      I saw him fight live twice. He was one of 5 of my favourite figters. At the time he was my favourite. How fickle this reads. He is a legend. Thank you for the fights. Thank you producing this video. Goosebumps

    What I find most interesting about Machida is the culture combo he represents - a humble Japanese discipline mixed with a brazen Brazilian fire. Truly a master in every aspect. God bless you Lyoto Machida.

      @DigiMeth just a little fact for you, the highest population of Japanese people outside of Japan is actually in Brazil so having a half Brazilian and half Japanese person is actually a lot more common than you may think.

      @Theo Dutra what didn’t you understand?
      I'll make it clear
      If you have to post about it on CHclip, you know, tell everybody that has NO WAY of confirming it it's probably a story.
      People in prison love to tell stories. One of the best, most prolific stories is how they are MMA fighters on the outside.
      In reality they are strung out tweakers who have burned their families.
      In a context like this, I'm skeptical.

    I don't watch stuff like this often but I can tell he's something different from most. Very quick on switching up his style and very quick on using any opportunity to dive in going straight for the head. A lot of others seem to hit once and see how effective it was and land a lot of hits on the back of the head. He lands a hit and if he thinks it was a good one without observing first just dives in with a flurry of blows with great precision to the the front of the head.

    If you've never had a friend that had this kind of fighting talent allow you to join him in a friendly sparing match where they hold back any knockout blows, you'll soon realize why these guys are BAD ASS!! I had that opportunity when I was young (24) and in awesome shape. My buddy who had some serious fighting training/skills but was much smaller than I offered to show me his skills after I gave him a bit of friendly shit. I soon realized that could have knocked me out in the first few seconds. Instead, he showed just how fast he was by tapping me around the jaw and midsection and I couldn't block more than one punch (at best) he was so fast, and I couldn't touch him!! I finally had to laugh I felt so out of my league, and he smiled back with a told you so smile. LOL.

    Lyoto Machida is an excellent fighter, disciplined, focused, makes perfect adjustments and is well prepared to fight anyone. He's had a great example and teacher, his father to guide him along the way. He made a solid decision that paid off and proved that traditional martial arts can still be very effective when applied properly even when he had to go against his sensei and father's advice. But what I like the most about this fighter, this man, is his humbleness and overall respect for others. I could honestly say that Lyoto Machida is my all time favorite fighter. Continued success and blessings to you Brazilian Dragon!

    Karate works when properly applied to full contact combat. This is true for everything. What is needed is for traditional martial arts to come completely into the full contact sparring and competition areas then we will see a lot more diversity. Point based and low contact competition is the issue.

    True story. My older brother met a Shotokan Sensei my senior year and we both started Karate lessons in N. Indiana (circa 1976 when I graduated). They had testing about 6 weeks after starting and I thought "no way" I'm ready that fast to go for my yellow belt. I worked hard and by the next time testing came around some months later, I had learned a lot, even moving on to more advanced techniques that I was trying to learn along with some Katas, since I liked Kata more than Kumite. I would practice at home a lot and when a friend jokingly challenged me that "that **** isn't any good for a real fight", we faced off only semi-seriously, and when I followed a round kick with a side kick all in one motion that stopped an inch from his nose, he said, "ok, maybe...".
    Anyway, we drive two towns away months later to the next testing, and after I change in the bathroom, an old Japanese man asks me if the bathroom is open, I reply, "yes" and he goes in and changes. We all line up, and the local school sensei introduces the Japanese man as a Shotokan master from Japan, touring the U.S. dojos, with my sensei, and two others from other schools sitting on either side of him.
    Finally my group of 4 white belts come up to test, we do all our basic forward kicks, front punches, downward blocks, etc. across the dojo floor and I thought it went fine as we finished, when about to walk away, the Japanese master looks at me and says, "YOU - you know round kick?" in his thick Japanese accent. I said, "a little" all while my heartbeat jumps up as I'm wondering 'what the heck, did I screw up???'... He says, "you DO!" So I do round kicks down the floor and he says, you know side kick?", and similarly I go "a little" and do side kicks down the floor. Keep in mind, this is one scared 17 something at his first Karate testing in a room with 50 students from white to black belts in rural Indiana. After a few more "you know...?" and me with my "a little" responses, he thanks me and dismisses me.
    Man, everyone's looking at me and there's a lot of mumbling going on, and those from my school are asking me what the heck I thought just happened as we circle up afterward. No one had any idea, had never seen anything like that at all.
    I learn that common practice was for our sensei to stay after and once they new all the results for our school, would call us each and tell us. So I'm walking on pins and needles at home, when he finally calls me about 9pm. He tells me that he had never seen anything like that either. But the Japanese master was impressed with how well I did the basic techniques to pass for yellow belt, that he wanted to ask about those other techniques to see how much more I knew than those.
    The result was he was suggesting that I be made green belt after what he saw, and the net result was they made me a blue belt, since a couple others suggested it might go to my head if I skipped TWO belts, instead of just one. And that's how I became a blue belt in Shotokan and never was a yellow belt.
    I later tested and passed my green belt test and then started college so had to put Karate aside, but I never forget that day in the dojo testing, nor my sensei who basically had only one good arm, as the other was partially paralyzed, but was a great inspiration and teacher.

    The thing that really stands out to me is that Machita always starts by stepping backwards as if he's intimated by his opponent. Once the opponent gets confident enough to attack, Machita counters with a very strong and confident dash forward which catches opponents off guard every time at the start of the match. It seems to intimidate opponents afterwards into thinking they are fighting a genius.

      It seems like stepping back and taking the time to draw him helps the fighter begin to learn his opponent's form of attack.

      100% he almost looks like he's feigning tiredness, being off balance. It's very subtle body language and then he just bursts to life and the opponent takes a flurry to the face. By the time they have a chance to recover they're on the other side of the ring on the floor.

      Also typical shotokan, stances are to draw opponents towards you by tilting back or taking the stances deep, increasing the distance while being just in striking range.

    Ahh but does he ever do the "Crane Kick" - we need to know!
    Seriously though, the way the backs of these guys heads crack down when knocked cold should be a warning to anyone who thinks it's a good/fun idea to knock someone out in the street without a very good reason. Imagine that on something hard - and the prison sentence.

    Don't know anything about him as a man but as a fighter I always found him to be one of the absolute most respectable in the ring. A true role model to be used to show the youth about honorable fighting.

    It does not surprise me - Brazilians seem to have great ability in this area. Not only the Riordan jiu jitsu clan who nearly took the world Judo championship years ago but also in Seido Karate's 300 man kumite challenge. When most other humans are totalled by it, Brazilian practitioners look barely fatigued. Fortunately in my 20 or so years of martial arts training I never had to fight a Brazilian in kumite. For which I am truly thankful.
