Lyoto Machida

Following his quick, and impressive TKO win over CB Dollaway last night at UFC Fight Night 58, Lyoto Machida spoke to media members at the post-fight press conference to discuss who he would like to fight next.

He spoke through a translator, saying:

“Luke Rockhold has credentials in the UFC, so maybe a fight against him would be excellent,”

My last fight had been long, so this fight was short to compensate a bit. Seriously, C.B. is a tough guy, but the blow came in the right place, and he fell. I would now like to make a fight to take me for a new title fight.”

“It could be Luke Rockhold or another. I’m prepared to face anyone.”
