Lyoto Machida is seen here with his first ever BJJ coach, Alexey Cruz.  Machida recently got some exciting news as he will be filling in for Vitor Belfort on May 26th against middleweight champion Chris Weidman.  We knew we would be seeing Lyoto fighting for a title at 185 lbs but it came sooner than most expected.  Let’s hope The Dragon’s foot is fully healed for training camp as it did not look pretty after his last fight.
