- Lyoto Machida recently spoke about dropping to middleweight and more. Here are the highlights…
On a Possible Fight With Anderson Silva: "We are friends, but it's too early to think about that. I'm just arriving in this class, and I have to keep my focus on this fight."
On Possibly Fighting Anderson Silva: I don't know how long he's going to fight," he said. "That's why I don't think about that."
On a Possible Title SHot: "I don't know about the future," Machida said. "That's why I say to everybody, I'm just arriving. It's hard to say about a title shot. Everybody is asking about it, but I prefer not to talk about it. I just dropped down because I was going to fight against (Jon) Jones, and that couldn't happen. The UFC gave me an opportunity to fight at 185. I want to stay active."
