Belcher wants tattoo bet with Bisping
Alan Belcher promises that he'll get a tattoo of something that's close to Michael Bisping's heart if Bisping can take him out quickly at UFC 159. But will Bisping go for what The Talent wants him to do if it's Belcher that gets the quick finish?
UFC 157's Lyoto Machida interested in another fight before likely title shot
After beating Dan Henderson (29-9 MMA, 6-3 UFC) via split decision, Lyoto Machida (19-3 MMA, 11-3 UFC) said he's healthy and could fight in three months.
But the ex-champ is in no rush to meet the winner of an upcoming title bout between champ Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen, which takes place in April at UFC 159.
"Let's see what happens in that fight and the timeline that they come up with and if nobody gets injured," Machida on Monday told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio).

Dan Henderson: “(Lyoto Machida) Did a Good Job Not Fighting”
Dan Henderson felt he did enough to get the decision nod against Lyoto Machida in the co-main event of UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche on Saturday. Ultimately, he lost to Machida by split decision.
“In my mind, I thought I did enough to win the fight, but it was my fault. I don’t place the blame on the judges. I should have been a little bit more aggressive. I let him fight his fight a little too much,” said Henderson during the post-fight press conference.
