Machida answers back with a body kick.

UFC 224 victor Lyoto Machida has called for a shot at the former-middleweight champion Michael Bisping as the Englishman edges towards his retirement. Lyoto used a front kick to try to feel out his range a bit while Vitor Belfort looked as if he wanted to counterstrike, but really didn't do anything, except throw three combos that didn't land. Belfort appeared to be out cold from the kick, and Machida picked up his second straight win with the highlight reel finish. Belfort was knocked out in the exact same way and fashion against The Spider.

The 41-year-old Brazilian legend then took off his gloves and placed them in the Octagon, signaling that he was retiring. I would like this fight because Michael Bisping is a former champion, and this is a fight that could happen in the future. A near-duplicate of the former-champ Anderson Silva's own iconic KO of Belfort back in 2011, we could well have another contender for Knockout of the Year on our hands.

Israel however, which has always been concerned about Iranian influence in the Middle East welcomed Trump's decision. As a result of air strikes of Israel on Iranian facilities in Syria killed at least 27 people.

Bisping is also contemplating retirement at the moment.

The Count has recently denied rumors that he'd be fighting Nick Diaz or Luke Rockhold, but has noted that he's likely already retired but hasn't made it official yet. The latter has also said that if he fights again, the bout will be his last. I would like to fight Michael Bisping. He could do a lot worse than the ever-classy Machida, who said he wasn't necessarily planning to use the front kick against Belfort on Saturday, and instead, an opening simply presented itself. "He might retire sometime soon, I could retire sometime soon, and people asked for that fight, so it's a fight that interests me". "I want to thank my team, my family and my fans".
