On Saturday 15 former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Lyoto Machida faces former Strike Force Champion Gegard Mousasi. Many may not know this but this is not a easy fight for Machida who coming off a win over Mark Munoz with a left high kick in the first round. And who ever has not seen Mousasi fight he is a very talented fighter that can match or even beat any top contenders. It will be a very interesting fight but in the end I think Machida will end up getting his hand raise in a very tactical and closely contested fight.
