Thread: Lyoto Machida delivers on promise of dinner after UFC Fight Night 30 headliner

  1. Default Lyoto Machida delivers on promise of dinner after UFC Fight Night 30 headliner

    http://www.mmajunkie.com/news/2013/1...t-30-headliner



    After serving as a replacement and agreeing to fight friend and training partner Mark Munoz in Saturday's UFC Fight Night 30 headliner, Lyoto Machida said the two fighters agreed on one important thing: that the winner buys dinner.

    Following a first-round destruction of his buddy, the Brazilian delivered on his promise.

    With the Portuguese version of "thank you very much," Munoz tweeted the following message with the above photo: "Muito obrigado @LyotoMachidaFW for dinner! #classact @mughli See u next week! @ Mughli."
    In Saturday's FOX Sports 2-televised headliner at Phones4u Arena in Manchester, England, Machida (20-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) made his middleweight debut in destructive fashion. After blasting Munoz (13-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) with a highlight-reel head kick early in the fight (watch the Machida vs. Munoz video highlights), Machida went in for the kill. However, with Munoz clearly out of it, Machida pulled his punch, backed up, gave a bow as a sign of respect, and them immediately checked to assure his friend was OK.

    It was as classy a sequence as you'll find in the sport of professional fist-fighting.

    With the fight out of the way, the two middleweight contenders said they plan to be in the gym and training together again next week.
    There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.

    Well I have never been a big fan a Machida, but i think i need to start being one. I realize they have a very long history as friends and training partners. I just wish more fighters would show even half that respect towards another fighter in and out of the octagon.
    Fav Fighters: Penn, Wand, Fedor, Genki, Shields, Rashad, Pulver, Diaz bros, Melendez.

    But that's where Machida keeps the tooth he kicked out of Couture's mouth.
