Lyoto Machida may have shed light on the UFC's answer to Tuesday's injury withdrawals from the 153 card, after claiming a surprise is coming for MMA fans.
UFC 153 was rocked by injuries to Jose Aldo and Rampage Jackson on Tuesday, leaving the card without a main or co-main event. It remains to be seen if respective rivals Frankie Edgar and Glover Teixeira will be handed replacement bouts, or removed from the card to make way for two new fights.
Machida has stirred the rumour pot by posting an image of himself, sitting next to Wanderlei Silva, Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera and Mauricio Shogun Rua. The picture was accompanied by the words: "We are preparing a big surprise for you."

Wand at LHW....no thanks! Chael vs Wand....no thanks....Wand vs Glover.....not bad but no. Machida vs Chael is good, Wand is always great but against a dominant wrestler or against a bombardier like Glover is a recipe for disaster.

Wanderlei would get KO'd by Glover, and it wouldn't be pretty.

Great surprise Machida (sarcasm)

Wandy goes down in under 2 minutes if this happens. Glover is a very powerful dude and Wandy doesn't belong at LHW, especially these days. With that being said though, it's still a great idea compared to not seeing Teixeira at all.

I would like to see Teixeira vs Machida. Probably not gonna happen though.

Glover doesn't want to fight Machida and Machida doesn't like to fight on short notice apparently.

If Wand is in against anyone though, I'll be happy. I love to see the guy fight and he's never boring. Besides, I still believe he has a chance against anyone in the world with his speed, power, and aggression.

I wouldn't pick him against Sonnen or Texeira but it also would shock me if he beat either of those guys.

with it being in Brazil, he may alter his mindset for that
