Lyoto Machida to train with Anderson Silva for Jon Jones

October 15, 2011

Lyoto Machida will have a big help on his trainings for the title fight against Jon Jones, at UFC 140. On a press conference yesterday in Toronto, Canada, the karate fighter revealed he’ll train with Anderson Silva, middleweight champion of the organization.

“Anderson called me and said he wants to go to my hometown (Belem), and I’m waiting for him to help me out”, said the former champion, who’s coming from a win over Randy Couture, exactly in Toronto. “I was welcomed by the local fans. I know I fought a legend, Randy Couture, and I want to put on a great show in December”.

The Brazilian bets on his experience to overcome Jones, who’ll be doing his fourth bout in 2011, the third worth the title. “It’s hard to say, but I believe I got a little advantage on the experience matter”, affirmed, aware of the skills of his opponent, who has defeated Shogun and Rampage, only two fighters to ever beat Machida. “I must overcome that with my techniques”.
