Is Tito Ortiz really going to fight Lyoto Machida?

In a recent interview with, former UFC light-heavyweight title contender, Renato Sobral stated that he believes a fight between former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and Lyoto Machida which was tentatively scheduled for a UFC event in May, may no longer be going ahead.

‘Babalu’ said the following:

PDG: Last time we talked you said that Lyoto Machida would be the UFC 205lb Champion someday. What do you think of his rumored upcoming match with Tito Ortiz?

Babalu: I heard that Tito is not going to fight him anymore, so they are going to have to find another opponent for Machida. I got the news a couple of days ago that he was fighting someone else.

Whether or not this is true remains to be seen  but if there are any updates we will be sure to bring them to you.
