Only the mysterious workings of the Gods of MMA can explain how Alexander Gustafsson and Lyoto Machida have ended up as the rival contenders for the light heavyweight championship.
Lyoto Machida beats two very reputable fighters, which would immediately secure him a shot at Jon Jones had he not been defeated by Jones in December of 2011. Because he’s already faced Jones fairly recently, it’s only right that Machida should have to wait in line so another light heavyweight with a similar recent streak of accomplishments can have his chance first. Unless of course, Machida picks up a third win and/or there isn’t another fighter who can boast two victories over top-tier fighters.
Countering Machida’s second shot at Jones was supposed to be Alexander Gustafsson, who should have also beaten two reputable fighters by now had it not been for his withdrawal from his bout with Gegard Mousasi.
Gustafsson needs a second big wins to earn his first title shot and Lyoto needs a third to earn...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
They have to make this fight between Machida and Gustafsson. It’s the only fight that makes sense. Then the winner will face Jones when he is healthy.
Lyoto Machida is fan friendly
Machida gives “The Rock” a UFC shirt
The doctor on UFC tonight explained Jon’s gruesome injury and informed us that he would need about 6-8 weeks to recover. Nice to hear this but I still hope they make a number one contender fight between Lyoto Machida and Alexander Gustafsson.
PS: These Shoes are ridiculous even for Helwani.
Jon Jones post fight interview

After seeing UFC 159 this past weekend and seeing Jon Jones break his toe , you probably thought you’ve seen everything and then something like this happens.
“At WOCS 25 in Brazil, a fighter was in his corner between rounds getting worked while a member of the production crew of WOCS was reapplying glue to a decal on the fighter’s banner. Some of the glue dripped down from...
Until they fight, which in my opinion, may never happen, the argument over the next few years will be Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva. Over the last few years, I was convinced Anderson would have his way with Jones, but after watching Jones fill into a heavyweight frame and throw around Vitor and Chael around like kids, maybe Anderson wouldn’t fare so well against the 25-year-old...
Jon Jones has pretty much wiped the floor with some of the best fighters in the world. Anderson Silva has too. The debate will rage on until the Super Fight is made, but it looks like the young Jones has grown up a lot in a short amount of time. When asked if he has surpassed Anderson on the P4P list and this is how he replied:
“No,” replied the 25-year-old New Yorker....
UFC Tonight analysts Kenny Florian and Chael Sonnen attempt to explain the the gruesome toe injury suffered by UFC light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones during his UFC 159 title defense against Sonnen.
The champ suffered a compound fracture on his toe, which he did not notice until the post-fight interview with color commentator Joe Rogan.
Watch the explanation below (Warning: not for...
This thing looks like a gut bomb that I would want to avoid. Not even sure what this has to do with Jon Jones. The guy making this sh*t should probably stay far, far away from eating such items. Thanks to MiddleEasy for the heads up.

After thrashing Chael Sonnen this past Saturday at UFC 159, reigning light heavyweight king Jon Jones tied Tito Ortiz (pictured) for the most successful 205-pound title defenses in Octagon history.
While Jones is still one win away from solidifying his spot as the promotion’s most decorated champion in the division, UFC president Dana White believes Jones has already surpassed...
Daniel Cormier and the UFC appear to be on two different pages. Cormier seems steadfast in staying at heavyweight, at least for the time being while the UFC would like him to drop to 205. Dana White has upped the stakes by offering Cormier a fast track at the championship.

UFC 159 had more than a few memorable moments. It was a card built around West Linn's Chael Sonnen, a middleweight fighter coming off of a loss, who skillfully campaigned his way directly into the cage against light heavyweight champion Jon Jones. The day before the event, Nick Catone (9-4) was hospitalized due to dehydration, a result from his strenuous weight cut. His fight...
