MMA H.E.A.T.’s Wade Eck caught up with former UFC LHW Champ and #5 ranked middleweight Lyoto Machida, 10 days before his rematch with Dan Henderson. Lyoto talks about Hendo’s H-Bomb and his strengths as a wrestler; he discusses Yoel Romero’s 6 month USADA punishment; he shares his thoughts on Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold’s first fight, as well as their UFC 199 rematch; he praises Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson’s karate-based fighting style; shares predictions for UFC 198 in Brazil (Werdum / Miocic, Silva / Hall, Belfort / Souza); talks about training with TUF 23’s Khalil Rountree; and tells the story of meeting Vince Vaughn with Rener Gracie.

** BREAKING NEWS 4/13/2016: “The UFC organization was made aware today by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), the independent administrator of the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, that Lyoto Machida declared the usage of a banned substance during an out-of-competition sample collection last week. Machida stated that he was unaware that the substance was prohibited both in and out of competition and, in accordance with the UFC Anti-Doping Policy, his disclosure of usage will be taken into consideration by USADA during any potential results management and adjudication process.
Given this information, UFC officials have elected to remove Machida from his scheduled bout against Dan Henderson this Saturday in Tampa, Fla. Henderson will be re-booked for a new bout in the near future.”

    • Yeah but it was DHEA which should not be on the banned list. USADA are out of control. They remind me of some kind of big brother program. Lyoto is a pure athlete. It's funny how so many fighters don't get tested. Like there big money fighters. DHEA is not even that affected. USADA should send each fighter an updated pamphlet with all of the latest up to date banned substances. Instead they are quickly to show up anywhere and test a fighter and suspend them but tell them they should be responsible. These are professional fighters. They have a lot on there plate. Send them pamphlets. USADA love to take money from the fighters. And where does his money go? MMA Heat you should investigate this. Do some real research. When holly fought Rhonda she was tested but not by USADA. And her test was never made public?

  2. Machida still one of my all time favorites. Much more respectful than Bag of Bones Jones, dropping opponents to the mat while they're unconscious like the piece of crap he is. Pretty sweet how he talks about another one of my favorite fighters, Wonderboy.
