February 20, 2013 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

MMAjunkie spoke with Lyoto Machida this week who stated he’d still be interested in an eventual move down to middleweight.

Machida on how he could easily make the cut to middleweight: “Maybe I can fight in both classes. Everybody saw that I drink water before I get on the scale.”

Machida’s thoughts on a potential rematch with Jones and how they match-up: “He’s a little heavy for me. But I can block that with technique.”

Reiterating he can make the move down to 185: “If I have a chance, I would like to fight at 185 pounds.”
