Earlier this week it was announced that Lyoto Machida would be making the drop to middleweight and would fight Tim Kennedy at the upcoming Fight for the Troops. However, Kennedy was actually not Machida's first choice for his debut in the middleweight division:

"It’s a big opportunity, something I have in mind, for sure," he said. "Let’s see who I will fight at middleweight first and then take one step at a time. It’s my debut, I don’t know how I will feel there yet."

First things first. Machida anticipates a tough match-up, but Kennedy wasn’t the opponent he had in mind.

"Tim Kennedy is a tough guy, but I wanted to fight (Vitor) Belfort or Chael Sonnen next," he said. "But sometimes you can’t choose. The UFC asked me to take this fight, and I’m in."

booooooooooo!

machida vs chael or vitor or sasi or rockhold or jacare, even though i know they wont fight.

don't care for a vitor hendo rematch either at the moment or wand chael fight.

id rather chael face vitor,sasi,jacare,machida,rockhld or hendo even though they would prob never fight.

I thought that Vitor and Machida were friends?


or that doesn't matter to brazilians, it's only Americans & Canadians that won't fight friends?

Maybe 6 years ago when Blackhouse was helping Vitor get his career back on track. Soon as he was back he leaves them and wants to fight Anderson...

Machida doesn't like him, especially after Vitor sort of mocked him for turning down Jones on short notice last year. Now who's running from fights? Vitor Belfort. Phone Post
