Lyoto Machida vs. Ryan Bader: Head to Toe Breakdown

In what is in effect a title eliminator bout, Ryan Bader will look to make it three-straight victories when he takes on former UFC champion Lyoto Machida.

Already a pivotal bout in the light heavyweight division, the contest gained even more importance as Dana White let it be known the winner may be rewarded with a title shot.

Machida brings with him a blend of styles but is predominantly a karate fighter on the feet. He used his elusive style to capture UFC gold by defeating Rashad Evans at UFC 98. Bader was on the cusp of a title shot but was soundly defeated by the current champion Jon Jones.

Both men will be attempting to secure a rematch with the UFC champion Jones by putting on an impressive performance.
