They'll do it though...
Lyoto Machida and Jacare Souza recently spoke with MMAjunkie about potential title fights and more. Check out the highlights:
Machida on a potential title fight against a Brazilian: "As Jacare mentioned, this only proves this weight class has a lot of people in it, Mousasi was a champion in Strikeforce. Jacare was a champion. Vitor Belfort has had a belt. I've had a belt. Weidman is the current champ. Anderson is a former champ. So there are many champions in this 185 weight class. I don't want to fight a Brazilian, but if that's what is done, that's what's going to happen."
Souza on the possibility: "I don't want to fight a Brazilian (next), but if the matchmakers put me in a fight against a Brazilian – Lyoto's also a big professional, and he would also accept the fight – I think it's good for all of us."
