UFC “Hall of Famer” Randy Couture gives his thoughts on the light heavyweight clash this weekend at UFC 140 between current champion, Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida.
“Machida’s style was everything I expected it to be. I studied the tapes but he’s just hard to get a handle on. I certainly don’t thing Jon’s going to have an easy time of it catching up with him. He’s elusive, he’s a great athlete, he’s a tremendous counter-fighter and he has a lot of interesting tools. It was an interesting camp for me to prepare for him because he just does a lot of things differently to others guys that I’ve prepared for. Jon will find the same issues.”
“I don’t think it’ll be a walkover, I don’t think Jon will blow Machida’s doors off. But Jon does have everything firing for him right now; he’s long, he rangy, he’s a tremendous wrestler, he’s a tremendous athlete and he can strike with anybody. If Jon can get his hands on Machida he can take him down and it will be interesting to see how Lyoto deals with being under a guy like Jon.”

UFC legend, Dan Henderson, gives his thoughts on the upcoming UFC 140 clash this weekend between UFC champion, Jon Jones and number one contender, Lyoto Machida.
“I think obviously Jon Jones is probably the favorite in that one. With his style and his wrestling ability, he should be able to control the fight well. Lyoto likes to stay on the outside, and I think that’s probably not the opponent to do it against.
Lyoto’s real quick and he’s a little bit goofy. He’s got a nice straight left hand. He definitely could catch Jon Jones. I don’t think Jon Jones’ chin has really been tested much because he is hard to hit. Anything can happen in a fight, but I definitely see Jones picking him apart from the outside and probably taking him down and beating him up.”
When asked for his own chances against Jones, Henderson added:
“I think I’m a tough fight for anybody. If you’re in a fight with me, you’re definitely going to know you’re in a fight. I don’t know if really Jon Jones has felt that too much in his career. I definitely would test that out. I think style-wise I match up real well with him. That’s pretty much one of the last things I’ve got on my list for my career, to get a UFC title and keep it for a little while.”
