Maybe Machida's next opponent will be the Liddell/Rua winner, and maybe, just maybe, when Machida runs over either Chuck or Shogun they'll give him a shot.
Then again probably not.
You are correct, and, in my opinion, it's not recent. Lyoto has been the best light heavyweight in the world for the better part of the past year. He'll have to actually murder Dana's boy Chuck to maybe garner respect to get a title shot.
