Lyoto Machida would like to challenge himself against Brock Lesnar

UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida talks about the history of stand up fighters from Brazil, and the comparison between him bringing attention to Machida Karate the same same way Royce Gracie did BJJ.

Machida goes on to say his focus right now is on defending his title at light heavyweight, but in the future he would definitely like to challenge himself against Brock Lesnar at heavyweight. Machida also discusses possibly being a coach on the next season of The Ultimate Fighter.

And just for fun the interviewer asks Lyoto to put together a “dream card” for the UFC’s return to Brazil, something that the Brazilians would love to see. In the main event he picks Anderson Silva vs. Fedor! Make it happen Dana!
