UFC 173 Weidman vs. Machida

Sports and MMA enthusiasts say, Lyoto Machida has got more tools to defeat reigning middleweight title holder Chris Weidman.

Perhaps the sudden change of Nevada's will towards TRT or testosterone replacement therapy in combat sports has something to do with the withdrawal of Belfort from the main event card of UFC 173.

According to Vitor, he willfully discontinued the use of TRT and will be fighting without it, hence given the short time he has to adjust for his next fight, he opted not to apply for a license to fight for his match with Weidman.

The UFC then tagged Lyoto Machida to replace Vitor Belfort. Machida is coming from a fresh win over Gegard Mousasi in UFC Fight Night 36, on February 15, 2014 at Arena Jaraguá, Jaraguá do Sul, Brazil.

So the card goes as UFC 173 Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida. This is exciting; Watch out for UFC 173 live stream online in your place or tune in here for the UFC 173 results, news and updates.
