After emphatically dispatching highly-ranked contender Mark Munoz within the first five minutes of his middleweight debut, Lyoto Machida has once again become the talk of the town. Although it might be a little early to start labelling Machida the UFC’s next two-division champion, the fact that Anderson Silva’s competitive days are winding down suggests that “The Dragon” could at least be *fighting* for the 185-pound crown in the not-too-distant future.
But that is all speculation for the time being. What we do know is that Machida’s head kick KO of Munoz opened a lot of doors for the former light heavyweight champ at 185 pounds. Dana White has already hinted that a showdown between Machida and Vitor Belfort could be on the horizon and Gegard Mousasi recently called out Machida as well, so we got to thinking: Who Should Lyoto Machida Face Next at 185 pounds?
