Actually Bones compliant about a Machida rematch. His excuse was that Machida was the weakest ppv draw out of all of his opponent. He went on to state that fighting Machida present a higher risk than the reward

Exactly.

Also, Machida was a late replacement against Jones, and Jones still said Lyoto hit him harder than any other fighter ever did before the Gus fight.

More importantly, is there anything in that quote that anyone would disagree with? I mean WTF?
I object to his excessive use of the phrase "You Know"

Yeh that's a good point. He might not like his chances against Johny, and wants to take the easy route to make sure that he holds the gold. Not that it would be confirmed in any way.
