"We're going to have to watch Machida's speed, and his distancing is key. He's also a very creative fighter. He's very quick on the in and out. He's going to try to get past Jon's length, I'm sure, with his jumping in and jumping out style and moving side to side. We have to be extremely careful with that. He does have one-punch power, so we need to be careful of his power. He'll be very motivated because once somebody supposedly has that stature that Jon has now of this invincible machine, everybody trains really, really hard -- partly out of fear, partly out of ambition -- to take you down. I fully expect us to fight the best Machida that has ever fought, and hopefully we'll be able to get around that and those problems."

Really hope Machida makes this a great fight! I could see both not making a move for a round!
Even if Machida loses I hope he answers some questions on how to beat Jones.

NEXT to 'shwa, lol. Whitby, much nicer than the dirty 'shwa.

I've gotta say though, I was in Hamilton once in my life (A week for work) and I got in my first fight ever and saw more crackheads than I've ever seen before. Must be wild living there.

Machida is the toughest test Jones will have had so far. I would say Shogun, but he looked like crap in their fight (physically.)

His style is going to be something entirely new for Jones and its a style that is uniquely suited to deal with Jones' number one asset...his reach.

That said, I'll probably still be picking Jones. You don't bet against a freight train.

Machida turtles up at the sight of a a leg twitch and Jon Jones pounces on Machida but is disqualified for hitting Machida in the back of the head..... Machida later thanks Matt Hamill for helping him prepare for Bones...... Frank Dux has been working with Machida.....

Jon Jones' puzzle > Machida puzzle



Jon Jones reach should solve any puzzle Machida has with his current style...even with his head back...

When we went to Toronto my parents always used to refer to Hamilton as Mordor.

Jones is going to toss Machida around. Easy win IMO
