UFC 140 videos: Lyoto Machida is going to get his belt back from Jon Jones on Dec. 10 in Toronto

Borrowing a tried and true line from Tito Ortiz, former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida vows to get his belt back from current titleholder Jon Jones, whom he'll take on this coming Dec. 10, 2011, at UFC 140 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

As "The Dragon" explains, it's all about preparation:

"I watch and study Jon Jones's fights thoroughly and really it's about preparing for everything. What spectacular thing is he going to do? Is he going to fly or is he going to be diving in? There's always going to be a surprise factor with Jon Jones. All you can really do is prepare for everything he might try to do. If I do that I will be ready to face whatever he is going to bring during the fight. I have been preparing and training 100-percent and I'm gonna be 100-percent the day of the fight. I am going to go in there and win and get the belt back. I will be the champion again."

With his elusive style and unorthodox striking, Machida just might be the one to finally figure out how to solve the "Bones" Jones puzzle. Or is he?

Any Maniacs putting money down on the Brazilian butt-kicker?
