UFC NEWS – Rumor Killer: Ed Soares Confirms Exclusively to BJPENN.COM That Machida is 100%

December 9, 2011 4:16 pm by Pedro Carrasco

Just moments ago we ran a report from sherdog.com’s Jordan Breen that the rumor around Toronto is that Lyoto Machida is very ill leading up to his UFC 140 title fight with Jon Jones.

Longtime BJPENN.COM friend and manager to the Brazilian former champion, Ed Soares, responded to us exclusively that Lyoto is in fact 100% healthy.

While I reached out to Ed just moments ago to ask for an official response, my friendship with the infamous managerial figure is such that if Machida was sick he would have confirmed off the record or asked me not to report, however instead of that he was willfully willing to respond with the following text message I have screen capped for you guys.

Machida supports can now sleep easy knowing their fighter is 100% going into his bout tomorrow night with Jon Jones.
