Machida? He was a dead body after Jones was done with him....

I like him the best out of the 4. I really enjoy Machida's fighting style.

And in case you hadn't noticed, all 4 of these guys have already been massacred by Jones. At least Machida was competitive for a round, which is something none of the others can say.

True, but I want to see Shogun in with Jones again since Shogun was in pretty bad shape in the last one. I'm not a Shogun nuthugger or anything but the past has shown that Shogun after layoffs and injuries is usually pretty far from his in-shape self.

Winner gets a title shot*

How the hell could you sell a Brandon Vera title shot?

Honestly, I just think this is UFC's third attempt at finally saying goodbye to Vera for good. Nobody's giving Vera a chance in hell.
That's the only way I can rationalize this. Honestly he hasn't looked good since 2006, even his victories afterwards have not impressed.
As a fellow countryman of Vera's, I can only wish him the best, and hope for a comeback, but realistically this is not looking good for him.

True - but Machida is also the ONLY fighter that may have even won a round against Jones over the past year.

Well if that doesn't warrant a title shot I don't know what does....

Well, assuming that Jones beats Hendo in dominant fashion, then in less than 2 years he'll pretty much have beaten the top 5 challengers in the division while losing maybe one round between them.

Gustafsson is still green and needs a signature win.

Davis was outclassed by Rashad.

So who else is left?

It's not like Jones is doing a Frankie Edgar style "spend three years fighting two guys" run. He's fighting very frequently and taking the best possible challenges. He's just cleaned out a very competitive division ridiculously quickly.

So one of four guys that Jones already smashed gets the next title shot? That ought to be fun.

The obvious choice. Shogun looked like ass in a fight that he should have been totally dominant in. I say give Shogun to Gus. If Gus wins, then he has a big name under his belt, if he loses, you can give Shogun a title shot.
