I meant to vote Machida, but clicked Rua instead.

But those are the two I would pick out anyway.

Rua will be a different animal entirely a couple more fights into this comeback from surgery.

Machida will test Jones in ways he hasn't been tested before because of his speed, movement and elusiveness.

Other than those two, the only guy I give a prayer is Hendo, because of his chin, wrestling credentials, and proven power.

I wouldn't make even any of these three a favourite against him though.
