    Machidas managment turn down Gus fight, waiting on title shot.

    Thats fair enough, Machida has beat Hendo and Bader to get his rematch with Jones and he is the only guy people seem interested in rematching him.

    Gus might have to wait a while on a fight but I think a number 1 contenders fight with Glover would be cool to see if he beats Te Huna.

    I honestly give Machida a half decent shot at beating Bones in a rematch, Id put him as the underdog for sure but at the heavier weight one strike can end a fight in the blink of an eye and Machida is quicker than Bones.

    Davis should make noise about a rematch with Gus if he gets by Magalesh.

    I don't think that will go down to well with Dana, As for Gus maybe Golver If he puts away Te-Huna next month.

    But what if he doesn't get offered a title shot?

    There are plenty of other 205lbers who could be given the shot instead, who haven't already lost to Jones and who haven't annoyed the UFC by turning down fights.

    Of all the LHWs, I still give Machida the best shot at beating Jones, but if say Lil' Nog beats Shogun (which he will), I would say that makes him the most deserving contender, especially considering he hasn't had a crack at Jones yet.
