Lyoto Machida defeated Vitor Belfort via KO in R2
The legends square it off in the octagon and there’s lot of respect between these two. They’re circling and taking tie to read each others moves. Lyoto makes the first contact with a kick and follows up with more. Vitor tries to follow up but the elusive Lyoto backs up. First round goes in favour of the dragon. Second round begins ont he same note but this time Vitor is being more aggressive and moves ahead. Lyoto keeps circling away. They’re both nw inthe center of the octagon and boom comes a rear kick right through the center after distracting through the lead leg. Machida unloads and lands on the button. The same front kick that got Vitor knocked out against Anderson Silva. It’s the 10th KO win for the Dragon, who makes a point to call out Michael Bisping.
