Man Machida is the guy who brought me into this sport (ufc 98). Every dog has their reign, he should’ve stopped on top after Chael but I guess it’s hard to say no to a 6 figure paycheck. lol his nose is hella broken too, hope he can land flush again on Bader but Bader looks better physically.

I like Douma, he’s an acquaintance, but I think judges got that fight wrong.
