 MMA Chael Sonnen wants to face Lyoto Machida
posted 5 years ago

We'll Before we get to the update we would like to remind you that 2011 Breeders Cup Classic Odds have now been posted. According to Fighters Only, the bout between Lyoto Machida and Chael Sonnen is all but a done deal, and could take place on Oct. 8 at UFC 136 Odds in Houston. It would be contested as a light heavyweight bout.

UPDATE Upon hearing Chael Sonnen's comments about making a pit stop at 205 pounds to fight Lyoto Machida in a "tune-up fight," Machida had this to say: Bring it.

Speaking to Tatame in Brazil, Machida warmed to the idea of fighting Sonnen and said he thought it would be a favorable match-up for him. "I think that's great, I'm excited to do that," he said. "[Sonnen]'s coming back now, wants to fight, and I really think it's a good fight for me. If Sonnen really wants this fight, I'll sign it immediately, no problem at all."

Both fighters are ready to go and the bout could be made if the UFC finds the idea as compelling as the guys pushing for it. Take a look at UFC 132 Results from this past weekend.

Chael Sonnen was on hand at UFC 132 Odds in Las Vegas and told AOL's Ariel Helwani that he might make a little detour on his road back from suspension. Sonnen said that, while Wanderlei Silva doesn't interest him at all at 185 poinds, a fight with Lyoto Machida at 205 does.

"I don't know what the future will hold, there are plenty of guys out there to fight," Sonnen said. "There's a karate guy at 205 pounds. I might stop there on my back to 185 for a tune-up fight and take out Machida. But we'll see, we'll see where it goes."

The contentions between Sonnen and the Black House guys -- from Ed Soares to Anderson Silva to the Nogueira brothers to Lyoto Machida -- is well known. But, if put together, this is a fight that would particularly interesting for a variety of reasons. First of all, Sonnen will be fighting in his first bout since losing the epic title fight against Machida's training partner Anderson Silva in August 2010. There is a ring rust element, but more importantly it'd be the first look at Sonnen after being suspended for high levels of testosterone by the California State Athletic Commission. How will he look?

Next it would be intriguing because he'd be fighting at 205 pounds, which isn't his natural weight class. But given the stylistic match-up, you know he envisions taking Machida down and grinding rather than trying to knock him out.

Will he fight happen? We'll see. But there are some good fights for him at 185 as he returns, too. The two top names at middleweight are fellow wrestler Mark Munoz and the surging Brian Stann, who is coming off another impressive knockout of Jorge Santiago at UFC 130 Results . Think that Sonnen would like to avenge his friend Chris Leben, who lost to Stann last year? Now you're thinking like Sonnen.
