Trainer: Machida Should Get Title Shot With Win Over Munoz
“I think if Lyoto wins he gets the title shot but also you have Jacare, he did a great job in his last fight. I think he deserves the opportunity to fight for the belt. It doesn’t matter who is the champion. In my opinion everybody wants the belt, everybody fights for the belt. It’s a dream for all fighters so all guys in the top five or top ten deserve the chance to fight for the belt. Jacare deserves it, Lyoto deserves it. Mark works so hard, he deserves all the best also. So if guys have to fight, let’s fight.”
Famed Brazilian trainer and Lyoto Machida cornerman, Rafael Cordeiro, believes that Lyoto should be granted a title shot if he defeats Mark Munoz later this month.
