Machida vs. Rockhold Headlines FOX show in NJ

 
With a combined six post-fight bonuses in their last seven fights, middleweight contenders Lyoto Machida and Luke Rockhold are sure to deliver a fight to remember on April 18 in Newark, New Jersey. But with both sitting in the top five at 185 pounds, the UFC on FOX main event at Prudential Center could also determine the next contender for the title.

Holding a 3-1 record since moving to middleweight in 2013, former UFC light heavyweight champion Machida has earned post-fight bonuses in each fight as the number three-ranked Brazilian knocked out Mark Munoz and CB Dollaway, decisioned Gegard Mousasi, and engaged in a 2014 Fight of the Year candidate with champion Chris Weidman.

In search of his first UFC title shot, former Strikeforce middleweight king Rockhold went on a tear in 2014, knocking out Costas Philippou and submitting Tim Boetsch and Michael Bisping to earn his spot at number five.
