If they're going to have a #1 contender fight between Gus & Machida, they need to do it soon so Jones isn't sitting for too long.
Even before the injury I believe Jones stated he wanted to fight again sometime in November so if they did the fight in August(Fox Sports card?) that should give them enough turn around for a title fight in November.
First of all, the LHW division has much more challengers than MW @ LHW, excluding Anderson. Second, the guy takes a ton of 'crap' for being bigger than everyone else, yet they keep feeding him undersized and unqualified opponents.
