Lyoto Machida has only just made his Middleweight debut within the UFC and already there is very serious talk about him getting a title shot. It’s because he is just that good, honestly, as well as a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. We all know that Lyoto Machida is capable of doing some rather amazing things within the cage, so why not just let him have a title shot and we go from there?
Lyoto Machida, though, is a bit more patient than most of us and understands the value of waiting a while for his shot at the gold. [link]
“I’m ready (to fight for the title) already, but I have to follow the rankings,” he said. “I don’t like to rush things. The right moment will come. I want to keep fighting because it’s important for me to keep this rhythm. I want to feel well in this division, this is my place.”
He’s a lot more patient than most of us, that is for sure.
