It’s been over two years since Lyoto Machida’s fought, and at today’s media day for UFC Fight Night 119, “The Dragon” looked pretty, pretty eager to throw down.
Machida will take on fellow middleweight contender Derek Brunson at Saturday’s event, which will go down in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It will mark the first time the former light-heavyweight champ has fought since June, 2015, when Machida was KO’d by Yoel Romero.
Since then, Machida was hit with an 18 month suspension from USADA, for using the banned substance, 7-keto-dehydroepiandrosterone. The Brazilian star, who disclosed to USADA that he was using the substance, claimed he was unaware it was banned.
