Isn't Machida Asia's biggest star?
Machida is scheduled to fight Dan Henderson in February. The next Japan event will be a month after on March 3rd 2013.
I believe both these fighters should fight on the Japan show. Henderson fought many times in Japan, and Machida is partially Japanese
Machida's father is Japanese and taught him Shotokan Karate.
He also possesses judo, jujutsu, aikido and sumo techniques
He was likened to the videogame character Ryu from streetfighter
I believe Machida in Japan would be bigger then Cung Le in China (despite the perfect KO on Franklin). Machida is a former UFC champion, and I believe the best Asian fighter.
I believe Machida should fight on an Asian card,or at least on a Brazilian card. It's buffling why he hasn't fought in either
