With a fight scheduled against Mauricio Shogun, a rematch to define the holder of the light heavyweight throne, on May 8, Lyoto Machida doesn’t miss out on what else is going on in the UFC scene. Via Twitter, the karateka voiced his feelings about UFC 110, which took place last Saturday in Australia.
“I liked Wand’s fight, true to his style, aggressive and attacking. He deserved the win!” he tweeted.
It wasn’t all good times, though, as the fighter’s teammate Rodrigo Minotauro was knocked out by Cain Velasquez.
“Unfortunately, it wasn’t his day. Cain is in great form and landed it right on the button. I was saddened by Minotauro’s result, because I know how much he dedicated himself to this fight. That’s the way MMA is. You can win or lose in a fraction of a second,” he said, before stamping his approval on the organization’s maiden incursion into the Land Down Under.
“The event was good. There were a lot of good fights to watch and lots of technique and determination from the fighters,” he said in finishing.
