Chinzo Machida: Lyoto Told Me To Throw The Knee

By BJPENN.COM News - November 27, 2013

“I was doing well, then I connected the knee and it was over. It was a nice knockout. Everybody’s talking about it. I was focused to get the win. I wasn’t worried to get a knockout or something like that. I went there to do my job, to do my best, and it all happened naturally.Lyoto and Kenny Johnson, my wrestling coach, told me that he was a wrestler, so that type of knee is a good way to counter against a wrestler. One week before the fight, Lyoto told me to work more on that. I trained it a little, but I didn’t train the way it happened in the fight.”

The older and much smaller Machida brother, Chinzo (left), is coming off of a highlight reel flying knee K.O., which happened last weekend at RFA 11.

With his sites set on the UFC, Machida gives credit to his brother, former UFC light-heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida for setting him on the course for what was an amazing finish.
