Lyoto Machida is on par to be the best in UFC histroy. And He will most likely keep that title for awhile.
He is the LEAST HIT fighter in the history of UFc (Average hits is 1 every two 1/2 rounds.)
He has NEVER lost a around in points.
He has gone up against fighters who were said to “be the best” and made them look like some one fresh into the game.
He has the HIGHEST % of hits landed being 65% and the average for all other fighters is around 30%. And is second to only anderson silva.
He combines the elgence of Karata with the brutalness of MMA.
And he does it all and doesn’t even act like a bad-ass.
He is not cocky.
He will win because he will have a clearer head and a better strategy.
Lyoto, not only are you a great Champion, but many look up to you as a role model because you have proven to be a good sportsman. Keep up the good work and focus. I believe there is no luck with you…only Machida Karate!!!
voce sabe que nao ganhou a luta nao eh verdade? 100% do povo viu a luta diferente que os juizes viram…faz um favor? entrega o cinturao p/ o verdadeiro campeao dessa noite..que foi o SHOGUN amigo…obrigado e o povo agradece
Joe- I couldn’t even watch Lyoto and Anderson fight, ever. I would have to sit in another room then hear about it. Those two guys are like artists, not just fighters…I don’t want them to fight each other, ever.
Reunimos os amigos da academia para assistir a sua, a nossa luta, numa rodada de pizza. Ficamos triste com o resultado é claro. Mais muito preocupados com os ferimentos. Estamos torcendo e rezando pela sua boa recuperação. Você representa não só nação karate do Brasil, mas também a juventude brasileira, o bom moço, boa gente. O exemplo de atleta.
Um forte abraço e que Deus te proteja
