Chinzo Machida Hopes To Get Into The UFC
Posted by Joseph Lee on 06.05.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, Chinzo Machida (2-2) said that his goal is to make it into the UFC to join his brother Lyoto. He will fight Dmitry Gerasimov (3-1) in a featherweight bout at RFA 15 on Friday. It happens at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Culver City, California and airs on AXS TV.

On his MMA goals: "I'd like to get into the UFC. I'd also like to fight into my 40s."

On why he's had few fights in over seven years: "I was busy helping with Lyoto's MMA career, but what kept me busiest was my own karate career. I had placed second place in the world and I was trying to become champion. But I'm done with that pursuit and I'm more focused on MMA now."

On his credentials: "I'm a jiu-jitsu brown belt. I study wrestling under Kenny Johnson. Unlike Lyoto, I didn't practice much sumo. Lastly, I train with Rener Gracie in Torrance (Calif.) at the Gracie academy. I'm highly confident in my work. I think Lyoto will be in my corner and his MMA experience will help me a lot. I can't predict what my opponent will do. I'll just have to feel my way once the fight starts. I don't want to worry to much, because he could always surprise me. So I'm going with a clear mind. I'm ready for everything."
