Just days after the announcement that Lyoto Machida would step in for Vitor Belfort and face Chris Weidman for the middleweight title at UFC 173 in May, the two soon-to-be opponents ran into each other.
Both Machida and Weidman were in Ohio for the Arnold Classic, supporting some of their sponsors.
“Look who I saw at the Arnold’s,” Machida posted on Instagram. “My next opponent!”
The two will face each other this Memorial Day Weekend from Las Vegas.
