Machida is in the midst of the worst losing streak of his career, as “The Dragon” has dropped three straight, getting stopped in every fight. As for Anders, he is currently undefeated (10-0, 2-0 UFC), which makes one wonder about that pairing of these two 185-pounders.
As you can see, the event will also feature a Bantamweight bout between John Dodson and Pedro Munhoz, as well as a women’s Flyweight bout between Valentina Schevchenko and Priscila Cachoeira.
