After UFC 153 completely fell apart yesterday, everyone and their dog has been talked about to fill the gaping holes in the card. One of the most talked-about guys was Lyoto Machida, since he doesn't actually have a scheduled fight at the moment. Machida added to the speculation by tweeting something that has got some people buzzing:

And Big Nog told Sherdog he's ready to go, even though he said that last time (he was supposed to fight Cheick Kongo in July at UFC 149):

"My recovery is 100 percent. My physical therapist, we worked a lot, sometimes six, seven hours a day. I tried getting better for July but I got hurt again. I think it was too soon. I broke my bone in December and I started to train again at the end of March. I think it was too soon. Now, it's totally recovered and I started to train again in mid-July. I feel my arm is getting stronger, getting faster. I feel all my skills are getting better and I'm ready to go. I'm training every day, doing my strength and conditioning, little by little and I hope to fight soon. I'm just waiting on confirmation from the UFC."

So that's 3 major Brazilian stars hinting that they're ready to go. I wonder what we end up getting from this clusterfuck that we call UFC 153.

I KNOW WHAT THE SURPRISE IS!!!!

Macheetah will FINALLY change his walkout song to something that is actually audible to the human ears.

He's re-invented himself into an aggressive, strike-first-ask-questions-later fighter.

Lyoto is the best choice if he's ready.

Seriously! They can't all be friends....can they? Maybe he fights Sonnen who just moved up to LHW, Glover was another badass suggestion. There is plenty to do with him, he could also drop to MW.

he is moving down to middleweight to have a tag team match with Anderson Silva and they will be fighting 'The Wraslers' Chael Sonnen and Chris Weidman!
