    I know that Machida will be the popular pick, but he was heavily favored against Phil Davis and that turned out to be a competitive fight. Dragon better show me something at 185 lbs.

    Default Lyoto Machida Drops to 185, Meets Tim Kennedy at UFC Fight for the Troops 3

    Lyoto Machida Drops to 185, Meets Tim Kennedy at UFC Fight for the Troops 3



    Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will make a long-discussed drop to middleweight, and his first test will be a military hero – on a military base.

    Machida (19-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) will meet Tim Kennedy (16-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) at the UFC's third "Fight for the Troops" show, expected to be UFC Fight Night 31. The show will take place Nov. 6 at Fort Campbell, a U.S. Army installation in Kentucky. The main card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1.

    UFC President Dana White announced the fight late Wednesday on "FOX Sports Live."

    Machida is coming off a controversial split-decision loss to Phil Davis at UFC 163 earlier this month. The loss dropped him to 3-3 since losing his 205-pound title to Mauricio Rua at UFC 113 more than three years ago. After losing the belt, Machida lost to Quinton Jackson, then beat Randy Couture to get another shot at the title – but was submitted by champ Jon Jones at UFC 140.

    Kennedy, a Bronze Star medal winner while in the Army, made his UFC debut in July at UFC 162 and won a unanimous decision against Roger Gracie. Before coming to the UFC in the merger with Strikeforce, he was 3-1 in that organization before losing a title fight against Luke Rockhold. He finished his tenure there with a 4-2 record.

    The UFC most recently did a troops show in January 2011 at Fort Hood, Texas. In December 2008, the first "Fight for the Troops" show took place in Fayetteville, N.C.

    It is a bad idea unless you like seeing Diaz chase down opponents while getting the shit kicked out of his legs. I imagine that fight would look like Shogun vs Machida 1.

    im not saying it wasnt a bad idea, but compared to this fight - its wayyyyyy better. At least Diaz would attempt to make Machida look the least bit exciting, Kennedy on the other hand wont touch Machida.

    Always been a big fan of Machida and his style and never really liked Kennedy.

    Well...that was my 2 cents...
