Ryoto "Lyoto" Machida


Is there anyone else in MMA that can claim Wins over BJ Penn AND Rich Franklin?

I'm looking forward to seeing this guy fight at UFC67!

It's not htat impressive, I'm sure Wanderlei Silva, Ricardo Arona, Rogerio Nogeuira, Chuck Liddel, Randy Couture, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, Matt Lindland, Paul Filho, Anderson Silva, Dan Henderson, Maricio Shogun Rua, Renato Babalu Sobral, Kazuhiro Nakamura, and Kazuo Misaki all could have accomplished the same thing.

And yes...Lyoto does fight @ 205. So don't try to discredit anyone I've mentioned except MAYBE henderson, though I think he would probably beat both Franklin and BJ Penn witha 205lb weight limit.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

I love me some Lyoto, but the "He beat Rich Franklin & BJ Penn" comments seem to create high expectations. Don't get me wrong, Lyoto is a really good fighter, but he's not always balls out exciting. I think some people are expecting this monster to come in, kick Hoger's head off, lick the blood, and walk off. That, more than likely won't happen. Still, Lyoto's pretty damn good, and will help the LHW division.
