Thread: Lyoto Machida No Longer Angry About Chael Sonnenís Title-Shot

  1. Default Lyoto Machida No Longer Angry About Chael Sonnenís Title-Shot

    Lyoto Machida No Longer Angry About Chael Sonnen

    The UFCís decision to award Chael Sonnen a crack at light heavyweight champion Jon Jonesí belt didnít sit well with many people including a number of the talented 205ers in line with superior claims to contendership. A handful of fighters even went so far as to express their anger publicly including former title-holder Lyoto Machida.

    ďThe DragonĒ, who lost his shot at Jonesí belt by requiring more than a few weeks to train for the tilt, has since gotten over his issue with Sonnen and moved on with his life as he made clear in a recent interview.

    ďAt the moment I was a little upset. But itís all good, itís passed. Thereís always two sides to everything. Looking at it from an athleteís perspective, Chael Sonnen might have cut across a lot of people and maybe cut the line to get a shot at the belt. But for the UFC, it might be a good thing for this fight to happen at this time. Thereís always two sides.Ē

    ďIím very happy to be fighting Dan HendersonÖItís a good fight and its another challenge for me. If I want to fight for the belt again, I need to get through this fight first.Ē

    He is right, there are 2 sides for everything.

    On one side there is the fact that Chael Sonnen received the most undeserved title shot ever. On the bright side, he will get the ass whooping he deserves.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Should have taken the fight.

    There's a person handing out a free car to those who wait in line.

    They go to the first person in line - "I don't want the car."
    They go to the second person in line - "I don't want the car either."
    They go to the third person in line - "I don't want the car."

    They finally find someone to take the stupid free car that everyone was standing in line for to begin with.

    first person - "Why did he get the car?"
    second person - "Hey why did that guy get the car?"

    etc.etc.etc.

    If Machida took the fight on short notice and lost, do you think he would ever get to fight Jones for the title again? I think he made a smart and ballsy decision.

    What if the 1st guy in line wants the car but needed preparation time to get a license and insurance? Lets say they didn't have the funds to afford either?

    I'm just rollin with ya baby

    Still should have been in shape to take the fight. Looks like he doesn't take it seriously enough to be champ again. Oh well.

    I hate this fight for Dan... Lyoto is going to tear him apart.

    I will be rooting for Dan though as I want to see him get one more shot at UFC gold..Lyoto still has a couple few more coming im sure.
    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
