Lyoto Machida gets a title shot
Quinton "Rampage" Jackson will not be Rashad Evans' first defense of his light heavyweight title. Jackson is expected to undergo surgery to treat a jaw injury he suffered in preparation for his fight with Wanderlei Silva, according to FiveOuncesofPain.com.
Lyoto Machida definitely deserves a title shot, even though most don't find him to be an exciting fighter. How are people feeling about a Rashad Evans v. Lyoto Machida main event at UFC 98? It's not quite Brock Lesnar v. Frank Mir but it should be a very intriguing bout.
