Top 5 Wins of Lyoto Machida’s Career

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Lyoto Machida will start a new phase of his career this coming weekend when he dips down to middleweight with hopes of following in the footsteps of friend Anderson Silva by eventually winning divisional gold. While Machida’s main event match-up with Mark Munoz at UFC Fight Night 30 is certainly an important moment in the 35-year old’s run, it’s definitely not the first time he’s been put in a bout with high stakes against an apt adversary. And, as history has shown, chances are good he’ll come out on top when things are said and done. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    Off Topic: What do you guys think about Chael/Wanderlei coaching TUF Brazil 3?

    On Topic: Why wouldnt him beating Shogun in their first fight get a mention? He was the first LHW to defend a title since Rampage held the belt.

    its been building up to something hasnt it, the Wand/Chael pseudo beef. coaching TUF sounds like fun, shame its not a Brazil vs US though, or just TUF. kinda don’t see Brazillian fighters taking too well to being coached by Chael. plus if the first two seasons were anything to go by, not many US folk will bother watching it, what with having to read words on the screen and shit

    Ya I didn’t think about how Brazillians wouldn’t enjoy being coached by Chael. Does the UFC even air TUF Brazil anywhere? I never see previews for it

    I left the Rua win off because of how controversial the judges’ decision was.

    It still doesn’t change the fact that at the end of the day he won, and thus is only one of two LHW’s to successfully defend their belts since Rampage lost it.
