ANOTHER ONE. UFC Veteran and former light heavyweight champion Lyoto "The Dragon" Machida has signed with Bellator MMA. After a 3 fight skid Machida rattled off back to back wins over Eryk Anders and Vitor Belfort. Great signing for Bellator and I believe it's a loss for the UFC. I can't wait to see how Bellator builds, they have the roster to gain some ground in the popularity race with the UFC now. I wonder who he might fight. Word is that he will debut in 2018. Maybe they throw him in with Ex champ Rafael Carvahlo? In my opinion, I think King Mo shouk d be the one to welcome him. He recently stated a desire to drop to 185 and this would be the perfect opponent.
Machida fought for the UFC over 11 years as a middleweight and light heavyweight, winning the 205 title from Rashad Evans and going 16-8 in that time.
