A few months back former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida came under heavy criticism for saying he wanted 'Anderson Silva money' to take a fight on short notice against Rashad Evans.
There was a lot more to the situation that simply wanting money, but Machida made his choice and now gets an even bigger opportunity in December.
On Thursday, the UFC announced that Machida would face 205lb champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 140 in Toronto.
