Just days after the announcement that Lyoto Machida would step in for Vitor Belfort and face Chris Weidman for the middleweight title at UFC 173 in May, the two soon-to-be opponents ran into each other.

Both Machida and Weidman were in Ohio for the Arnold Classic, supporting some of their sponsors.

“Look who I saw at the Arnold’s,” Machida posted on Instagram. “My next opponent!”

The two will face each other this Memorial Day Weekend from Las Vegas.

No

No Fuck No. Give Vitor TRT he’ll lay out WIDY

no

not really if i wanted to see someone run id watch soccer

Vitor was more interesting

OLD MAN STRENGTH!

I think Machida has a better shot at beating Weidman than Belfort did so yes I am.

Hey, GREAT story fellas. Keep up with the updates… smh

Machida has a better shoot at beating Weidman.

^^^ Agreed

Ya, vitor is a cheating lil bitch… no trt no balls….

If I had a penny for everyone that said they are more amped for Machida/Weidman than Belfort/Weidman…….I would have like 1 penny. And that is including Lyoto’s opinion.

We wanted to see jacare

No

No why would we want to see a guy circle left and run rather than a guy that comes straight forward throwing bombs

Yes, Belfort is on the juice, half natty.

And they made out

It’s going to be boring fight!!!

Machida isn’t aggressive enough. Vitor posed a real threat

Vitor Belfort can take Weidman id be more pumped to see Machida vs Belfort

Belford earned that title shot
