    "I don’t think about retirement yet,” Machida said. "I want to continue fighting. I want to be champion in this division. I dedicate most of my time to this goal. I believe that I will think about stopping when I don’t feel challenged anymore.


    "In the meantime, I will continue working on developing my gym in Los Angeles, Machida Academy. We teach the karate methodology, bringing back the history of the martial art, the attacks that stopped being used when the martial art became a sport, and that my brother and I use in the cage. We’re also finding a way to share with the Brazilian people the philosophy that I’ve learned through the years in the sport.”

    Have him fight Bisping in London for their retirement fight.


    You’re welcome UFC.

    I love Machida and in a perfect world he should retire. But we all gotta make $$$, for some reason.

    Yeah this is the fight to make.

    I think both guys should retire after this fight. Both have nothing to prove.

    I love Machida. Time for fun fights. His contender days are over. I want to see him knockout Dollaway. Don't care what division.

    That's an amazing idea it's exactly the same thing Dan Hardy should have said after Bisping lost to Gastelum. Oh hang on that is what he said when Bisping lost to Gastelum so I guess the UFC should be thanking (and paying) him, oh hang on they do don't they.

    I’m waiting for the second Machida era. Also, that young guy Erik Silva looks promising.

    I guess if he wants more head trauma that's his own choice as an informed adult. These guys make bad decisions in the twilight of their careers.

    He should go into the Mexican restaurant business.

    Imagine: "MACHIDA FAJITA"

    I would eat there.

    Machida should be on fun fight duty from here on out. Unless we get rid of USADA, in which case he'll be GTG in a few cycles months.

    Big Machida fan. Tired of seeing him get wrecked.

    Fuck, let him fight Nick. Or ask Rashad to stick around at MW for another fight.

    I'm sensing a full liddell-like slide for machida on his way out.
