Bellator’s August 26th event is going to feature one of the most famous surnames in all of MMA, as the older brother of Lyoto Machida, Chinzo, will reportedly fight at the event.
Recently MMA Fighting.com reported that the 39 year-old Chinzo Machida will take on Mario Navarro at Bellator 160, which will go down Anaheim.
Machida (3-2), who fights at 145, hasn’t fought since 2014 when he decisioned Dima Gerasimov at RFA 15.
Navarro (4-4) is coming off a submission loss to Brandon Bender at Bellator 116 in 2014.
So, it will be interesting to see if Machida can score some big wins under the Bellator banner. Bellator 160 will be headlined by a compelling, lightweight fight between Benson Henderson and Patricio “Pitbull”.
