With his third career "Knockout of the Night" win at this past weekend's UFC 129 event, former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (17-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) reversed a trend of recent defeats that had many MMA observers questioning his viability as a current UFC contender.

The leaping front kick finish that appeared part Anderson Silva, part "Karate Kid," led Randy Couture to call it a career – not to mention schedule a dental appointment to replace a few incisors.

Following the win, Machida admitted the pressure was on heading into the fight. Now he's hoping to use a refined approach to training (as well as Steven Seagal's advice) to make it back to the top.

Make it sound like Randy was not already saying that he was done if they don't want to offer him anything more.

I wouldn't doubt he thinks that. He probably influenced the Seal that shot Osama through one of his old movies.

Brazilian sources say that Machida and Silva eat KIX before every fight:

I really wonder who his next opponent will be. I can't really think of anybody right now.
