Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is coming back to "The Garden State" for its UFC on FOX 15 mixed martial arts (MMA) event inside the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, on Sat., April 18, 2015, headlined by a fantastic middleweight match up pitting Lyoto Machida opposite Luke Rockhold.

Naturally, those two gents graced the cover of the UFC on FOX 15 poster:

Rockhold (13-2) rebounded from a technical knockout loss to Vitor Belfort by reeling off three straight wins -- and finishes -- including last November's submission victory over Michael Bisping in Australia. Machida (22-5), meanwhile, returned to the win column by obliterating CB Dollaway, his first fight since a thrilling five-round loss to champion Chris Weidman back in July.

That's not all.

Also getting some poster love is the recently-announced middleweight showdown between Jacare Souza (21-3) and Yoel Romero (9-1). The winner of that beefy scrap could have a legitimate claim to the division title (if it ever gets defended), or at least an eliminator fight against the winner of Machida vs. Rockhold.

And let's not forget about the hot girls.
