lyoto machida

By now, if you are a fan of mixed martial arts, you have heard of the name Lyoto Machida. Who is he? Machida is one of the most successful fighters in the world today. He currently holds the light heavyweight championship belt of the world, and he is also considered the most elusive fighter in mixed martial arts history.

Lyoto Machida is of Japanese and Brazilian heritage. Perhaps this is one of the secrets of his success because he has the traditional discipline of the Japanese combined with the athleticism and creativity of the Brazilians. He does not speak English well, but he is working on it. He speaks Portuguese and a little bit of Japanese. Regarding Spanish, he says that he only knows the word “gracias”.

Lyoto is so successful because he combines the best aspects of traditional Karate along with jiu-jitsu, grappling, and wrestling. Those who have fought against Lyoto such as Tito Ortiz, Rashad Evens, and Thiago Silva can testify to the immense difficulty they have had in even touching Lyoto.

Something else that you may not know is that his brother Chizo Machida is also a great fighter in his own right. He is one of the best Shotokan fighters in the world, and he has also competed in mixed martial arts competitions. He has great standup, but his ground game has much to be desired.

Recently, Lyoto has added a new strength and agility coach, and it has paid off in his knockouts of Thiago Silva and Rashad Evans.
