In a report coming out of sherdog.com, Jordan Breen, the host of “The Jordan Breen Radio Show” is reporting on scene from Toronto that UFC 140 main event participant, Lyoto Machida is ill.

In fact, he is reporting that the former UFC light-heavyweight champion is very ill leading into his championship title to fight against Jon Jones.

No word on if this report is valid, but BJPENN.COM will reach out to the Brazilians camp as soon as possible to get to the bottom of this rumor and will update with what we find.

If true, the highly anticipated main event is going to be skewed with a possible less than 100% title challenger and no one wants that.

Here is a screen cap of Breen’s quote from his pre-fight chat on sherdog.com:
