It’s fight night tonight from Hollywood, Florida — as the Ultimate Fighting Championship brings a pivotal middleweight bout to the Sunshine State!
Former light heavyweight champion and recent middleweight title challenger Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida will look to bounce back from a devastating TKO loss to Luke Rockhold tonight — as he faces rising star Yoel Romero, who has won five straight bouts in the 185 lb. division.
It’s Machida’s karate-based MMA style against (arguably) the man with the best wrestling credentials in the UFC.
Unfortunately the rest of the event doesn’t have the same luster — but then, maybe the show will surprise; as in the case of the UFC Fight Night event in Brazil earlier this month. (Like the Brazil show, tonight’s bouts will also be held in the UFC’s smaller cage.)
We’ll have the action here. Just hit refresh often for the latest update.
We’ll also provide play-by-play for the rest of the main card, starting at 7 pm PT, 10 pm PT!
