Posted on Sunday, October 11th, 2009 at 12:29PM by Aaron Kempton


In May, Lyoto Machida electrified the mixed martial arts world with a stirring knockout of Rashad Evans. On Saturday, October 24th, “The Dragon” will make the first defense of his UFC light heavyweight crown in the main event of UFC 104 against former PRIDE star Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, who is coming off back-to-back knockouts of Chuck Liddell and Mark Coleman.

UFC 104: Machida vs. Shogun – Saturday, October 24th, live on Pay-Per-View from Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.

In the co-feature, two of the top young heavyweight contenders in the sport will clash, as unbeaten Cain Velasquez takes on former IFL star “Big” Ben Rothwell in what promises to be one of the most memorable bouts of 2009.

Also on the main card:

Josh Neer (24-8-1) vs Gleison Tibau (17-7-0)
Spencer Fisher (23-4-0) vs Joe Stevenson (30-10-0)
Anthony Johnson (5-2-0) vs Yoshiyuki Yoshida (11-3-0)
