One of the things I love the most about the internet is that it opens up a lot of doors for artists that would never normally be open. You don’t need a TV or Movie Executive to “green light” your project, you can just put it up on YouTube and share it with the world.
The two men who had both been listed as top challengers for Jon Jones, are now being expected to meet to determine which one is next in line for a title shot.
Sep 14, 2012 – A light heavyweight battle between Dan Henderson and Lyoto Machida is in the current UFC plans based on a comment made on Thursday by Dana White at a UFC luncheon.
In discussion of Machida turning down the originally announced shot at champion Jon Jones at UFC 152 on Sept. 22 in Toronto, White mentioned that he felt Machida made the wrong decision. He said that instead of getting the title shot, now Machida (18-3) will be matched up with Henderson (29-8), and would have to win that fight to be back in line for a title shot. Another UFC source confirmed that was the direction the promotion was aiming.
“[Machida] should have taken the fight. We’ve seen it, history always repeats itself. Look how long it took Rashad (Evans) to fight for the title again. So you wanted to fight Jon Jones, you climbed up to the title fight and you don’t take it. Now you’re fighting (expletive) Dan Henderson. Now you might not even get to the (expletive) title again. You lose to Dan Henderson you’re not anywhere near Jon Jones,” White said.
With Strikeforce Challengers 20, UFC 139: Shogun v. Hendo and Fedor/Monson all taking place this weekend Bellator 58 had an uphill climb to stand out. Was it better than UFC 139? I dont’ think so but I’d definitely say it was a pretty good card with some great stories going on like Michael Chandler (above photo) taking out Bellator’s Lightweight ace Eddie Alvarez to take the Lightweight title, Hector Lombard adding another body to his trail of victims in his 20-fight win streak, Marlon Sandro scoring a rare submission win and Jessica Aguilar getting revenge on the person who beat her in her first MMA fight Lisa Ellis-Ward.
