I don't blame him for wanting to recover before a title shot. They don't come along every day. If he accepted and lost because of his injuries, it's not likely he'd get another one anytime soon.
I don't blame him either. IT will also give Machida a chance to post his fan base by whoopin' Rashad's arse. The fight between Lyoto and Page will be huge!
