Lyoto Machida: Senses Zuffa's Bias?

Lyoto Machida gives his opinion on the Jackson/Griffin fight...quote taken from Tatame.com

In my opinion, Quinton defeated Forrest, but they give it to Forrest. I think that now they are going to put him against Chuck Liddell to him to take the belt again. I think they prefer Chuck with the belt, he is a former champion, has more marketing and sell more”

From this statement....I think Lyoto realizes the business side of things...however, I don't think he is supportive of it.  He has become much more aggressive in his past two fights(believe it or not) and I think he understands that you have to be exciting to move into title contention.  Depending which fighter they can get to accept a fight with him...we may see a different Lyoto Machida in his next fight.  If it's not Wanderlei...and if Rampage doesn't get an immediate re-match with Forrest....Rampage/Machida would answer ALOT of questions AND would settle things in terms of who gets the next title shot.  It's almost impossible for anyone to have a boring fight with Rampage Jackson. 

“I think Anderson is going well at any category. He is fast and very technique, I think this is his difference”

“I had never thought about that. He is a very good friend and helps me a lot. He is a little much older than me and always gives me tips, so I don’t want to face him”

Machida also comments on Anderson Silva's move to 205...and his desire to not face the 185 champ.  Now that would be a technical standup battle.
