“Lyoto has a good team. I believe a lot in Lyoto. We are close friends. This belt needs to be in Brazil. Weidman is a great athlete but there isn’t too much secret about fighting him. Lyoto has great chances of winning because Weidman is a normal guy, he has no weapons to threaten Lyoto. Weidman is good in the game that he trains, very good. But Lyoto has a game that’s hard to deal with, he moves very well.”

In a recent interview with, former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, talked about the upcoming title tilt between Lyoto Machida and Chris Weidman.

Is he on the money, or will Weidman be too much for ‘The Dragon’?

We’ll find out in May at UFC 173.
