"I admire Randy Couture for everything he did. Itís extraordinary to get to that age fighting with top fighters in such a high level. I got the privilege of facing him. This is going to be a honor to know that I made part of his history, it's priceless. Few people will get such an honor to fighting him. The intent is to change the attitude, to look for the aggressiveness, the entertainment. Weíre fighting professionals, it's not enough to perform, we have to please the audience. Iíve got to enhance some aspects of my game but I cannot totally change. I canít forget what made me champion. How can I throw it all away? How can I change my whole style?"
War Machdia!!!:happydancing:

This is going to be my first live UFC! I can't wait.

How is machida at fighting from his back? He's a bjj blackbelt isnt he? I don't think I remember seeing Lyoto fight from his back very much in the UFC. Anyone else have any info on this?

I'm really hoping he comes back and wins the belt again. It's amazing how many so called machida fans immediately hopped on the shogun bandwagon as soon as he won their fight. Lyoto rules!

I agree that he needs to find away to be more aggressive without changing to much! I liked it when he beat Tito!

Couture has won the LHW title twice. UFC 44 and 49.

Machida was on his back against Sokoudjou in the first round of their fight. Don't remember if he was able to get up, go for a sub, etc. Machida won in the 2nd round.
