With this loss to Romero, the two will likely switch positions. One has to think what is next for Machida, who is nearing the end of his career.

The 38-year-old “The Solider of God” improved to 10-1 in his career. In addition, he has five knock outs in six UFC fights in the middle weight class.

The 37-year-old Machida dropped to 22-7. Romero is on a six win streak, which only American Chris Weidman has the longest active streak at 9.

The fight was slow and many said that Machida won the first round. Then, in the second, Romero won the round, except he didn’t take down Machida.

He finally took him down in the third round, and that would lead to his knock out win.
