Video: Lyoto Machida talks philosophy and staying hungry in advance of UFC on Fox 4 fight

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida, who fights Ryan Bader on August 4, 2012 in Los Angeles, California, in the co-main event of UFC on FOX 4, took some time to speak to the UFC fanbase about his life philosophy in this new video.

In it, he discusses real issues like relaxing once you've made it to the top and achieved your goals as well as finding that hunger again to work his way back to being the division's king.

"The Dragon" discusses some of the fundamentals of his half Japanese heritage and the karate way of life he was brought up with all-the-while showcasing some of his training in the background. It's an valuable way to spend five minutes of your time.

It was recently announced that Machida could be in line for a UFC light heavyweight title shot if he's the most impressive fighter this Saturday night. Hopefully he can find that inner hunger he's been talking about.
