Lyoto Machida asks for better title shot criteria in the UFC, wouldn't avoid fight with Anderson Silva
Lyoto Machida prefers not to complain about a possible delayed title shot if Anderson Silva beats Nick Diaz on January 31, at UFC 183. However, "The Dragon" told Tatame.com.br that he's confused about the UFC criteria and asked for more specific rules for everyone to understand how a title fight is earned. "I can't say if it's fair or unfair. Anderson has a big history behind him, his not a nobody. If Dana White says that he will fight for the title, I won't contest. I just think that the criteria should be stronger and better defined but we have to move on. I'm not a guy to be complaining, I like to focus on my work." Lyoto also says that he would accept a fight with Anderson but doubts it would be a possibility in the near future. "Everyone asks me if I would face him but it's a bout far away of happening. Of course I would. As a professional, I would do it. The audience would like to watch. But it's a fight out of context and to me it isn't going to happen, so I don't like to talk about."

Here’s an uncomfortable thought: Imagine if Dennis Siver wins…
Back at UFC 157, Liz Carmouche had one hell of a dilemma. She was going up against the Creator of Women’s MMA in the UFC, Ronda Rousey. Carmouche was fighting for the inaugural women’s bantamweight belt because Rousey existed. Should she defeat Rousey, Carmouche would effectively tear down the very eco system that sustained her and everyone else in her category. In other words, if Carmouche was successful that night in early 2013, she would ruin everything. That’s a lot to block out as you prepare for a fight. And that’s sort of what Dennis Siver is going through as he gets set to face Conor McGregor at UFC Fight Night 59 Sunday in Boston. McGregor is not only the Gateway to Ireland, but the very fire and vitality of the featherweight division. As he said during a spot on SportsCenter this week, he’s not the Next Big Thing, he is the Big Thing. Siver is a one-man Washington Generals, a warm body to perpetuate the myth of Conor McGregor as McGregor rolls headlong towards a title shot against Jose Aldo.
