By on April 29, 2011

Lyoto Machida is keen to fight at UFC Rio, should he manage to beat Randy Couture at the UFC 129 event.

UFC Rio is set to take place on August 27 and a host of Brazilian stars such as Anderson Silva and Mauricio Shogun Rua are set for fights on the event.

“My desire [to fight on the card] is so great,” Machida told “Being able to fight here in a big event is part of my dream.

“I’ve fought in smaller events, but I’d like to fight in a big event in Brazil. I’m waiting for the opportunity, and I’ve heard from people who want to see me there.

“I’d like to show my appreciation in the Octagon and show a little of our fighting style to the entire public.”
