Brazilian MMA champion Lyoto Machida faced her fourth consecutive defeat this Friday, at the Bellator 281 joint event in London, UK. If past mistakes were in the judges’ decision, this time the former UFC champion was eliminated in the first round by Englishman Fabian Edwards. The main event saw American Logan Storley defeat Englishman Michael “Venom” Page for judges’ decision to win the welterweight transition belt (up to 77.1 kg) – line champion Yaroslav Amosov is out of action as he strengthens the Ukrainian army. in the war against Russia.

Lyoto could not do much against Edwards. The Englishman hit his left elbow on the way home from goal and injured the Brazilian in the second half of the first round. Machida stepped back and tried to recover, but Edwards climbed up and landed on the left hook which took the former UFC champion down. He only needed a few more punches to finish the fight in just 3 18 minutes.
In the main bout, “Anderson Silva English” had a similar Brazilian bout against Chael Sonnen … With the exception that he had no jiu-jitsu to present in the final column. As was the case in 2010, Page had a few good events in the standings, but Storley brought him down every round and controlled the ground fight. “MVP” had his best time in the fourth round, with jabs and straights, but otherwise he did little damage and showed no ability to pull himself out of the American claws. In the end, the judge scored three rounds in two and favored Page, but the other two saw Storley win.
