Bader vs. Machida booked for UFC on FOX 4
TUF winner vs. former UFC champ.
According to UFC.com, former Ultimate Fighter winner Ryan Bader is scheduled to fight another former UFC light heavyweight champion--Lyoto Machida.
Bader is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 144 in Japan. Machida last fought against Jon Jones at UFC 140 last December, losing to the champion via standing guillotine. "The Dragon" passed out and fell face first on the mat--something he's certainly not used to--and will look to put Bader out cold at UFC on FOX 4 in August.
Coming off of back-to-back wins over Jason Brilz and Quinton Jackson, Ryan "Darth" Bader has verbally agreed to face former light heavyweight champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida at UFC on Fox August 4.
