Lyoto Machida is doing everything he can to earn another crack at Jon Jones and his light heavyweight championship, even if he's unwilling to accept short notice bouts to receive that very honor. So he's doing it the hard way, working his way back up the ladder at the pace his employers at the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) decide.
That includes taking on wrestling powerhouse Phil Davis later on this evening (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013) in the co-main event slot of the UFC 163: "Aldo vs. Korean Zombie" pay-per-view (PPV) event at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Can "The Dragon" win and continue on his path back to the title? Or will "Mr. Wonderful" spoil those plans and carve a trail of his own?
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE round-by-round, blow-by-blow coverage of the entire UFC 163 card on fight night (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013), starting with the Facebook "Prelims," which are scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. ET, right on through the FX-televised under card bouts at 8 p.m. ET and then main card PPV action, which is slated to begin at 10 p.m. ET.
