Lyoto Machida stands by Anderson Silva

March 17th, 2015

When Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC legend Anderson Silva was hauled off for the use of performance enhancing drugs following his recent return to the promotion, it sent shockwaves down the Mixed Martial Arts world. And one man who was as surprised by the controversy as any was Lyoto Machida, Anderson’s long time friend and sparring partner.

Fans, friends and family have all rallied around the legendary Brazilian as they watched one of the most legendary careers in Mixed Martial Arts history implode and go up in flames. Anderson’s proclamations of innocence have all fallen on deaf ears with many questions remaining unanswered.

Lyoto Machida does not have the answers himself but he has stood beside his compatriot and friend and tried to help him get over the situation.

He said that he is very surprised and added that he believes that Anderson is the victim here; he is the story that will sell. He said that he prefers not to talk about this because it is a very difficult situation for Anderson Silva. He mentioned that he has a lot of confidence in his friend and he hopes he pulls through.

The Wait To See Who Lyoto Machida Is Pitted Against

January 20th, 2015

It was Lyoto Machida who destroyed C.B. Dollaway last month at the UFC Fight Night 58 with a body kick before ending which was devastating enough. All this happened in the first round only. Even though the win doesn’t give him the immediate chance at the title, it will surely start his journey back up the line after he dropped a decision to Chris Weidman the 185-pound champion last summer.

The question that lies now are about who is the next person on the line? As the middleweight division is more like a rifle with talent, the obvious target is Luke Rockhold. Rockhold tweeted after the victory of Machida that he looked great and after Rockhold achieved the guillotine victory at the UFC Fight Night over the match against Michael Bisping last month, he tweeted to Dana White that he is ready whenever he is.

Lyoto Machida wants to fight his way to contention

December 11th, 2014

Jose Aldo is a spectacular fighter and he will be too dominant for anyone to beat at the time, given the kind of form he is in, and will prove too much of a handful for Conor McGregor, according to former Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida.

McGregor was at ring side last month as the UFC Featherweight champion Aldo put in another fighting master class to completely decimate Chad Mendes and according to the Brazilian, the Irishman doesn’t have what it takes to dethrone his compatriot.

Machida said that if anyone compares his fellow Brazilian with the Irishman, Aldo is technically a lot more sound, adding that although McGregor is a very tough fighter  and comes strongly at his opponents, no one can say that he can beat Aldo inside the cage.

The two are completely different and the Brazilian doesn’t feel any regression in the way the Irishman promotes himself, stating that he can promote himself in the way he chooses to and one has to respect that.

Lyoto Machida is coming off a unanimous decision loss at the hands of UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman and he will try and climb his way back into the running for another shot at the title, but the Brazilian doesn’t think he will be taking a page out of McGregor’s book to get there faster.

The Brazilian stated that it is not in his style to run his mouth and talk trash against his opponents, and that is not how he wants to get a crack at the title once again. Lyoto Machida mentioned that he is ready to work hard and fight his way back into contention for a shot at the title rather than handed one for running his mouth like Chael Sonnen did.

Miguel Cotto continues to dominate welterweight category

September 29th, 2014

Miguel Cotto is one of the most respected fighters in boxing. He is the first person of Puerto Rican descent to have won major titles in boxing. At 33 years of age he is already a national hero and the people of his country have voiced their support for him throughout his career. He was crowned as the champion in the 160 pound category recently and is tipped to fight again in 2015. But the athlete is raring to go and wishes to face some strong opponents even before that. This speaks a lot about his confidence in himself. A number of fighters have been short listed to fight against him for the title. The primary opponent for Cotto is Timothy Bradley. However the trainer of Miguel Cotto is optimistic about his success. He has lately demanded a match against Saul Canelo Alvarez. According to the trainer Cotto has not gone up against any of the top competitors since the last few months although he has been widely successful.

The World Boxing Council is considering the demand of the athlete and his trainer trying to include some match that would prove a challenge for Cotto. The last match against Kelson Pinto was a one sided affair in favor of Cotto. He was able to knockdown the opponent in very less time and completely dominated in his opponent. He took advantage of his strong built and skills disallowing any kind of upper hand to the longer opponent. Miguel Cotto has achieved success in the welterweight category as well as the middleweight category. His greatest successes include Transnational Boxing ranking board, WBC and The Ringworld Middleweight championship titles. The fans are looking forward for this fighter to achieve greater success in near future and he is keen to meet expectations.
