I think Machida beat Davis and Rampage but lost the first Shogun fight.

Machida beats Shogun convincingly this time. Shogun doesn't have much, if anything, left. Maybe he should try to go down to 185 too.

I completely agree. People whine about that on here but if you watch the fight Machida landed better (and more) shots than Weidman in the first round (though not a lot happened either way). Weidman being busy missing punches and kicks doesn't make him win. I gave Machida rounds 1 and 4, Weidman rounds 2 and 3 and the fifth round was close, both had their moments.

He should but i don't believe he gives a shit, we never hear from him about his plans except to 'keep fighting' he's perfectly content to be a gatekeeper at LHW.

After Machida's performance against Wideman you could conceivably see him facing Jones again before he retires. He is still top tier and a tough fight for anyone in any division.

Shogun? GTFO, he has declined and hard and doesn't seem to be willing to put in the work to be top tier. He left his neck open all day for Chael, walked down Hendo with little footwork and head movement until he ate a brutal TKO, etc.

And that's what he will be if he doesn't change anything up. A has-been gatekeeper who makes his fans sadder and sadder.

kinda sad.
id love to see a 3rd fight may the best man win.
You sound delusional in your hate. Machida fans are happier than ever with him right now, he has been dominating at MW and just took the champ to a close fight in an awesome battle (against a guy who has destroyed everyone he has fought including Anderson Silva twice). You sound like you are talking about Shogun where he loses to everyone he fights in the top 10 these days.
