UFC News: Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva at UFC 93 on January 31

There was a lot of speculation as to who Lyoto Machida’s next opponent would be.  Originally Machida was scheduled to fight Thiago Silva at UFC 89, but that fight was cancelled due to an injury to Silva.  It looks like that fight is back on and will take place on January 31 at what probably will be called UFC 93: Penn vs. St. Pierre II.

Tatame reports:

One of the most expected bouts of UFC 89, Lyoto Machida and Thiago Silva would face each other in October, in a fight that would force one of them to know how a loss tastes for the first time. After Thiago’s injury, that forced the disappointing cancellation of the bout. After many rumors, some secure sources informed TATAME.com that this fight will still happen, and it’s set to happen at UFC 93, in January 31st, in MGM Grand Arena, Las Vegas
