reach in the UFC. The unorthodox striking of Jones might not be fully displayed because of the style that Machida has, but it doesn’t mean he won’t dominate. I think Jones might use strikes to tag Machida and then going closer and utilizing his wrestling. Machida has a chance, though, but I don’t see Jones losing anytime soon.

This one will be very interesting, i think Lyoto will be his toughest test on LHW.

This would be interesting if Machida had 10″ more reach. I don’t see him catching Jones with anything significant. Best if Jones went to HW, all his title shots with the current contestants will be very easy and predictable at 205.

i don’t see jones losing either but moving to heavyweight? after defending the title at least 5 times in dominating fashion maybe, but i don’t see any reason to do that right now. If you’re that young and that good i guess you want to build a legacy and therefore its best to stay at light heavyweight for a while and make the move later. at least that’s my opinion. at least first smash evans.

u guys forget that machida is really hard to touch.. he is much more technical than jones too.. I am machida all the way

There is no one left after evans at 205. He is way above everyone else but his chin has not been tested because no one could hit him so far.

Machida is much faster.

Machida will have to use his sumo and unorthodox takedowns to deal with his reach disadvantage

I know this is off topic, but I thought ebersole was fighting rory mcdonald, what happend there. Rory is on a tare. Anyway eventually gotta see silva Vs. jones. Not jones going to heavyweight or GSP vs. silva but Jones Vs. Silva. Obviously he needs to win at least 3 more fights for that to be brought up and Silva has to get past Sonnen but it would be a sick fight to watch.

I see Machida having problems with the reach and wrestling. Machida might do well with his counter striking since Jones likes to be flashy and aggressive. It should be a great fight. That’s all I care about.
