CombatLifestyles.com photographer, Tracy Lee, was on the scene at the JW Marriott hotel in Los Angeles, Calif., earlier today (Aug. 2, 2012) to shoot the headlining fighters who will compete on the UFC on Fox 4: "Shogun vs. Vera" main card for the event's pre-fight press conference.
Naturally, the two men who will collide in the main event of the evening, Mauricio Rua and Brandon Vera, were on the scene to promote their potential Light Heavyweight number one contender eliminator match, which could possibly earn the winner a 205-pound title fight against the winner of Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson, who collide at UFC 151 early next month.
The two fighters who will co-headline the mixed martial arts (MMA) event -- Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader -- will also have a thing or three to say about that, considering that the winner of that showdown will also be considered for a world title fight of his own in the near future.
It's all about which winner is the most impressive.
But, before all that, all four fighters were in attendance at the UFC on Fox 4 pre-fight press conference to talk up the show prior to fight night (Aug. 4, 2012) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., this weekend.
