UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs Mousasi Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

The UFC returns to Brazil for UFC Fight Night 36. The featured bout on the card will pit Lyoto ‘The Dragon’ Machida head to head with dangerous striker Gegard Mousasi. Lyoto Machida, the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, made a successful 185 pound debut, defeating fellow top ranked fighter Mark Munoz via first round head kick knockout. With the win ‘The Dragon’ immediately thrust himself into the title contention conversation.

Gegard Mousasi will be returning to the Middleweight ranks for the first time since capturing the Dream 185 pound title in 2008. Mousasi has been out of action for nearly 10 months after making his promotional debut. The former Strikeforce Light Heavyweight champion won a lopsided, yet unimpressive first fight under the UFC banner. Mousasi will enter this contest as  a sizeable underdog against Machida, but a victory will undeniably stake his claim to a spot in the top of the already stacked Middleweight division.
