UFC on Fox 15: Machida vs. Rockhold fight card shaping up

An early look at the April 18th UFC on Fox 15 show in Newark, New Jersey, where middleweights Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold will battle in a five-round main event.

The UFC is headed back to New Jersey for their next Fox event on April 18th, and the main event is perhaps one of the more anticipated non-title middleweight bouts in recent memory. Former LHW champion and recent MW title challenger Lyoto Machida will take on ex-Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in the main event at the Prudential Center in Newark, with the winner having himself a strong case for a title shot, particularly for Rockhold, who has yet to fight for the UFC belt.

There's only a handful of fights booked for this card, with the most notable one being lightweight Paul Felder getting a big step up in competition vs. Jim Miller. Felder is coming off the spinning backfist KO of Danny Castillo, while Miller is recovering from his own KO loss to Donald Cerrone.

Here's the current bout lineup, with more to be announced within the next few weeks.

Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold
Jim Miller vs. Paul Felder
Paige VanZant vs. Felice Herrig
Aljamain Sterling vs. Manny Gamburyan
Eddie Gordon vs. Chris Dempsey
