Former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will look to get back on the winning track in late summer when he faces hard-hitting wrestler Ryan Bader at UFC on FOX 4. Machida started his career out with a 16-0 mark but has lost three of his last four fights while Bader has come out with his hand raised in two straight.

Their August 4 bout has been confirmed by UFC officials.

Despite his recent struggles, Machida’s 17-3 record is still impressive and includes wins over a number of stand-out scrappers such as Tito Ortiz, Randy Couture, and Mauricio Rua. The 33-year old’s last outing came in December when he was beaten by Jon Jones after starting the fight out strong.

Bader’s back-to-back wins came against Jason Brilz and most recently Quinton Jackson. He is 14-2 in his career with nine stoppages including six by way of TKO.
