The backlash from the Chael Sonnen vs Jon Jones booking continued today, as former light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, took to twitter to voice his displeasure.
Lyoto Machida was thought to have earned a rematch with Jon Jones after knocking out Ryan Bader at UFC on Fox 4. However, that fight did not come to fruition and now “The Dragon” is expected to face off against Dan Henderson sometime in early 2013.
UFC officials have stated that the winner of the Henderson vs Machida bout will be proclaimed the number 1 contender to the light heavyweight strap. That said, I wouldn’t imagine that either Dan or Lyoto will be holding their breath.
