Machida Looking For Third Shogun Fight & Potentially Coaching TUF Against His Rival

April 18, 2012 11:17 am by Jamie McAllister

“It is a process of restarting and I know that it never is easy to climb up again. I’m looking for my evolution in the training, to improve even more. Since I arrived in UFC, I am here to fight for the belt and be on the top. I will have much work ahead but let’s see how things go,”

“I think yeah it would be a good time for the third bout with Shogun but, who knows? This duel might be kept aside for a bigger stuff, a reality show… It would sell even more and I think this fight would have a heavier appeal”

“I understand Dan Henderson’s position. We are in a sport in which there is respect and professionalism. I know he is in the search for the title and I guess he did not want to risk it in this moment of his career and miss the this opportunity, so is understandable”

Lyoto Machida talks about his future as well as a potential third fight with Shogun & Dan Henderson’s current position in the division in an interview with UOL Esporte.

Machida angling for a third bout against Shogun ? Both men coming off losses to Jon Jones and Dan Henderson respectively the fight makes sense.

Would you like to see Machida vs Shogun three and a potential season of The Ultimate Fighter with them as coaches ?
