I'll be pulling hard for Mousasi here, I just really want to see him get his opportunity whether it be at MW or LHW it doesn't matter too much to me. But I would rather see him fight Jones then Weidman.
Unfortunately I dont think he has anything for either. Both would take him down and finish him within 1-2 rounds, WITH EASE.

...I'm going with Machida simply because his wrestling and submission game is on a much higher level than Mousasi's. Lyoto is more of a complete Mixed Martial Artist. Gegard's losses have been mostly by Submission and Wrestling has always been his achilles' heel. On the feet will be fascinating and entertaining to say the least. Either guy can finish the other standing. That's hard to predict. Machida has been brutally knocked out before. Gegard hasn't yet. It's very possible for Machida to be the first to KO Mousasi but I think his odds are much greater for the W if Lyoto if he utilizes his wresting and submission game...

I don't see Machida winning by KO... but this should be a very interesting fight. If anything, I think Mousasi catches him early or we see a razor thin split decision.

A LOT of people are sleeping on Gegard, I'm not sure why really.

This was one matchup I've been waiting for quite some time now. I just hope Machida doesn't come in like the Davis or Rampage fight...

For some reason my gut is telling me this is a Mousasi win.

I don't see Machida losing by KO ever again... anything is possible but it seems if he feels at all threatened in the stand up game... he'll play them like he did Hendo. If they aren't on his level.. they're going to Ryan Bader themselves.

I would agree that Machida wins this by being the more complete MMA fighter.

That is indeed very important. Don't let this love to dissipate under any circumstance, 'cause you'll need it to support each other when Lyoto get that big W.

The more I think about this fight, the more I can see Machida utilizing some trips for points.

Whatever happens, I hope we get to see Jacare vs. Mousasi 2 down the line. Interested to see how it would turn out now without the up kick. Both guys have improved since then.
