What can you tell me about Lyoto Machida??

Just wondering what you guys know about Lyoto Machida, the guy who beat B.J. Penn and Rich Franklin? Since there is the prospect of more and more fighters coming from Pride (given Anderson Silva's arrival with a bang and the fact that Pride has now invaded the U.S.). Would he be a viable opponent for someone like Sylva or Liddell or even Tim Sylvia? This guy sounds like he has potential but I never really hear much about him .. not like I hear about Fedor or Mirko or Wanderlei!

I wasnt impressed with Machida's decision win against Vernon White at WFAs last event, he would get tooled by Sylva, even worse against Chuck, and why would he fight Sylvia? lol

Lyoto vs Chuck would be a pretty fun fight. Lyoto vs Sylvia is mismatch city.

Lyoto is a Shotokan Karate fighter who is pretty decent on the ground. Really fast hands, and he keeps angles(Which makes it very difficult to hit him).

He's not really known because he has never fought in Pride(Or the UFC). Hopefully, they'll recognize that he is someone who can bring the goods. Him turning Bonnar's face into cherry pie was fun.
