After the fight against Thiago. Lyoto talked to the press, took pictures with fans, signed some autographs, went back to his hotel room, called his wife Fabaola, went out to dinner with his team and then went to bed.
At dinner, I asked Lyoto when he knew in the ring that he would win the fight. He said, "the first time that I punched Thiago, I did not hit him dead on and he fell down, that is when I knew I was much stronger than he was". He also told me that when he landed the KO punch he hit Thiago accurately and saw his eyes roll back and instantly knew Thiago was out.

The Machida's have a martial arts studio in Belem, Brazil where the family makes a living by teaching Shotokan Karate. The studio is a mix between a gym and a karate institution. The people of Belem have memberships to the gym and parents drop their kids off to learn karate from the Machida's and other instructors.
This is the studio where Lyoto trains 6 days a week. The studio definitely embodies what you expect from a genuine martial arts doji: tradition, descipline, spirit and wisdom.
I know there are many Lyoto Machida fans throughout the world who want to see more of this exceptional martial artist. I have been fortunate enough to become friends with Lyoto due to the nature of the business I am in, exporting the acai berry from his hometown of Belem, Brazil. This Blog is for all the US and Worldwide fans who want to catch a glimpse into the life of Lyoto Machida.
