It was first reported by UFC officials to a Brazilian newspaper today that Ryan Bader (7-2, UFC) will face off against Lyoto Machida (9-3, UFC) at UFC on FOX 4, on Aug 4th in the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
Bader’s won his last two fights over Jason Brilz and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Bader said on his twitter just hours ago: Looks like it’s out already, not official yet but Machida on Aug 4th. Very excited to have the opportunity to fight
Lyoto Machida will look to rebound from his loss at UFC 140 to Jon Jones for the UFC’s light heavyweight title where he was guillotined in the 4th round. The former UFC light heavyweight champion has struggled in the past couple years, losing three of his last four.
