UFC Light Heavyweight contender Daniel Cormier,, who trains at San Jose’s American Kickboxing Academy (A.K.A.), reported on this week’s edition of UFC Tonight on FOX Sports 1 that discussions are underway for his A.K.A. teammate Luke Rockhold to possibly fight Lyoto Machida in his next trip to the Octagon.
Machida is coming off of a loss to UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman in a fight that went to the judges after five hard-fought rounds back at UFC 175 in July. Meanwhile, Rockhold is coming off of an impressive outing against veteran contender Tim Boetsch at UFC 172 in April.
