I don't think Godzilla destroyed it, more like they just abandoned Mechagodzilla because something about it's AI not being ready to be brought online. Also one of the aliens says "Who will Mechagodzilla sink it's fangs into after Godzilla?", implying that the AI could go rogue and attack humanity. Kind of a neat reference to GxMG if that was the intent.
I think the debate of "Who will Mechagodzilla sink it's fangs into after Godzilla?" is actually a lot more sinister.
It blatantly clear that both the Exif and Bilusaludo were going to try and colonise earth for themselves before they realised Godzilla was to powerful. Much like their old counter parts, the Exif were going to do so under the pretence of friendship and religious brainwashing while the Bilusaludo were going to with technology and military might. They promise that if we give them the resources, they will build a weapon to beat our greatest foe.....only to then turn it on us and the Exif once the job was completed. But Mecha G would not activate in time.
So both alien races came looking to f##k us over in our hour of need only to get just as badly curbstomped by Godzilla, putting them in the same lifeboat as us. And yet they still want to take over....well the Exif seem to want to anyway. They seem to have been pulling the strings all the way back to earth.

Ok I'm going to admit my bias on this because this film series is shaping up to be my Godzilla Dream come true, but while I liked it from the first few images we saw after seeing more of its profile I really like Mecha G IV (what I'm calling it until we get a proper name). How its going to play into the next movie I don't know, if it was built to G Earths height 20'000 years ago ...... well its screwed without a battle city to back it up or another Filius to go up against.
