    It was one question. You enough time to write this response but not enough time to answer a simple question? You have nothing.

    Jon didn't fight Machida after coming off of double knee surgery and with a broken hand. Chris has a big left hand and it was the one that was broken while he fought the guy. Even with a broken hand Weidman hurt Machida more than once and wobbled him with a standing elbow and hurt him with a couple punches. He outdid Lyoto's own footwork and his footwork is great (cutting the cage off from him for the bulk majority of the fight).

    Jon finished Machida but Machida is more suited for MW and not LHW. So there's that. Machida was never in the condition he's in now back then, he couldn't lead as good back then and he'd just sit around and wait to counter, and if he couldn't, he'd wait around some more. Weidman fought a superior version of Lyoto skill-wise and shape-wise, not to mention Lyoto is even faster at MW than he was at LHW. He's lightning at 185.

    Didn't you hear though? "Older, middleweight Machida is better than the Machida Jones faced. That's why he did better against Weidman than he did against Jones." <------- If you haven't see this, you will soon. EDIT: Looks like people are already making excuses.

    Hey Mr. MMA Math, get on your real account you little goof. You're a coward. As for "Bones" eating Weidman's food... :icon_lol: Your guy doesn't even have knockout power in his hands so kindly sit the fuck down. He's pillow fisted, awkward in movement, has terrible posture, awful footwork and he's not the Michael Jordan athlete that you fanboys seem to think he is. That's just keeping it real, junior.

    I just explained how Machida is more of a challenge now than when he was at LHW. You don't have to believe me though, go ask any analyst you choose that's studied Machida (Jack Slack, Connor R., A Guy). He's never looked better.

    You do realize Bones dropped Machida prior to choking him out right? something Weidman couldn't do.

    This says it all. Either great trolling or typical MMA fan.

    Clearly you didn't think about it much. Jones would destroy Weidman.

    For me it was the follow up troll post about McGregor just in case the OP was not high enough quality trolling:

    Weidman fought with a hairline fractured left hand. Jon had both hands healthy. His most powerful hand fighting technique, his left hook, was affected immensely. BTW, Phil Davis finished a younger Gustafsson, by some 4 years (closing in on 5 this spring). Jones couldn't finish him and took a beating while Phil didn't. Great logic, captain.

    If Vitor catches Weidman with a couple of shots like that early on, lights out.

    Him saying Jones would be a 10/1 favorite is funny shit and couldn't be further from the truth. Though all you need to do is look at his avatar to see how he thinks... "Bones KNOWS Victory"

    You have very good taste in fighters though, I must say, and you apparently have an eye for technical ability. McGregor and Weidman are two of my favorites as well. I recognize and acknowledge their skills often on here.
