Jon Jones: I don't want to fight Lyoto Machida, he was my lowest PPV draw last yearPosted on August 18, 2012, 12:46 PM by Anton Gurevich
"I don't want to fight Lyoto Machida. He was my lowest pay-per-view draw of last year. No one wants to see me fight Lyoto Machida. I don't want to fight Lyoto again. Lyoto is high risk and low reward.
He's a tough fighter, but no one wants to buy that fight.
Between (Mauricio) Shogun (Rua), (Quinton) Rampage (Jackson) and Rashad (Evans), Lyoto was my lowest draw. Why would I want to fight someone where it's a lose-lose situation? I won't make money on it, and he's a tricky fighter." - ESPN.com
UFC Light Heavyweight champion Jon "Bones" Jones once again spoke about his lack of desire to fight Lyoto Machida for the second time. According to Jones, Machida is simply not as marketable as other potential match-ups in the UFC Light Heavyweight division. Bones will face Dan Henderson on September 1st, in what would be his fourth 205 title defense. Jones is getting close to cleaning up the division, with Alexander Gustafsson currently being the only fresh product on the market. Jon Jones is 16-1 as a fighter.
