Machida: UFC Prefers Liddell As Champion

Lyoto Machida

As most, if not all UFC fighters probably did, they caught Saturday’s UFC 86.  And at least one fighter thinks that Quinton Jackson beat Forrest Griffin – fellow light heavyweight Lyoto Machida; according to Tim Ngo of, Machida told Brazilian magazine Tatame, “Quinton defeated Forrest, but they give it to Forrest.”  He also said that he thinks that the UFC would prefer that Chuck Liddell be the light heavyweight champion because of his marketability.  Machida would also add, “I think that now they [the UFC] are going to put him [Forrest Griffin] against Chuck Liddell to him to take the belt again.”
