Chinzo Machida returns to MMA in December

Quote:


Brother of the former UFC champion Lyoto Machida, the karate fighter Chinzo Machida is set to make his return to the MMA rings at WFE Platinum, event that happens on December 15 in Salvador, Bahia. The duel will be against Leonardo Laiola, pupil of Luiz Carlos Dórea, boxing coach of names like the Nogueira brothers and Junior dos Santos. Without fighting for over four years, Chinzo has a similar style to his famous brother. Successful on Karate competitions, he has two MMA fights on his professional record, with a win (by KO) and a loss (by submission), both on Jungle Fight. Check below the complete card of WFE Platinum and watch Chinzo’s MMA debut, in 2005.

No no guys, he stated a couple of months ago that he really wants to focus on HIS MMA career from now on. And he said that he wanted to have at least one fight this year, wich is now finally happening.

He also said he would love to participate in a Brazilian TUF show. Let's hope that happens anytime soon. But even without the show, I am sure people will recorgnize him, considering he does well.

That MT guy was pathetic, but cool news about Chinzo. It'd be interesting to have the Machida brothers in the UFC.

I wouldn't be that enthusiastic Bobby!
Not that i don't believe in this, but he's kinda new to MMA, inexperienced and i think it would take some time for him to gather some experience in this sport.
Normally the UFC don't sign this kind of fighters. Maybe fighting in another organisation at first and if he proves he is for real, the UFC will definitely think this thru.

Another reason why i don't think this will happen in the near future is Rua's situation. Shogun's brother, wich has a lot of MMA experience, hasn't yet signed with the UFC and considering his brother is a Champion, you would think he would have some influence in the UFC's decision to sign Ninja.

And it took some time for Rogerio to sign with the UFC also.

It seems like having a famous brother/relative doesn't guarantee you a place in the UFC.
And it's normal imo. No favours.
Gotta prove yourself in the cage/ring.

PS: would be sweet though: The Nogueira Bros. The Rua Bros. The Miller Bros. and The Machida Bros. Maybe the Diaz Bros. And The Couture father and son team.
Am i missing a familly?!

.



BELIEVE!

I know limba, thats very true!

But the difference is limba, that Ninja Rua is a real can. He can't even beat average guys. He really doesn'T belong into the UFC.

Chinzo however we don't know yet! I am 100% sure that he is a very well rounded MMA fighter today, after all the BJJ Training he did with his brother and the Black House crew. I believe he is a brown belt today.

Back then when he lost via submission, he was a beginner. Only a standup Karate fighter without much else. But since then a lot of time has past.

I truly believe, if he can manage to get 3, 4 nice wins togehter, against decent competition, the UFC will recorgnize him late 2011. And it's not that he can not fight at least 4, 5 times next year. It's not an easy way, I agree. There is no real brother bonus in the UFC, thats right.

Let's hope he is as good as I believe he is

I believe he could already compete against UFC fighters. Put him in against guys like Tyson Griffin.. Gomi.. and so on. He would do very well!

lol, okay. I won't go into critic mode cause you're a friend.

I'm interested in Chinzo to say the least It's a trip to see him fight with the signature Machida Karate stance like Lyoto.
