A long-rumored middleweight bout between Lyoto Machida and C.B. Dollaway was made official by UFC female bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey Wednesday.

Set for December 20 from Barueri, Sao Paulo, Brazil, UFC Fight Night 58 is expected to air on FOX Sports 1.

Machida (21-5) is coming off a decision loss to Chris Weidman for the UFC title, dropping his overall Octagon mark to 13-5.

Dollaway (15-5) sports an unbeaten record when competing outside the U.S., going 2-0 in Brazil and netting wins in Germany and Australia. He has won four of his last five, including a 39-second knockout of Cezar Ferreira.

So far, this is the only bout announced for the card.

    Why is Rousey announcing a middleweight bout?

  • hindsightufuk says:

    seems like an epic mismatch to me, CB has a chance to really make his mark in history in this fight if he can pull out an upset.
    I try not to dislike fighters ever, especially over petty things, but CB’s face makes me want him to lose. every single fight.

  • fanoftna33 says:

    CB has gotten much better since losing to Amir, in every respect but I just do not see how he gets a win here, his striking is not good enough and no wrestler has ever been good enough to hold Lyoto down. It will be interesting though to see if he lands a hail mary but other than that I expect Lyoto to get the W.

    When this fight was first announced I immediately thought, “I hope Machida lands that flying crane kick and knocks that stupid smirk of CB’s face.”
