Lyoto Machida takes on Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua in the main event of UFC 113 tonight

The light heavyweight bout sees Machida put his unbeaten record and UFC light heavyweight title on the line for a second time against Shogun after the two met in a controversial contest at UFC 104.

On that occasion, Machida was declared the winner via unanimous decision after five rounds, but many disputed the outcome, feeling that Shogun had put on more of a fight and landed more blows.

Machida is favourite to win their rematch, available at a best price 8/13 with Paddy Power at time of writing, with the Irish firm offering new customers a £50 free bet when opening an account.

Mauricio Rua can be backed at 13/8 with Betfred, who are also offering a £50 free bet for new customers.

Machida is keen to win the fight without the judges' help on this occasion and ahead of the fight said: "I will be ready to go all five rounds if that’s what it takes to retain my title."

"But my goal is to finish the fight before it comes to that. I don’t want to leave this fight in the judges’ hands - I’m ready for war."

Paddy Power offer 7/4 on the fight going to the judges again (2/5 for it not to) while Sky Bet (use bonus code MAXIMUMBONUS for a £10 free bet) go 5/2 on Machida winning on points and 7/1 on Shogun winning via the same method.

Machida has a 16-0 record going into the fight, recording wins by TKO, knockout and submission. He can be backed at 10/1 with Sky Bet to win by submission on Saturday night while on Betfair (free £25 bet), a Machida win via KO or TKO is 2.76 (7/4).

Rua can be backed at 18/1 to win by submission with Sportingbet (use bonus code MAXIMUMBONUS for a £10 free bet), while a KO/TKO win is currently available at 4.0 (3/1) on Betfair.
