We're a week into the Lyoto Machida era in the UFC, and I think the funniest response to Machida winning the light heavyweight championship from Rashad Evans came from UFC lightweight champion BJ Penn, who yells in the above video, just moments after Machida beat Evans, "He couldn't do that s**t to me."

Yes, Penn did, indeed, go the distance with Machida in a fight in Japan on March 26, 2005. Despite the ridiculous size difference between them, Penn held his own, as you can see below.

That's because a guy like B.J. has a nightmare of a style for Lyoto.

He's agressive yet patient. Deadly standup and accuracy, Heavy hands, sick ground game, excellent TDD and subs and a granite chin...

If he fought naturally at 205 I have no doubt that he'd hold that title.

machida was hardly known for finishing ppl until recently. there are far inferior fighters to BJ Penn that could say the same statement.
