On October 24, 2009, unbeaten UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida and challenger Mauricio “Shogun” Rua engaged in a five round war that divided the mixed martial arts world when the unanimous decision verdict was rendered in Machida’s favor. But now, these 205-pound superstars will settle the score once and for all in the main event of UFC 113, and both fighters are vowing to take matters out of the judges’ hands and into their own.
A mêlée between two former cast mates of The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights. Kimbo Slice is the infamous street fighter turned mixed martial artist. Matt Mitrione is a former NFL player looking for a new level of competition.
Their first fight ended in a controversial decision, but Lyoto Machida and Mauricio Rua are back to give the fans the rematch they have been waiting for. Both men have vowed to leave the judges out of the equation, so we expect to see a brilliant finish.
Hard-hitting New England boxer, Marcus Davis is paired against Canadian, Jonathan Goulet in this welterweight matchup. The cards are not in Goulet’s favor as the precision punching and sprawls of Davis will be effective against his takedowns.
