Lyoto Machida

Lyoto Machida is coming off a loss to Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight championship in July, and is gearing up for his UFC Fight Night 58 bout against CB Dollaway.

Machida spoke to MMAFighting to discuss his plans to derail Dollaway when the two face off in December.

“He’s a complete fighter. He has some flaws, of course, but he has a good stand up game, good takedowns and a good ground game. He’s a complete fighter, and that makes him dangerous. He hits hard, but I believe I can stop him.”

“I don’t think (it will last five rounds). I believe I can finish this fight earlier. I’m not underestimating him, but I’ve learned a lot in my past fights. I have learned a lot in my fight against (Chris) Weidman, so it’s likely that I will finish this fight before the fifth round.

“Whatever it takes. I’m training hard on my grappling skills and my striking, so I want to finish him with a knockout or a submission.”
