A few months back former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida came under heavy criticism for saying he wanted 'Anderson Silva money' to take a fight on short notice against Rashad Evans.

There was a lot more to the situation that simply wanting money, but Machida made his choice and now gets an even bigger opportunity in December.

On Thursday, the UFC announced that Machida would face 205lb champion Jon Jones in the main event of UFC 140 in Toronto.

With the news still fresh, Machida's manager Ed Soares spoke to MMAWeekly.com about the match-up and how he believes 'everything happens for a reason'.

Soares also compliments Jones on his ability and skill in the cage, but that he's never faced anyone like Lyoto Machida and it's going to show on Dec 10.
