UFC 140: Jones vs. Machi . . . WAIT, WHAT?!

This according to MMAFighting, which is a site I generally trust as full of professional reporters.  Veeery interesting and a potentially better match-up in my opinion.  I just did not see any way that Rashad Evans could defeat Jon Jones, there was not one aspect of the game I felt Evans was better at.  But Machida?  Now this is interesting . . . . The Dragon will be interesting because his counter-fighting style might match-up well with Jones.  Bones doesn't like to attack in a fury of rage like Shogun Rua does, rather its more surgical.  Machida's footwork is phenomenal. 

That said, I would bet my life on Jones and be comfortable with it.  But Machida, though by MMAmath standards might not be deserving of the title shot, presents a more interesting match-up.
