The Dragon as he is known as Lyoto Machida is a renowned name in the UFC Championship but he does not continue to remain the same mysterious invidual as he was a few years ago when he won the lightweight championship for the first time. The experts had identified as the next big thing but he failed to come up to expectations in the past few months. The stiff challenge that is coming up for him in the near future is the match up against Luke Rockhold. Luke Rockhold has been having a stiff competition going on between him and Michael Bisping but it has been kept on bay by the UFC President Dana White. Going by the current standings of the player the fight between Lyoto Machida and Luke Rokchold seems to be apt. Both of these players will be raring to go against each other and the fans can be ensured of a great match up.
The different style of the fighters will also be something to watch out for. Both of them are poles apart in this regard. While Lyoto Machida prefers staying back and waits for his opponents to make mistakes, his counterpart is an aggressive persona on and off the field. The fans are looking forward to catch this match and each of them is looking forward to this opportunity to prove their worth in front of the crowd. The most intriguing part of the duel is going to be the strategy that each of them is going to follow. Machida had never been a fan favorite but his last match up where he put up a stiff challenge to his opponent despite trailing by three games to none proved to be a major positive point for the fighter. The crowd shouted for his success anticipating one of the best comebacks of UFC.
