Earlier this week, we mentioned that in light of Thiago Silva's recent back injury, the UFC offered light heavyweight contender, Lyoto Machida, a new fight against an Octagon newcomer.

MMARated.com spoke to Machida's manager, Ed Soares, today and found out that his camp turned down that proposed fight.
