UFC Poster 173 Weidman Machida

Sometimes, the UFC’s graphics department comes up with absolute duds for event posters (Please see: “UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Mousasi“). Other times, you get masterpieces like the official billboard for “UFC 173: Weidman vs. Machida.”

The May 24 event takes place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Reigning middleweight champion Chris Weidman defends his throne against Lyoto Machida in the night’s featured attraction. Of course, you could just as easily replace Machida’s Brazilian-painted face with Vitor Belfort’s if it wasn’t for that whole TRT thing.

Although they’re not depicted in the above ad, heavyweights Junior dos Santos and Stiple Miocic serve as the co-main event.

Here is the show’s current lineup:

Li Jingliang vs. Danny Mitchell

Vinc Pichel vs. Anthony Njokuani

Jamie Varner vs. James Krause

Sam Sicilia vs. Doo Ho Choi

Tony Ferguson vs. Katsunori Kikuno

Piotr Hallman vs. Yves Edwards

Chris Holdsworth vs. Kyung Ho Kang

TJ Dillashaw vs. Takeya Mizugaki
