Lyoto Machida earned himself a shot at wearing the UFC Light Heavyweight title again after stopping former TUF winner Ryan Bader in the second round of their 205lb bout Saturday night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Machida will now face the winner of UFC 151's main event between current Champion Jon Jones and challenger Dan Henderson.

Following Saturday's UFC on FOX 4, UFC President Dana White made it official and now “The Dragon” will wait to see who he will face.

Machida has faced Jones already, losing to him via submission in Toronto at UFC 140 in December 2011.
