With the highly anticipated event only one week away, fans are anxious to find out which fighters have made the UFC 104 fight card. You will find all of the matchups listed here.
With every passing day fight fans are becoming more and more excited about the treat that is in store for us next Saturday.
Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua
This light heavyweight bout should be one for the books! Expect nothing short of astonishment as two of the UFC’s most electrifying fighters go head to head. Machida, aka, “The Dragon” is coming off of a lopsided win over his last opponent/victim and one of this seasons coaches on the Spike TV show “The Ultimate Fighter,” Rashad Evans. And now that I think about it, he’s actually coming off of 13 spectacular wins with no losses. In the opposite corner we have shogun, who has won his last two matches. However, he’s also suffered from major knee problems in the past. I expect, as long as Shogun’s legs hold up, to see at least one or two rounds pass before Machida knocks him out.
