NEW YORK – There are several reasons why Lyoto Machida is glad to have the opportunity to fight Chael Sonnen at Madison Square Garden during Bellator’s big June 14 event. Not the least among them is the fact Sonnen is a one-man hype squad, someone who seems destined to be a Scott Coker or Dana White-style promotional frontman when his fighting days come to an end. For the no-nonsense Machida (25-8 MMA, 1-0 BMMA), that means Sonnen (31-16-1 MMA, 2-2 BMMA) can do most of the talking between now and Bellator 222, so he can simply focus on getting ready for their light heavyweight contest.   “I couldn’t have a better opponent than Chael Sonnen. He knows how to promote the fight, and I don’t need to do anything,” Machida told MMA Junkie during Tuesday’s Bellator 222 media day
