UFC Fight Night is to take place this weekend in Hollywood and it will be headlined by Lyoto Machida and Yoel Romero.

Lyoto Machida is back in the game after he suffered a loss to Luke Rockhold in April. He believes that the win against Romero could earn him a new title shot.

“That’s my goal – to rebuild, one fight at a time,” Machida told MMAjunkie on Thursday after a workout in Fort Lauderdale. “After this victory, I think I’m going to be in the mix again.”

A year ago Machida fought for the middleweight title, but he lost to Chris Weidman via unanimous decision. After that he defeated C. B. Dollaway and lost again, this time to Rockhold. Machida is now to fight excellent wrestler Yoel Romero (9-1) who scored five consecutive wins since he joined the UFC.
