PostSubject: Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold set for UFC on FOX 15   Thu Jan 08, 2015 3:09 pm

The UFC’s return to New Jersey in April has its main event – an oft-rumored middleweight matchup between a pair of former champs.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion and recent middleweight title challenger Lyoto Machida (22-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC) will meet former Strikeforce middleweight champ Luke Rockhold (13-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) in the UFC on FOX 15 main event.

Rockhold today announced the five-round bout on his Instagram feed.

UFC on FOX 15 takes place April 18 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. The main card will air on FOX after prelims on FOX Sports 1 and UFC Fight Pass.

The event will be the UFC’s sixth at Prudential Center, though it will be the first visit to that venue on free TV. The five previous shows have been pay-per-views.

Machida got back in the win column in December when he stopped C.B. Dollaway with a “Performance of the Night” TKO in just 62 seconds in Brazil. Prior to that, following a light heavyweight loss to Phil Davis, he dropped to middleweight and won two straight fights to get a shot at champ Chris Weidman. But Weidman took a unanimous decision in the UFC 175 main event.

Awesome fight! I actually hate it because I like both guys a lot lol.

Right now I think Rockhold is the most complete guy in the division not named Weidman so im going with him.

Yeah Rockhold is pretty big. I remember thinking that at the weigh ins for him and Bisping and thought man why does Luke so much bigger than mike? hahaha
