The UFC has announced its first fight for Fight Night: 58, taking place in Barueri, Brazil on December 20th. It will be middleweights Lyoto Machida vs. CB Dollaway.
The former light heavyweight champion and recent challenger to Chris Weidman’s middleweight champion, Lyoto Machida makes his first appearance in the Octagon since failing in his bid to win the 185lb title. This will be Machida’s 4thfight with the UFC since dropping down to fight among the middleweight ranks.
TUF: Jackson vs. Griffin finalist (losing to Amir Sadollah) is riding a 2 fight win streak, a decision victory over Francis Carmont in May, and a KO win over Cezar Ferreira in March, has him riding high going into this tilt. Despite the win streak one could assume he will be the betting underdog in this fight.
As more develops on this event we will keep you posted
