Lyoto Machida beat Mauricio “Shogun” Rua at Staples Center again Saturday. Even though the former Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight champion didn't fight each other, Machida's second-round knockout of Ryan Bader was deemed more impressive than Rua's fourth-round technical knockout of Brandon Vera in the main event. That decision, announced by UFC President Dana White on the Fox telecast, gives Machida the title shot at the winner of the Sept. 1 light-heavyweight title fight between champion Jon  Jones and Dan Henderson in Las Vegas.

Following his most difficult fight yet, Ultimate Fighting Championship light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones will return to defend his belt March 15 in Dallas against Glover Teixeira. It will be the seventh title defense for the 26-year-old Jones (19-1). Brazilian Teixeira, 34, has won all five of his UFC fights, including a January unanimous decision over former light-heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and four other submissions or knockouts. Teixeira most recently knocked out wrestler Ryan Bader in the first round in September.

The last time Mauricio “Shogun” Rua fought at Staples Center, he was -- for lack of a better word -- robbed. Despite hammering then-light-heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida with leg kicks and being more active, Rua suffered a dubious unanimous-decision loss that so outraged Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White that an immediate rematch was ordered. Rua won that by first-round knockout. Saturday, Rua (20-6) returns as the favorite to regain another title shot when he fights San Diego's Brandon Vera (12-5)

On a November 2006 evening in Sacramento, two young fighters shared in victory inside the Ultimate Fighting Championship octagon. One was Georges St-Pierre, the now veteran welterweight champion who used his breakthrough win over Matt Hughes as a career-defining springboard to become the face of the UFC.

Tito Ortiz was talking a few hours after Hall of Fame-bound running back LaDainian Tomlinson announced his retirement. Tomlinson called it quits Monday by signing a ceremonial one-day contract with the San Diego Chargers and leaving the game for good. Ortiz is planning to leave the mixed martial arts stage as well, but he'll do so not in a bow tie like Tomlinson, but after a third slugfest with his rival Forrest Griffin July 7 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. “This is my chance to end up on top,” Ortiz, 37, said in a telephone interview from his Big Bear training compound.
