The Ultimate Fighting Championship is going to be without the services of two of its champions for the next few events, but when middleweight champ Anderson Silva and light heavyweight titleholder Lyoto Machida do run return, expect them to be even better versions of the athletes they already are.

Both were due for a little maintenance after several years of fighting and headed into the shop for a tune-up after their most recent bouts. Silva had surgery on his elbow early in October, while Machida had a cleanout performed on his hand this past Friday.

Neither was suffering from a major injury, merely the normal wear and tear that occurs over a combined 45 bouts.
