Sources close to mmajunkie.com revealed the news that the two light-heavyweight will be scheduled to meet in the Octagon August 4th in Los Angeles, California.
Lyoto Machida is 17–3 MMA (9-3 UFC) and has lost 3 out of his last 4 fights. Most recently he was chocked unconscious in the 2nd round vs. Jon Jones at UFC 140 in Toronto.
Ryan Bader is 14-2 MMA (7-2 UFC) and is coming off a unanimous decision win over Quinton Jackson in Japan for UFC 144.
A loss for either fighter could be disastrous to them if they ever want to be the #1 contender in the division anytime soon.
