Rutten: Machida doesn't have a lot of weapons - Mixed Martial Arts News


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.'

"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."
