Bellator 213 is right around the corner, and the marketing machine for the Hawaii card and Lyoto Machida’s promotional debut is revving up.

Machida signed with the organization earlier this year after he took out Vitor Belfort at UFC 224 in May. “The Dragon” has been booked for a pivotal bout with former 185 champ Rafael Carvalho at the December 15th event, which will go down in Honolulu, Hawaii.
