First, a disclaimer: Lyoto Machida is 100 percent focused on his upcoming fight with Ryan Bader.
But should Machida be victorious, Machida's manager, Ed Soares, has an idea about the ex-champ's next step.
"If Lyoto wins and (Mauricio) 'Shogun' (Rua) wins, maybe make them the coaches of the next Brazilian 'TUF,' and have them fight the rubber match," Soares told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).
Ex-champs Machida and Rua fight alongside each other on the FOX-televised main card of UFC on FOX 4, which takes place Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Rua fights veteran Brandon Vera in the main event while Machida vs. Bader serves as the co-main.LINK
