Last night UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones made history in defeating Lyoto Machida, joining the ranks of Rampage Jackson and Shogun Rua as one of the few Dragon Slayers.
With the way "The Dragon" controlled the fight in the first round, Machida showed that he does have what it takes to dethrone the champ. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to keep it up and, for the first time in his career, lost via submission.
At 33 years old, Machida's career is far from over as he still has enough time and steam to make another run at the title. The road back to redemption will be long and difficult, but everyone loves a comeback.
So, here are the top five fights Machida can take, and if he wins enough of them to earn another title shot we may stop calling him "The Karate Kid" and instead refer to him as "The Comeback Kid".
