Thread: Lyoto Machida brings in Melvin Manhoef to help train for Dan Henderson bout

  1. Default Lyoto Machida brings in Melvin Manhoef to help train for Dan Henderson bout

    Photo of the Day: Lyoto Machida Brings In New Training Partner, Hendo’s Knee Already Suffering the Consequences | | Cagepotato



    Well, we can pretty much put any doubt to rest in regards to Lyoto Machida’s strategy for his upcoming UFC 157 fight with Dan Henderson. The former champion recently Tweeted the above photo of himself training alongside Melvin Manhoef, the world renowned Muay Thai kickboxer who possesses legs so destructive that they are capable of implosion, so expect a Machida gameplan of “Leg kick, evade, repeat” heading into this one. This is not good news for Hendo, who will be stepping back into the ring for the first time since blowing out his knee and setting into motion a series of events that would culminate in the cancellation of UFC 151 and an absolutely brutal public backlash aimed at champion Jon Jones. So yeah, it wasn’t all bad.

    Since going winless during his Strikeforce and DREAM runs in 2010-2011, Manhoef has put together three wins and a no-contest in MMA competition, including a first round destruction of Denis Kang on New Year’s Eve at DREAM 18. Machida, on the other hand, recently rebounded from a failed title bid against Jones at UFC 140 with a second round KO of Ryan Bader at UFC on Fox 4 last August.

    He hasn't really fared to well against in the upper levels of competition of late don't think he'd stick around for long if they brought him.

    He doesn't have to be upper level fighter, just leg kicks and head kicks to the middle of the pack

    it'd help if he hadn't gone winless in dream and SF over the past few years. all his wins are over no-names and denis kang.

    I don't think he gets to the middle of the pack in the current UFC.
