UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Dollaway viewing and schedule guide
Former UFC champion Lyoto Machida will look to re-insert his name into the title conversation when he faces Ultimate Fighter veteran CB Dollaway, looking to pick up the biggest win of his career when the two middleweights face off in the main event from Brazil this weekend.
Machida is returning to action for the first time since losing to champion Chris Weidman in July, but the long time UFC veteran had his moments during the five round battle and he would love the chance to do it all again. Beating Dollaway would be a big first step.
Also on the card, former bantamweight champion Renan Barao returns after a weight-cutting disaster cost him a rematch with TJ Dillashaw at UFC 177 earlier this year. Barao will take on upstart Canadian Mitch Gagnon as he looks to erase the memories from an otherwise forgettable 2014 campaign.
