Lyoto Machida drops to the middleweight division for the first time in his UFC career, following a controversial split decision loss to Phil Davis at UFC 163. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak and ended the chance of a rematch with Jon Jones for light heavyweight title. Machida previously had back-to-back victories over Ryan Bader and Dan Henderson, before the loss to Davis.

Tim Kennedy made a successful UFC debut in July, dominating Roger Gracie from start to finish en route to a unanimous decision win at UFC 162. It’s his second win in a row, since a failed attempt at becoming Strikeforce’s middleweight champion, losing a hard-fought decision to Luke Rockhold.
