Yesterday, we showed you what happens when former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) light heavyweight champion, Lyoto Machida, gets dialed in when throwing hands (and feet) inside the Octagon.

Click here if you missed “The Dragon” roar.

Now it’s time to show you what he’s up against in the former of middleweight menace Eryk Anders, who is not only defeated at 10-0 with seven finishes, but also the owner of a first-round knockout win over longtime veteran Rafael Natal.

Witness the violence in the embedded video above.

Stopping the Brazilian was part of torrid four-fight run in 2017, split between UFC and the regional promotion Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA). This upcoming bout clearly marks his toughest test to date.

Machida and Anders collide in the UFC Fight Night 125 middleweight main event, which takes place this Sat. (Feb. 3, 2018) inside Mangueirinho Gymnasium in Belem, Brazil, live on FOX Sports 1.
