Lyoto Machida Happens To Run Into His Next Opponent

Lyoto Machida Happens To Run Into His Next Opponent

Just days after the announcement that Lyoto Machida would step in for Vitor Belfort and face Chris Weidman for the middleweight title at UFC 173 in May, the two soon-to-be opponents ran into each other.

Both Machida and Weidman were in Ohio for the Arnold Classic, supporting some of their sponsors.

“Look who I saw at the Arnold’s,” Machida posted on Instagram. “My next opponent!”

The two will face each other this Memorial Day Weekend from Las Vegas.
