Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold set to lock horns

The Dragon as he is known as Lyoto Machida is a renowned name in the UFC Championship but he does not continue to remain the same mysterious invidual as he was a few years ago when he won the lightweight championship for the first time. The experts had identified as the next big thing but he failed to come up to expectations in the past few months. The stiff challenge that is coming up for him in the near future is the match up against Luke Rockhold. Luke Rockhold has been having a stiff competition going on between him and Michael Bisping but it has been kept on bay by the UFC President Dana White. Going by the current standings of the player the fight between Lyoto Machida and Luke Rokchold seems to be apt. Both of these players will be raring to go against each other and the fans can be ensured of a great match up.

The different style of the fighters will also be something to watch out for. Both of them are poles apart in this regard. While Lyoto Machida prefers staying back and waits for his opponents to make mistakes, his counterpart is an aggressive persona on and off the field. The fans are looking forward to catch this match and each of them is looking forward to this opportunity to prove their worth in front of the crowd. The most intriguing part of the duel is going to be the strategy that each of them is going to follow. Machida had never been a fan favorite but his last match up where he put up a stiff challenge to his opponent despite trailing by three games to none proved to be a major positive point for the fighter. The crowd shouted for his success anticipating one of the best comebacks of UFC.

Anderson Silva Declares That He Will Now Fight Jacare Souza And Lyoto Machinda

There was a time when ace martial arts champion Anderson Silva declared that he would never combat with Ronaldo Souza, Lyoto Machida or anyone else who’s a friend or a teammate from UFC. But somehow, that now is a thing of the past.

An ex middleweight champion from UFC, Anderson Silva and Jacare used to train together in Rio de Janeiro at the X Gym while the former used to train with Machida in Los Angeles at Black House. He added that regardless of the kind of relation he shares with these two he will never force them to receive the code of honor offered by Team Nogueira.

Silva commented to a popular TV channel that he will never fight his teammates; however it is not a mutual thing. While they are at Nogueira, things are taken very seriously about these issues, however, neither Jacare nor Lyoto are from the Team, hence that hold no value at all. They have reported it multiple times in different interviews that they will definitely fight Anderson, hence there should be no exception in his case.

While interviewed recently, Silva commented that he doesn’t see himself fighting and winning once more in 2014 and might not compete for the title at all. However, he seems to have changed his mind with a couple of days, when he declared that he will be competing for the title.

Anderson added that until he will be ready again to combat for the title, many things might crop up. He proudly stated that this is one title that nobody could maintain for such a long time besides him and seems confident that he will be able to do so once more.

Silva said that he feels bad that Victor Belfort, being such an amazing fighter won’t be fighting this year.
