Machida rumored to be sick


During his pre event chat Jordan Breen passed on a rumor that challenger Lyoto Machida is sick.

Also, word round the campfire here in Toronto is that Machida is battling a cold, flu, pneumonia, or some other such thing. Pretty much been holed up in his room moreso than usual. We'll see if that ultimately amounts to anything.

Listen to entire chat...

Hah, dig the sand out of your tender little vagina and stop crying. Okay, he's not sick. Didn't think so. Just haters reaching for any excuse huh? Can't wait to see you crying hysterically when Jones gets another easy win.
