The UFC has officially announced that Lyoto Machida will face Thiago Silva at UFC 89 in Birmingham, UK. With this addition, that card becomes pretty ridiculous for a Spike TV audience. I'd love to hear exactly who turned down matches with Machida before Silva signed on. I'll bet it was just about every top light heavyweight in the division, outside of Forrest Griffin who is sitting back awaiting the winner of Liddell/Evans.
