New Pics of Machida training at Blackhouse sporting a Goatee.

He looks in phenomenal shape, I still think too many people are counting Bader out but Machida looks great, think we'll see the best Machida in years, he's got rid of the bulk from the Jones fight and looks like he's going back to focusing on speed and agility.

He definitely looks very lean, which is definitely a good thing for a Machida-running-circles-around-opponents fan like me.

The facial hair needs to go, but looks like he will finally have to do a decent weight cut for once.

The fu man chu is OG. It's like a symbolism that he's older and wiser now.

He's cut up now...gonna run circles around Bader and land that knee into the liver with a nice left cross! *POW* *BAM!!!* Batman style!

Can't wait to see him back in action.

Really hoping he gets a win in impressive fashion. Easily my favorite LHW and one of my favorite fighters period.

I don't dislike Bader, but I really like Machida's persona and fighting style. I hope he can follow through with the favourite tag in this one as he's currently a -310 betting fave. I don't think it's that far apart, but still expect a Machida uni dec.
