Lyoto Machida was expected to be Jon Jones’ next challenger for the UFC light heavyweight title, but a toe injury suffered at UFC 159 will keep Jones on the shelf for some time. Machida is currently on a two-fight win streak, including a stunning knockout victory over Ryan Bader and most recently eking out a split decision over Dan Henderson at UFC 157.

Phil Davis showed off his improving stand-up game at UFC 159, dismantling Vinny Magalhaes for three rounds, earning an easy unanimous decision. The win was his second consecutive victory since dropping a decision to Rashad Evans, also submitting Wagner Prado in the second round at UFC 153.
