Lyoto Machida: ‘I deserve the title shot’

February 17, 2014 9:32 am by BJPENN.COM News

“I don’t know what happened. I did some kicking and he defended with his knee. I don’t know if I broke my foot. I didn’t think about my foot during the fight, I just tried to keep my focus on the fight. He’s a tough opponent. But he kept his hand down. I saw I could kick his head, leg and body. I had confidence in my kicks. Now I’ve found my weight. There are a lot of big guys at 205. Now I’m a big guy. I can fight everybody with my technique, strength and power. I don’t know. Dana White is the boss and can decide everything. I think I deserve the title shot. We’ll see.”

After his second straight win in the UFC’s middleweight division, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida, believes that his time has come to fight for the 185 pound title.

Currently, Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort will contend for the crown held by Weidman, but after that???

Does Machida deserve a shot or should it go to somebody else?
