If Shogun gets a title shot, then Machida needs to get a title shot.

    Shogun has 3 fights in the last 4 years against fighters on losing streaks.

    Machida just snapped someone's undefeated record this year. And then went on to crane kick Vitor Belfort, who is one of the best striker the UFC has ever seen.

    It is blasphemous that Shogun can potentially get a title shot before Machida.

    How can you give a guy so inactive a title shot? Let Machida move up and get his.

    Machida isn't a UFC level fighter anymore.

    Pretending that Machida was still in the UFC, though:

    Machida got tossed around and just utterly dominated against Yoel, Rockhold, and Brunson in a way that made it clear that it was just dangerous to have him in there. He doesn't even have a 10% chance of winning, not even by flash KO, against any of those guys.

    Shogun hasnt been completely thrashed like that except against Jon Jones. He's still looked like a human or a competitor in all of his other losses in ways that I wouldn't mind seeing rematches. Because even if he would probably lose again, maybe he might somehow win. I could see it.

    I love Machida but... Anders was still green and Belfort has been pretty shitty for a few years. Once he got banned from using testostaronay his world class striking is pretty useless

    Still, I wish the best for Machida and Shogun, they are outside their primes.

    Shogun might be on his way to Bellator as well.

    He has a win over their MW champ, and KTFO their LHW champ. Easy (Bader) and better money.
