Inside the Mind of a Champion

Lyoto Machida is one of the top light heavyweight mixed martial artists in the world today.  From a very young age it was his dream to become a World Champion, and he achieved that dream in 2009 by defeating Rashad Evans to become the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion.  Only a short time later, his belt was taken from him by Mauricio “Shogun” Rua.  Since that time Machida has been on a journey to reclaim his dream, the UFC Light Heavyweight belt. 

In the below video Machida talks at length about his journey back to the top and his philosophy on life and martial arts.  If you want to understand the mentality of a World Champion martial artist, this is a great video to study.
