Even if he wins the middleweight title...
UFC commentator Jon Anik dropped a little revelation: Lyoto Machida is looking for a rematch with Jon Jones, even if he wins the middleweight title in May. Anik told MMAjunkie that Machida would welcome a superfight with Machida after he faces Chris Weidman at UFC 173.
"I had a pretty revealing conversation with Lyoto in Los Angeles yesterday," Anik said. "It really seems like he wants to fight Jon Jones again. I mean, not that he's thinking about a return to 205 (pounds); he loves being at 185. But he just kept coming back to the superfight and the megafight, and it seems like he wants to fight Jonny ‘Bones' again."
