Machida (22-8) recently returned from a lengthy drug-test suspension at UFC Fight Night 119, where he was promptly knocked out by division bruiser Derek Brunson. The 39 year-old “Dragon” has now been finished in three consecutive losses and may need this win in order to keep his spot on the roster.
As for Anders (10-0), he’s remained perfect in 10 trips to the cage. That includes last December’s unanimous decision win over Markus Perez at UFC Fight Night 123 in Fresno, where “Ya’ Boi” proceeded to call out Machida.
