As if there wasn’t enough news on War Machine, it’s worth reporting that maybe America doesn’t have the alleged criminal’s back.
But his Lawyer is all in.
Brandon Sua, the man with the task of finding War Machine “not guilty” has issued a statement on his client’s behalf to maybe paint the troubled fighter in a more positive light.
The lawyer told a television station in Los Angeles:
“The hardest thing for my client is seeing the responses from the media, the public. There’s been a lot of statements on one side,” Sua claimed. “The media has done a good job of painting my client as a monster, but my client is not a monster. He is a good guy.”
War Machine has yet to officially address the media since the incident (if you don’t count his Twitter) and Sua addressed this response as well, “A statement will come from my client when the time is right.” and also said that Jon Koppenhaver didn’t do “anything illegal.”
#2 Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida is in the works to take on the 5th ranked Luke Rockhold according to Luke’s training partner, Daniel Cormier.
Cormier made mention that no date or venue has been named but the bout will probably occur before the end of the year.
Machida recently was defeated in a 5 round slugfest against current UFC Middleweight Champion, Chris Weidman in the main event of UFC 175 after winning two in a row defeating Mark Munoz in the first round of their UFC Fight Night 30 scrap and edging out Gegard Mousasi by unanimous decision when they engaged in battle at UFC Fight Night 36.
Rockhold is riding on top of back-to-back stoppage victories over Costas Philipou via first round body kick at UFC Fight Night 35 and he submitted Tim Boetsch via inverted kimura at UFC 172 in the first round of their bout back in April.
