Lyota Machida

Does anyone have any thoughts on Machida locking down the 205 weight class?  I think he will hammer Rashad Evans and be a legit champion in the coming years. 155 is owned by BJ Penn, 170 is locked down by St.Pierre and Anderson Silva (well what can you say) has 185 salted away for life. Even though the UFC has been trying to beef up the heavyweight division (they recently auditioned some NFL players), it looks like Lesnar will own that soon enough. So, the only weight class that we can speculate on is light heavyweight. And, if anderson silva runs over this weight class the way he did 185, the UFC may hit a stale period of having champions that are too dominant. I think Florian and Tiago Silva are going to give Penn and St. Pierre a handful. However, I don’t think they are ready to be champs (yet). What do you think?
