Seems like a good move on his part, since the boys at that weight have the potential to do some serious damage. Staying in a class that he can dominate extends his career length, or at least thats what the thought process is?
I seem to recall that too. However, I think that was when Machida was champ, and he didn't want to fight his buddy for the title. Now that he's no longerthe champ, perhaps his thoughts are different in the subject.
