The UFC announced earlier today that former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will be squaring off against Yoel Romero in the main event of TUF Brazil: 4 Finale on June 27th. This card, which was originally scheduled to take place in Brazil, will now be taking place in Miami, Florida.

Lyoto Machida is looking to get back into the win column after a shockingly one-sided loss to Luke Rockhold earlier this year. Rockhold bruised and battered Machida before eventually submitting him in the second round.

Yoel Romero, on the other hand, is looking to build his momentum following a win over Tim Kennedy back in September of 2014. This fight was marred by controversy and Romero will be looking to score a decisive win in June. Romero is 5-0 since signing with the UFC in 2013 and is looking to take a big step up in the Middleweight division with a win over Machida.


The card for TUF Brazil: 4 currently looks like this:

Lyoto Machida vs Yoel Romero
Erick Silva vs Rick Story
Lorenz Larkin vs Santiago Ponzinibbio
Thiago Santos vs Steve Bosse
Rani Yahya vs Masonori Kanehara

With Machida vs Romero in the main event and Silva vs Story in the co-main event, Miami is looking to get a very good card on June 27th.
