Lyoto is one of the sons born to Japanese Shotokan karate master Yoshizo Machida, and his wife, Ana Claudia. From the age of three, Lyoto was thrown into martial arts, and10 years later he had progressed to earning his black belt in karate. Before he became professional, Lyoto became quite well known in amateur ranks, winning several tournaments including the 2001 Pan American Karate tournament, among others, and then learning Muay Thai in Thailand.

In 2003 he made his official professional debut against Kengo Wtanabe, which he won by unanimous decision. He continued in the same rhythm, moving to a 15-0 record by defeating some of the most famed fighters, including Stephen Bonnar, B.J. Penn, Sam Greco, Vernon White, Sam Hoger, Kazuhiro Nakamura, Thiago Silva and Rashad Evans, winning the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship from the latter. He then defended his title against Mauricio Rua, however, he lost in their next clash, which Rua won by KO. He then lost one more duel, this time to Quinton Jackson, but bounced back against Randy Couture, for which he was awarded Knockout of the Night honors. Inspired by this victory, Lytoto challenged UFC Light Heavyweight Champion at the time, Jon Jones, however, he lost by KO in the second round.

Lyoto continued with mixed results, and switched to Middleweight, defeating training partner Mark Munoz by KO, which won him his fourth award of ‘Konckout of the Night’, and then and fought against Chris Weidman for the title, but lost once again, by unanimous decision. His last victory came against C.B. Dollaway, for which he received Performance of the Night honors.

However, in early 2016 the UFC banned Lyoto from the association, because it was discovered that he was using a banned substance allegedly for better performance. Most recently, he has returned in a grappling contest against Jake Shields, which he lost in the final round.

Regarding his personal life, Lyoto is married to Fabyola, and the couple has two children, both sons.
