Yesterday came word that Hector Lombard would be making his UFC debut against Brian Stann at UFC on Fox 4. Today, the card got an elite light heavyweight fight. Brazilian website iG says that former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will meet Ryan Bader on August 4th in Los Angeles. The bout will be on the main Fox card.
Machida (17-3) hasn't competed since his loss to UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones by second-round submission at UFC 140 in December. After starting his career 16-0, he is just 1-3 in his last four fights.
