After fans showed distaste for the UFC's decision to award the winner of this Saturdays UFC on FOX 4 main event between Shogun Rua and Brandon Vera a title shot, UFC President Dana White has decided that the winner of the co main event between Lyoto Machida and Ryan Bader could also get a crack.

“Whoever wins the most impressively on Saturday night gets the shot at the title,” White told USA Today.

“I put together the fights that fans want to see,” White said. “The fans didn't like the Rua and Vera choice, so here it is: The guy that wins most impressively on Saturday night out of the co-main event and the main event will get the shot at the winner of Jon Jones vs. Dan Henderson.”
