One of the most heavily-anticipated fights of the year, the title bout between Lyoto Machida and Maurício Shogun takes place this Saturday in Canada, at UFC 113. And one fighter in particular will be watching closely.
This fighter is Wanderlei Silva, who has a fight scheduled against Japan’s Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 116, on July 3. Shogun’s former training partner, Wand isn’t sitting on the fence on this one:
“I like Lyoto and admire him as a fighter and person, but I can’t deny that I’m rooting for Shogun. Lyoto is a hard guy to knockout and I feel the fight will go to decision again,” says Wand, who even invites fans to watch the match with him.
