Lyoto Machida vs. Luke Rockhold In Talks For Later This Year

Two of the top middleweight fighters in the world are gearing up to face off with Lyoto Machida and Luck Rockhold both aiming for a fight later this year.

According to sources, preliminary talks are underway to matchup the former Strikeforce middleweight champion against Machida later this year. Further reports stated that Machida’s camp is 100-percent on board with the matchup as well.

Rockhold has been on a tear of late, winning his last two fights in a row with stoppage victories in both fights. Machida is looking to bounce back from his loss to middleweight champion Chris Weidman at UFC 175 earlier this summer.
