Questioned about the boss’s point of view, Glover Teixeira, who’s friends and training parter of Lyoto Machida, affirmed he would not like to fight him, but since he is a UFC employee, recognizes it is up to the organizers. |
“Only in the future we’ll know it. When you’re an employee of a company you can avoid certain situations, but you can’t deny a fight. We’re employees but there’s a boss. We may try to avoid this, but if it happens I hope for the best and that everything go alright. If he is the champion, and I’m hoping he is, let’s see”, said on an interview with TATAME.
Even when talking about this delicate subject, Glover was cool and reminded of a story about Lyoto’s father, master Yochizo Machida, when he said they would have to fight each other.
“Lyoto’s dad told us we had to fight. ‘You’re going to fight alright. I put Lyoto and his brother to fight each other. You have to fight’. I told him I wouldn’t, I joked about it with his wife: ‘no, Glover. You oughtta fight’. We kept playing and joking about it and I’m calling him saying: ‘Lyoto, I’m training here with Mr. Machida’ (laughs)”.
Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
