Coming off a violent loss last winter via the standing guillotine of current light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, you can still make the argument that Machida remains the most dangerous striker in the 205 division. Arizona State University alum Ryan Bader finds himself only two months removed from the biggest victory of his young mixed martial arts career, looking to put himself right back into title contention this August in Los Angeles. "Darth" bullied his way to a unanimous decision victory over Quinton "Rampage" Jackson at UFC 144, cementing himself once again one of the top ten fighters in his weight class.
This fight joins the recently announced middleweight battle between Brian Stann and former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard on the main card of UFC on FOX 4. A lightweight affair between Joe Lauzon and Terry Etim will also be featured somewhere on upper portion of this card.
