Who is Lyoto Machida

I know there are many Lyoto Machida fans throughout the world who want to see more of this exceptional martial artist.  I have been fortunate enough to become friends with Lyoto due to the nature of the business I am in, exporting the acai berry from his hometown of Belem, Brazil. This Blog is for all the US and Worldwide fans who want to catch a glimpse into the life of Lyoto Machida.

Lyoto is a true warrior unlike most in the UFC and I hope he gets everything great that is deserved to him. Much love to the Machida family!!

The Dragon will become the greatest UFC Champion of all times. His strong family relationship and dedication to his craft make him a force that no one can master. I wait for the day that he puts on the light heavy weight belt for the first time.

You have many fans behind you....

The very first time I saw Lyoto Machida in the UFC was his UFC debut. To be honest I don't even remember his opponent, but I remember thinking "this guy is gonna win a lot of fights by simply frustrating his opponents". However, his dominating KO victory against Thiago Silva convinced me that he is worthy of a title shot at the light heavyweight level. Congratulations Lyoto.

I first remember watching Lyoto fight because he fought one of my alltime favorites, BJ Penn. Since then, I have truly appreciate his overall skill set. Lyoto is the only true "martial artist" in every sense. US fans complain because they don't understand what martial arts is, self-defense. Bruce Lee has been rebirthed in what is now Lyoto..."the art of fighting; without fighting." Lyoto is undoubtedly the best fighter in the world, regardless of weight, regardless of promotional organization! I can't see anyone ever beating him because his perfect balance of mental, physical and spiritual skills.

Lyoto is going to dominate Evans in UFC 98!! It's great that he's finally getting the shot at the title and he is getting the attention he deserves. I have been a fan of Lyoto and know he is going to continue to kick ass !!

Lyoto has a great family that works together helping him in each degree he steps. Besides he´s a great fighter using his exceptional style, the Machida Karate, he´s also a great husband, a lovely father and a very nice friend. People in Brazil are very proud of him! He´ll be the winner in UFC 98. We all pray for GOD!

lyoto has the potential to be the best fighter of all time for the UFC

Rizmann said...

hey lyoto,

I've followed the UFC since the beginning and I've never had a favorite fighter that I deeply rooted for UNTIL, I saw your UFC debut. Some people may like to see 2 people just punching each other with no technique, but not me. I appreciate the grace and beauty you display while you are fighting. And to top it all off, with knockout power. Keep your humble ways, as it is the true sign of a great martial artist. KI-HAP!

This blog is great! I am glad I found it. Please continue to post so that fans may know more about this talented fighter.

Wow...what an incredible fight. Was I watching a martial arts movie or was it for real. Machidas moves are so beautiful. Although in a different class, GSP is the only other fighter I've seen that has such grace and poise. I love the kicks...it's HOT! Jackson....no competition!

Lyoto you´re the inspiration for many practitioners.
Congratulations for the title!

I recorded the Lyoto/Rashad fight and I wore out my rewind buttom. I watched it 100 times and can't believe how fast and accurate Lyoto is. Lyoto can keep the title for a long time as long as he always remembers its a chess game, and his roots. And always thank God. Lyoto is an extraordanary man.

Your fighting is amazing, it is well balanced, with the physcial mental and spiritual,combined which is the key to a great fighter, obviously...Great fan of YOURZ, in New Zealand

HugeFan said...

The Evans knockout was just incredible, Lyoto landed something like 25 hits in 30 seconds. I have enormous respect for this guy and wish him and his familly the best. He does honor to his style, his father and himself...plus...he looks like a great guy.

When a Machida school opens in Montreal, Canada, I'll be the first one there.

From the moment you knocked out then undefeated Rich Franklin in Japan, I knew you were going to be big. You had the moves, strong mind and morals of true champion. Keep the way of the samurai alive Lyoto! Bonzai!

Its not him who won him the title, its karate because it is the ultimate form of combat, and every1 in mma is too ignorant to realise that

Thank you, thank you so much for this site. I feel Lyoto Machida is the ultimate role model and an absolutely amazing mixed martial arts practitioner, what he said after the Evans destruction gives me shivers to this day. I look forward to watching his career and ever growing legacy with great interest. Honor and respect, James Buck.

.. Lyoto.. o melhor. Continuar lutando à sua maneira, o caminho do Dragão! Não mude o seu estilo de acordo com Dana White, que poderiam tentar influenciar ou empurrá-lo para ser demasiado agressivo. Seu estilo é ótimo, você sabe disso.
