A key middleweight bout between Lyoto Machida (21-5 MMA, 13-5 UFC) and C.B. Dollaway (15-5 MMA, 9-5 UFC) will take place at December’s ‘UFC Fight Night 58’ in Brazil.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, was last seen in action at July’s UFC 175 event in Las Vegas, where he suffered a hard-fought unanimous decision loss to current middleweight champion Chris Weidman. Prior to the setback, “The Dragon” was coming off back-to-back wins which he earned over Mark Munoz and Gegard Mousasi.
Meanwhile, C.B. Dollaway has won 4 of his last 5 octagon appearances, his latest being a decision win over Francis Carmont which earned him a “Performance of the night” bonus. The former TUF Season 7 runner-up will undoubtedly be facing his toughest opponent to date when he squares off with Machida in Brazil.
UFC Fight Night 58 takes place December 20 live from Jose Correa Arena in Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil. The card is expected to air in the US on FOX Sports 1.
