the wise Lyoto Machida tells UOL on his feelings about not being a national icon as his teammates Anderson Silva and Junior dos Santos, since his reign came prior to the boom of MMA in Brazil: "I believe everything happens at the correct time, and if it didn’t happen for me it’s because it wasn’t my time. Bad moments don’t exist, (what does exist) are moments of learning. That’s what happened to me. Everything that appeared to be bad was good for my personal and professional improvement"
