A pair of bouts has been added to the UFC’s “UFC on Fox 4″ card. In a light heavyweight clash, former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will face the former Sun Devil standout Ryan Bader. The second bout pits two fighters coming off big UFC 145 victories as heavyweights Travis Browne and Ben Rothwell will go head to head.
The UFC announced both bouts earlier via UFC.com.
Lyoto Machida will be looking to right the course after falling to 1-3 in his last four, the most recent being to champion Jon Jones at UFC 140. The karate-based fighter will face off against former ASU wrestler Ryan Bader. Bader will be looking to extend his current two-fight win-streak to three coming off his dominant performance over another former champion, Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.
In a plus-sized match up, powerful heavyweights Ben Rothwell and Travis Browne will face off. Both are coming off respective wins over Brendan Schaub and Chad Griggs at UFC 145. Both fighters love to stand and trade and both are over 6’4″. While Browne will enjoy his usual height advantage, he will be giving up a 2″ reach advantage to the Duke Roufus product.
UFC on Fox 4 takes place August 4 live from Los Angeles, Californina.
