Lyoto Machida-Ryan Bader Tabbed For UFC On FOX 4

According to a report by iG, a Brazilian news outlet, Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader have signed on to face each other at UFC on FOX 4.

The event is set for Los Angeles on August 4.

Machida would be another former UFC light heavyweight champion for Bader to face, as “Darth” defeated Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in his most recent fight.

Bader, a former winner of The Ultimate Fighter, has also been inside the Octagon with the likes of Tito Ortiz (a submission loss) and current UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones (also a submission defeat).

“Looks like it’s out already, not official yet but Machida on Aug 4th. Very excited to have the opportunity to fight at UFC on FOX,” Bader posted on Twitter.

Machida is just 1-3 in his last four fights, including a loss to Jones last December. He defeated Randy Couture early in 2011, but was topped by Jackson and Mauricio “Shogun” Rua in 2010.
