"Congrats to @jonnybones -- great win. Hey @danawhite, I'd like to see if his chin is as good as he thinks & I'm ready to go."

-- In the main event of UFC 140 last night (Sat., Dec. 10, 2011), Lyoto Machida showed the world that Light heavyweight Champion Jon Jones has a chin that can, in fact, be touched. "The Dragon" was viciously choked unconscious in the second round of that fight, of course, but not before confirming that "Bones" is human and he does have his very own deficiencies. Immediately following the bout, Dan Henderson took to Twitter to campaign for a title shot, and he's using his patented "H-bomb" to make his case. His line of thinking is that if he can land one hard right to the jaw, we could very well see Jones on the floor taking a nap similar to the one he induced on Machida. The problem here is that Rashad Evans has already been promised the next shot ... if he can get past Phil Davis at UFC on Fox 2 in Chicago. Anyone think "Hendo" should leapfrog him either way? Or should the UFC wait and see on "Suga" Rashad?
