hope this starts a trend of Machida to start talking more and not let Soares do it for him


Quinton Jackson thought Lyoto Machida won their bout at UFC 123. Machida agreed. Two of the three judges disagreed and the official win went to Rampage Jackson. UFC president Dana White was very vocal in saying that Jackson won the fight and that there would be no rematch.

Machida tweeted about Dana White (translated by

"As for my boss, I won't waste any time talking about him. As he said: he's the president, he can do whatever he wants to. Who am I to argue with someone who talks like that and thinks he's always right?"

Big words from someone one loss away from being cut.

Good point. That's two losses (arguably three) in a row. One more and boring karate guy is gone.

Nah, can't see him going after one more, it would have to be atleast 2 more losses, one against a top level opponent and a 2nd against a lesser mid-level opponent. Less than a year ago he was the Champ in the UFC's marquee division, you need to really fall off the wagon to get cut in these conditions.

He'll prob fight winner of Forrest/Rich next then if he loses that then fight someone who is just above "UFC Can" level and if he lost that too then he'd get cut

Kind of childish if you ask me. "I won't talk about Dana White" and then he throws in a few insults anyway. Machida ought to go on the attack two times per round instead of per fight. Then he would be the monster we once thought he was. This total elusiveness just isn't working anymore.
