UFC 224: Watch Lyoto Machida melt Mark Munoz in ‘KO of the Week’ (Video)

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is bringing us a middleweight showdown between former light heavyweight champions, as Lyoto Machida will face off against fellow countryman Vitor Belfort at the UFC 224 pay-per-view (PPV) event on Sat., May 12, 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

See the entire fight card and line up here.

While the soon to be 40 year-old Machida (23-8) has been struggling to stay consistent in recent years, there was a time when he remained one of the most feared strikers in any weight class, evidenced by his Manchester massacre over Mark Munoz in late 2013, featured in the promotion’s “KO of the Week” embedded above.

Nasty stuff.

Topping the UFC 224 fight card is the women’s bantamweight title fight pitting reigning 135-pound queenpin Amanda Nunes opposite top division contender Raquel Pennington. In the middleweight co-main event, hometown hero Ronaldo Souza will look to quell the uprising of welterweight import Kelvin Gastelum.
