Lyoto Machida (17w, 2l) has a thorny task ahead of him on December 10 in Toronto, where he’ll challenge Jon Jones (14w, 1l) for the lightweight title in the UFC 140 main event.
The unpredictable son of Master Machida with his opponent-baffling game has been training hard in Belém, Brazil, to reconquer the belt that was once his.
“I haven’t had training like this anywhere else in the world. I’ve trained in Japan, in the United States, but never with the setup I have here. That gives me confidence,” said Lyoto. While Jon Jones is widely regarded as one of the most well-rounded fighters in the sport, there are those who feel Lyoto is just the guy to throw a wrench in his game.
