    It’s funny how a lot of Brazilians put a double E on the end of certain words like changee, campee, lifee, timee, it sounds funny. Renato Laranja (Rhasaan Orange) does it very funny as well.

  2. Ryan says:

    I for one believe Bader will not be able to touch Machida in the octagon. I do like bader and i think he’s come a long way since the ultimate fighter, but Machida is to quick and to allusive for him. I for one could see Machida knocking him out of submitting him if needed, the only way i see it going baders way is if some how machida slips and bader lands one right on the button, n i just don’t see that happening

  3. DAMN! says:

    Fuck Steven Seagal. Lyoto has had more success without him than with him.

  4. Machida’s got class. Very gracious about the Seagal comment. I don’t know why this Ariel guy keeps pushing ‘the honourable sensei steven seagal’ every time he talks to fighters.
    I respect seagal’s knowledge but there’s nothing honourable about telling the world you recently taught a black belt how to throw a front snap kick. I think that was the very first kick i learned and probably learned it from Bruce Lee or Chuck Norris.

    Ariel, give it a rest, you’re discrediting yourself. enjoyed the rest of it. Leave Seagal out of it.

    Go Machida! Luv yur humility, and thanks for speaking English to us ignorant mono- linguist north americans. And God bless you and your family here.

    Ariel is a dickhead he’s becoming quite cocky …. Won’t be long until someone really puts him in his place !

  6. Dee says:

    Lyoto biggest problem is that he’s mentally not ready for battle. If you can get to him or scrape him a little then he will quit. He gave the Jones fight up after he got cut. Shogun clipped him once and the fight was over. I like Lyoto but he has to take control of his nerves and weather through the storm a lot better.

    • Paul Harris says:

      I wouldn’t call a huge elbow to the face from Jones that blurred his vision a cut that caused him to give up the fight. He stated in an interview that he couldn’t see after that elbow. That’s why he walked into the punch that dropped him. Make no mistake, it was jones wrestling and elbows that stopped Machida. His striking played only part of the role. Machida can still out strike him. Jones knew that. That’s why I’m the second he took him down and dropped that elbow. Smart move, he was totally outclass in the stand up. Jones is a champ because of his smarts
