Lyoto Machida wasn’t looking to make a specific statement with his post-knockout pose after dropping Vitor Belfort at UFC 224. But with another highlight added to his career, he wants people to know that he’s “back” and ready for his next fight.
Lyoto Machida’s bout against Vitor Belfort at UFC 224 wasn’t exactly a spectacular fight, per sec. But, it had a spectacular end. What was largely a six-minute staring contest ended in the blink of an eye, when the ‘Dragon’ uncorked a signature snapping front kick to the jaw that sent Belfort crashing to the canvas, unconscious.
