Lyoto utilized his trademark footwork, counter-punching and kicks to control the action. In an attempt to get on the inside Bader rushed in as he threw a right at Machida. However, Machida stood his ground and blasted Bader...

Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (pictured) will fight Brandon Vera this weekend.
Saturday’s card isn’t the UFC’s most prolific. In fact, it’s pretty darn uninteresting.
