Lyoto Machida On The Time He Was Dana White’s Hitman
Recently UFC President Dana White discussed the time Machida beat Tito Ortiz inside the Octagon.
It was during that discussion that White admitted to giving Lyoto a special bonus after the win due to White’s special dislike for Ortiz and his happiness at the defeat.
The move made Machida feel like a hit man, at least that’s what he told MMAFighting.com:
“He really did that (pay a bonus after the Tito Fight) I felt like a hitman getting money from the boss, but it was cool. I won’t tell you how much he paid me. but it was good money… (White) said I was dominating the fight and out of a sudden (Ortiz) got me on that triangle. He said ‘shitt, I can’t believe it.’ He went crazy, but then I got out of it. So I guess he gave me a bonus because he was scared of that triangle (laughs).”
