Machida earned it by beating Dan Henderson...
Dana White spoke last night about Lyoto Machida's win over Dan Henderson at UFC 157 and more. Check out the highlights:
On Machida likely earning himself a title shot: "He just beat the No. 1 contender, which would make him the No. 1 contender."
On the fight being close: "Lyoto took some big shots from Dan, and Dan took some big shots from Lyoto. It wasn't a barnburner. It wasn't the most exciting fight you've ever seen. You won't be writing stories about this fight until the end of time, but Lyoto won the fight. He beat the No. 1 contender. He beat Dan Henderson."
Henderson on his status: "In my mind, I thought I did enough to win the fight, but it was my fault. I don't place the blame on the judges. I should have been more aggressive. I let him fight his fight a little too much...I'm not done by any means. I still have goals I want to reach in this sport, and I want to fight as soon I can. I'm ready to go in June or July. I didn't have the best last few months, but I feel really a lot better, and I want to be really active this next year."
