It's photoshopped. The lighting, however, has nothing to do with it. IIGQ4U explained it perfectly.

The distortion from someone shaking the camera while they took the picture is the same throughout the entire photo, including the image of Rashad. Looks real.

In regard to the photograph itself (Of Rashad), it does appear to be more vivid than Machida which leads me to believe that it was added as a layer over what was most likely a legitimate photograph.

I am saying that Machida holding a photo is real, however, the photo of Rashad is not.

The picture is being lit from the bottom right and yet his hand in the top right is casting a shadow on the picture. . Secondly look how poor the resolution of the picture is and then how crisp the edges on the pic he is holding are. Its not natural.

Honestly the ones for jokes on this page are more convinging.
