UFC 175 Video: Lyoto Machida gets cheered on by Brazil's World Cup Football Team

Watch Brazil's national soccer team cheer wildly for Lyoto Machida at UFC 175.

While the entire world has been glued to the World Cup, this weekend had a slight role reversal as the Brazilian National Football Team decided to cheer on their compatriot in Lyoto Machida during UFC 175. During a short break from their games, the soccer team decided to watch the PPV together and defender Thiago Silva (not to be confused with the MMA fighter with the same name) posted their reaction to the main event bout.

Although he came up short in gaining history as just the third man to win championships in two divisions, Machida fought to a spirited decision against Chris Weidman that had both men take Fight of the Night honors.

The Brazilian National Team has made it to the semi finals of the World Cup, and will next take on Germany on July 8.
