This Friday night, the Bellator 256 will deliver one of the best evenings of the year in the MMA. There, there are knockouts and guaranteed submissions, after several important last names appear on the billboard. Without a doubt, it will be a weekend full of good action in Mixed Martial Arts. With an impressive and legendary rematch, this event seeks to capture everyone’s eyes.
In these hours, the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion will face the current leader of the Heavyweight of Bellator, being a rematch more than expected by the fans. Lyoto machida (26-10 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) knocked out Ryan bader (27-6 MMA, 5-1 BMMA) in 2012 in the second round of the battle. Now the planets lined up to face them again.
Being so, Lyoto machida He said, ‘I don’t think about the last fight anymore. Even if you win or lose, it doesn’t matter. If you win, you are not going to step ahead of your opponent just because you have the victory. If you lose, it’s the same because it’s a new fight, a new fighter, eight years ago. It’s a long race, and I’ve seen a lot of young fighters stop in the middle of the road, but they have their reasons, and I respect that.
Do you want to fight for an interim belt? So can we unify it? Or do you want to wait for the royal title shot? That too is always a gamble. At the end of the day, I want to be active. Barring any injuries, if I go out and win this tournament, I’ll be ready a couple of months after those finals. It really depends on Bellator and him. Ryan bader, the former UFC legend.
