As it currently stands, UFC President Dana White has declared Lyoto Machida the promotion's current No. 1 contender at light heavyweight. But if the division's champ isn't cleared to fight until the end of the year, "The Dragon" has another plan in mind.

seems like a waste of a good contender in a division that needs any possible warm body to fight for the title.

I think Gustaffson, Machida and Glover should all get easy fights and wait for their shots at Jones in the next 2 years. The LHW and HW divisions are growing too slowly to support 2-3 new contenders every year. If they have anyone who has legit contender status they shouldnt squander it by making them fight each other.

I know that goes against the more traditional idea of contenders fighting each other but there really is a lack of guys on the horizon right now after those 3 I mentioned.
