Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson Planned For Nov. 9th Brazil Card

On Tuesday’s installment of UFC Tonight, it was announced that the UFC is looking to book former champions Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson against one another for a fight November 9th in Brazil. The fight would be a rematch of their October 2006 Pride 32 bout, which resulted in a decision win for Henderson and a steroid suspension for Belfort.

UFC Tonight did not specify what weight the fight would take place at; both men have campaigned at middleweight, light heavyweight and heavyweight in the past. However, it will be a safe bet that the TRT will be coursing freely through the veins of both future hall of famers, though, as Brazil ain’t exactly Nevada or New Jersey when it comes to drug testing credibility.

If Belfort agrees to the fight, it will be an interesting move given how fickle and picky he’s been with proposed match-ups in recent months. He’s turned down Tim Kennedy, ignored an offer from Lyoto Machida and said he wouldn’t fight at middleweight unless it was for the belt, before challenging Chael Sonnen (at what weight, no one knows). Sonnen accepted publicly but now it appears Belfort will go for Henderson — who is on a two-fight losing streak compared to Belfort’s two-fight win streak.

Machida Accepts Belfort Fight, Says ‘What’s up Now?’


(Where’s your smart mouth now, playboy? | Photo via GQ Magazine Brasil)

Here at CP, we’ve been doing our best to bring you the latest developments between former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida and UFC match maker Vitor Belfort. It first appeared that Belfort would fight Tim Kennedy, then that Belfort would fight Chael Sonnen, then that he would face Machida. When that plan stalled, the totally retired Nick Diaz was offered a fight with Machida at middleweight.

Now, Machida is saying that he has accepted a fight with Belfort and is using the “Phenom’s” own words to embarrass Vitor. “I’ve accepted the fight,” Machida recently told Globo.com, at least that’s what google translate tells us.

“And [I am] sure Vitor Belfort will accept, because, as he said, your son does not run from a fight.”

Ok, so here’s what that last part is about. Last year, when Jon Jones needed a last-minute replacement fight after Dan Henderson and Chael Sonnen had conspired against him and all of humanity, Machida was offered the title shot. He turned it down.

Something about needing more time to prepare to get choked out again, if we recall correctly. When Vitor Belfort accepted the fight against Jones, he seemed to passively aggressively put down Machida.

“I will fight Jones,” Belfort said back then.

“As a real Brazilian, as the [Brazilian National Anthem] says, ‘you will see that your son does not run from a fight.’”

Nicely played, Lyoto. That’s the type of acerbic wit that can only be sharpened by bitterness from losing decisions and having to drink a glass of urine each morning.

Do you think Vitor will accept the Machida fight and take him on in Brazil, taters? And, do you think Belfort will manage to pull Machida out of his shy shell and make the former dominant champ scrap?

Potential Freak Show of the Day: UFC Offers Nick Diaz a Fight Against Lyoto Machida at Middleweight


(Did we learn *nothing* from the death of Fat BJ?? / Video via K1)

Now that a broken heart is pulling Nick Diaz out of his hypothetical bullshit retirement, the UFC is trying to lure the anti-social Stocktonite back into a major fight. During a Q&A session in Boston yesterday, UFC president Dana White revealed that he had offered Diaz a very unexpected matchup for his Octagon return:

“I talked to Diaz today, and I made him an offer, so we’ll see what happens,” White said. “He had been talking about going to 185 pounds. [Lyoto] Machida has been talking about going to 185 pounds. So we wanted to see if he wanted to fight Machida at 185…They said they’d get back to me.”

But wait a minute, wasn’t Dana trying to set up Machida vs. Vitor Belfort?

“I wanted Machida to fight Vitor Belfort, but Vitor Belfort is his own matchmaker, apparently,” White joked. “He wants to make his own fights.”

Dana White Eyeing Lyoto Machida vs. Vitor Belfort Middleweight Fight at UFC 167


(“Alright, enough horsing around. Your mother spent all day making this stew and I’ll be damned if we’re not going to eat it.”) 

Times have been tough for Lyoto Machida since the era bearing his name came to a screeching halt at UFC 113. The once seemingly invincible/untouchable Brazilian has dropped 4 of his past 7 fights, including a split decision loss to Phil Davis at UFC 163 that sucked as much as we all knew it would. The fact that “The Dragon” has been forced to drink the urine of complete strangers just to survive says more about his dire situation than anything else, really.

On the other side of the coin, fellow Brazilian and occasional training partner of Machida, Vitor Belfort, has seen a career resurgence as of late, knocking out Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold in back-to-back contests. And while it’s rare to see a fighter coming off a loss paired against one coming off a win, that’s exactly what Dana White has in mind. The Baldfather recently told Ariel Helwani, who in turn relayed the message on MMA Tonight, that he “loved” the idea of seeing a Machida vs. Belfort co-main event at UFC 167, which goes down in Vegas on November 16th. Here’s the catch: The fight would be held at middleweight.

Given Belfort’s recent refusal to fight anyone (looking at you, Tim) at 185 unless it’s for a title shot, this seems like wishful thinking on White’s part. There’s also the fact that Lyoto has never fought below 205, although he has stated in the past that he would be willing to make the cut for the right fight. On top of all that, Belfort has already called out Chael Sonnen and would stand next to no chance of getting licensed in Vegas with a TRT exemption. So yeah, expect Belfort to shoot this matchup down any. second. now.

Sad Video of The Day: Lyoto Machida Now Drinking Urine of Complete Strangers


(Props: Panico na Band via Magnum1977)

Ok, we’re starting to suspect that Lyoto Machida‘s piss-drinking habit has more to do with exhibitionism than supposed health benefits. That the former UFC light heavyweight champion learned to drink urine from his father (writing that sentence just gave me the creeps) is well documented. It is clear now, however, that Lyoto’s urine addiction is out of control.

No longer does he partake solely within the confines of secure training environments where the waste liquid he ingests can be trusted to be “clean,” as the video evidence above shows Machida is now drinking the urine of complete strangers. That is, as long as they drink his urine as well. Clearly, this has all just become a game to pee-pee party boy Lyoto. Sad.

And, no more jokes — this is just gross.

Who could have guessed that this is what “The Machida Era” would entail. We’re not saying his golden showers are directly contributing to his lackluster performances in recent years, but how could they be helping?

What do you think, nation? Is this more or less disgusting/erotic than Joe Rogan forcing blonde chicks to guzzle donkey semen? And, will this writer ever be able to redeem himself after cashing checks for writing about both of these episodes? Our answers: More disgusting, less erotic, and no.

By the way, the woman featured in this clip is Pânico na TV reporter Sabrina Sato whose resume includes “having her body covered with bees, lighting candles by fart, being buried alive, allowing a scorpion to sting her on her bare backside, belching the lyrics to songs/ stories, and even eating bugs.” WIFE MATERIAL.

‘UFC 163: Aldo vs. Korean Zombie’ Aftermath: The Wrong Hands


(Photo courtesy of Josh Hedges/Getty Images.)

By George Shunick

If you dropped upwards of $50 on UFC 163 last night, you’re probably pretty frustrated right about now. This isn’t to say that UFC 163 was the worst pay-per-view in recent memory – although it certainly wasn’t the best – but that it failed to meet expectations across the board. The main event saw a fairly solid fight end early after the challenger, Chang Sung Jung, dislocated his shoulder and the champion, Jose Aldo, took advantage of that fact in brutal fashion. Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Lyoto Machida somehow managed to lose to Phil Davis despite landing harder, cleaner strikes, more strikes overall, dictating the exchanges, taking virtually no damage, stuffing 80% of Davis’ takedowns, and being better by virtually any acceptable metric. And while there were some bright spots from the other fights, it just wasn’t enough to overshadow that feeling that what should have been simply wasn’t in the fights we really cared about.

The main event itself, in a way, was hampered from the get-go. In the first round the Korean Zombie checked an Aldo leg kick, possibly breaking Aldo’s right foot. As a result, the champion was forced to call upon his other weapons. In particular, he favored the jab he developed prior to his last fight against Frankie Edgar. Because he’s an exceptional fighter, Aldo was able to still take the fight to Jung without his primary weapon, but began to slow in the third. Whether that’s because Aldo is getting too large for the division and was fatigued from cutting weight or because fighting on a broken foot kind of sucks, I don’t know. But Jung began to gain some momentum heading into the fourth round. There, as he threw a right cross, Aldo countered with a left hook over Jung’s outstretched arm. As Jung’s arm was exposed to the awkward momentum generated from colliding with Aldo’s hook, his shoulder dislocated. The Korean Zombie gritted his teeth and tried to pop the arm back in, but Aldo smelled blood, took him down, and unloaded with ground and pound. While it may not have been enough to stop a fight against a healthy Jung, Herb Dean noticed Jung was unable to defend himself and stopped it.
