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.

Bader (14-2) is coming off the biggest win of his career over Quinton Jackson at UFC 144 in February. The Ultimate Fighter 8 winner is currently on a two-fight winning streak.

The only other scheduled bouts for the card this far are the aforementioned Lombard vs. Stann bout and a lightweight bout between Terry Etim and Joe Lauzon.
