UFC wants Belfort VS. Machida For The 9 Nov brazilian card!



Quote:
Duel between Brazilian is being internally considered and could be the main event of November 9, in Goiania. Weight needs to be discussed.

A spectacular fight between two of the biggest names in MMA in Brazil entered the UFC's plans in recent days and is being greatly entertained internally. The desire of the organization is to score Vitor Belfort vs. Lyoto Machida for the end of the year in Brazilian soil, as Combate.com found with sources close to the Ultimate. If confirmed, it is likely that the duel is the main attraction of the event that has already been agreed for November 9, in Goiânia Arena, the capital of Goiás The weight class - the middleweight (84kg), medium heavyweight (93kg) or a combined weight - yet to be discussed.

The report came in contact with both sides. The team Belfort said he has not been contacted about the possibility and chose not to comment for now. Lyoto said he had not been officially contacted. On the other hand, said that the Dragon is professional and assured that he would accept the fight against compatriot at any weight.
The initial idea of ​​Ultimate is that combat is the middleweight division. It would be the first time Machida, who has always been a heavyweight, 84kg in weight. He has said he intends to lower division in the future and was willing to move between the two weights for now. Victor, meanwhile, said recently it is waiting for the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva fight and only accepts before that if the category of medium-heavy or a combined weight.

The main objective of the UFC with the possible appointment of Vitor Belfort vs. Lyoto Machida is an event in Brazil again be absolute sales success of pay per view and especially for tickets. The organization was concerned with many tickets left over in "4 UFC Rio: Aldo x Korean Zombie" and the low sales for "UFC: Glover Teixeira x Ryan Bader," scheduled for September 4, at the gym Mineirinho in Belo Horizonte. Undoubtedly, a confrontation between two names and the size of Vitor Lyoto attract much attention from both the media and the public and would be a success in that sense.

Belfort by KO or a stupid split decision going either way.

Machida Vs. Belfort initially planned for Brazil

Combate.com claims that the fight, which would take place November 9th in Brazil would be Ultimate's attempt to get their events on Brazil to meet their public/money/PPV expectations (UFC 163 had a lot of tickets that haven't been sold and the demand for Glover X Bader is still low).

Apparentely Lyoto said that he is professional and that he would fight him with no problems. Vitor said he hasn't been officially contacted yet.

It's not clear yet if it would be on a catchweight or Middleweight.

What you guys think?

Cool fight. I imagine Lyoto would be able to evade Belfort and counterstrike him to a late stoppage or another decision.
