Rutten: Machida doesn’t have a lot of weapons

Thursday, February 14, 2013 recently interviewed Bas Ruttnen, who offered controversial remarks on Lyoto Machida, who fights Dan Henerson at UFC 157 on Feb. 23.


“Dan is the man’s man. Like any guy on the planet, they love Dan because he’s got a lot of heart and he always comes to fight. I always get emotional because he’s really that guy. That’s why I want to see him win and I think he has that chance because he knows when he lands that ‘H-bomb,’ it’s goodnight.

I’m gonna get a lot of heat now. Machida doesn’t have a lot of weapons. Whatever he does, he does really well. He’s got great distance, great accuracy, but his attack is always the same. It’s a cross, or a kick and a cross. When you push him, he always moves to the same side. So, if Dan would look at that and just bullrush him, he could throw a big hand there and that could stop him.”

Lyoto Machida (18-3) holds wins over Rashad Evans, Randy Couture and Rich Franklin. Not bad for a guy who ‘doesn’t have a lot of weapons.’
