01:42 PM ET 08.22 | There have been rumors about former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida making the move to middleweight for quite some time and now "The Dragon" will finally officially be moving down to 185 pounds. UFC president Dana White made the announcement during Tuesday night's edition of FOX Sports Live on FOX Sports 1. Machida will be taking on two-time Strikeforce middleweight title challenger Tim Kennedy, who successfully made his UFC debut over Roger Gracie at UFC 162 in early July, at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 on Nov. 6 on Fox Sports 1 which will be held at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Kennedy is a U.S. Army Ranger, so he is an obvious choice to be a member of the UFC Fight for the Troops 3 card.
