Default Machida vs. Bader

Ryan Bader and Lyoto Machida attempt to get back in the title hunt when they square off at UFC on Fox 4 on Aug. 4 in Los Angeles.

The UFC confirmed the fight via its official Twitter account on Monday.

Bader (14-2) had been rocketing through the light heavyweight ranks after capturing top honors on The Ultimate Fighter’s season 8. He ran up a record of 12-0 before running into another rising star in now UFC champion Jon Jones; then was upset by Tito Ortiz at UFC 132.

Bader rebounded at UFC 139 with a win over Justin Brilz. He followed that up with a unanimous decision victory over Quinton “Rampage” Jackson earlier this year in Japan.

Machida (17-3) is still in the midst of the roughest patch of his career, however. Although he won and defended the UFC light heavyweight championship in 2009, things have since taken a nosedive.

“The Dragon” has lost three of his last four bouts, albeit to Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, Rampage, and Jon Jones, respectively. His lone victory during that stretch was a spectacular front kick knockout of UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture.

There has been no announcement of the UFC on Fox 4 main event, although Machida vs. Bader could be a candidate. Former Bellator middleweight champion Hector Lombard will make his Octagon debut against Brian Stann on the Aug. 4 fight card.

Awful match up for Bader don't think he is in the top tier of the 205 division. He wont be able to take Lyoto down and will probably get knocked out.

Fixed.
