Description

Lyoto Carvalho Machida (born May 30, 1978) is a Japanese-Brazilian mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter who fights as a light heavyweight in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and is the current UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. As of June 2009[update], Machida is undefeated in his professional MMA career, and in his UFC career has yet to lose a round. He is currently ranked as the #1 light-heavyweight fighter in the world[3] and the #4 pound-for-pound fighter[4] by Sherdog.

The son of a first-generation Japanese-Brazilian Shotokan karate master, Yoshizo Machida (町田 嘉三, Machida Yoshizō?), Machida holds an undefeated record that includes victories over former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz, former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin, current UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn and former UFC light-heavyweight champion Rashad Evans. Machida is noted for his karate-influenced striking style that implements an unorthodox stance and an elusive strategy.[5] On May 23, 2009, Machida won the UFC light-heavyweight championship from the previously undefeated Rashad Evans by knockout in the second round.[6]

Lyoto represents the emergence of Shotokan Karate and related practices as a successful fighting style within MMA competition.

The best K-1 community online!

The focus is on building a community that offers more to the users than any other K-1 website. The focus is also on that the community should be totally user driven, with the users as main writers of content. Who would for example write a better fight report than a fan who actually was at the fight? Or who could write a more interesting fighter profile than the fan who loves and really knows about a fighter? We believe that this approach will lead to that fansofk1.com has the most interesting K-1 information.
