Machida talks about rematching Jones next

August 6, 2012

The UFC light heavyweight belt will be disputed on September 1st, at UFC 151, when the current champion Jon Jones will have to face the experienced and tough Dan Henderson. And who will certainly be watching it closely is Lyoto Machida, who landed a nice punch on Ryan Bader’s face at UFC on Fox 4, knocking him out and getting a new chance at the title.

In “The Dragon’s” opinion, it does not matter who he will fight: “It doesn’t matter to me”. In case Jon Jones defeat Hendo, on what would be his fourth successful title defense, their meeting with be a rematch, since Lyoto was submitted on December of 2011, at UFC 140.

“I believe in myself to beat him up”, said Lyoto, confident, analyzing a possible rematch with Jones, during the post-fight press conference of UFC on Fox 4.

“He’s unpredictable. He comes different each time. Sometimes he kicks and sometimes he punches. I gotta train more Wrestling. My last camp for Jon Jones was good, but I gotta improve my Wrestling skills”, concluded Machida.
