Machida talks strategy for Soko
graciemag.com
GRACIEMAG.com : What will be your strategy to face the explosive and strong Sokoudjou? Lyoto : I am a strategist. I will compensate his strength with my technique. I am prepared for everything, if he wants to take it to the ground, I am prepared. It will be 3 rounds, the first 2 minutes will be the hardest, so I will have to hold back a little, because he cannot keep the explosion for the whole 3 rounds.

Silva chomping for prime Chuck
(sports.yahoo.com)
LAS VEGAS – It wasn't uncommon when Woody Hayes was the football coach at Ohio State for the players to arrive at the practice facility in the morning to find Hayes asleep on a couch with game film flapping on the projector. Hayes had stayed up all night breaking down film. John Hackleman, Chuck Liddell's mixed martial arts coach, has no such need to stay up all night breaking down film of Wanderlei Silva, Liddell's opponent at UFC 79 on Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

The Iceman Will Stick to His Plan

LAS VEGAS — The late nights in the country’s trendiest hot spots were never an issue when he pummeled Tito Ortiz. The paunch around the midsection was ignored when he iced Renato Sobral. The string of celebrity girlfriends was passed off as Chuck being Chuck when he knocked out Randy Couture.

RICH CLEMENTI HAS 'NO LOVE' FOR GUILLARD
(mmaweekly.com)
Perhaps never in the history of mixed martial arts has someone’s nickname been so poignant when it is applied to an upcoming match-up as Rich Clementi’s when used as a backdrop for his upcoming fight with Melvin Guillard at UFC 79 this Saturday in Las Vegas. “No Love.” Indeed there is absolutely nothing but distain from Clementi to Guillard, a classic case of veteran opposing a young rising star, two people from very different ideologies colliding in what could be the grudge match of 2007.
