Lyoto Machida may have been very apologetic to his friend and training partner Mark Munoz, following his impressive knockout kick at UFC Fight Night, but it doesn’t mean he isn’t willing to to knockout another friend. We’ve heard time and time again that Lyoto would never fight his Brazilian brother Anderson Silva, but it seems his tune has changed.
With “The Dragon” now on a 185 pound title hunt, there isn’t a man in the organization that he isn’t willing to fight at 185 or 205, in order to once again be the champion.
Yes, for sure if it was for the title. I said I want that belt, and I want the belt then I have to chase the belt. But I don’t know who I want to fight next. It’s very hard to say but I want to be the champion for sure. I want the belt. I just put everything in Dana White’s hands. Even if he asks me to fight at 205 again I can do that.
When asked if he would be willing to face the fan favorite in the U.K. Michael Bisping, Machida was more than willing.
“Yes, that is a great matchup,” Machida answered when asked about fighting Bisping. “That is a great fight for me. If Bisping accepts that fight it would be great…especially in Manchester.”
