Lyoto Machida may want to give his title belt back to the UFC. It sounds like the light heavyweight hardware screws with the guy mentally. Forrest Griffin told Cagewriter he lost his motivation and went through the motions before his loss to Rashad Evans. Evans said yesterday at the TUF 10 Media Day that he was depressed, listless and frustrated before his fight at UFC 98. It all led to a rough performance in which Evans couldn't pull the trigger and allowed Machida to dictate the pace of the fight:
"I felt weeks before the fight I was losing but there was nothing I could do about it. Something was missing but I couldn't put my finger on it. If you ever be emotionally messed up you can't really say (why), but you just want to cry. You don't know why, you just feel it inside"
