    I think Mousasi might win a decision here. Like everyone has said, there is a good chance it may be a dull match and i see Mousasi being the one pressing the action and therefore winning a close decision. But hopefully we're all wrong and its fight of the year. I like the styles of both guys

    I'm not going to come out and say the equivalent of 'these two are too good to put on a good fight', but I'll look more for the subtleties of the fight game in this match. It's unlikely we'll see either knocked out, and Machida will do everything possible to stay out of the pocket with Mousasi. If it does start to get close and dirty, look for Machida to sweep the leg and hold position for a round.

    Even if everyone is being negative about this matchup, having these two in the middleweight division helps make things really exciting again. Anderson going away, new champ, new crop of very, very experienced contenders, and two years worth of solid, fresh fights. We could see Kennedy, Bisping, Machida, Jacare, Sonnen, Belfort, and Mousasi fight round robins constantly just for placing in the top five.

    Why is this the contender match? shouldn't it be Jacare vs Machida?

    Anderson Silva could be back in a year, and he’s still the No. 1-ranked (contender) in the world

    White: Lyoto Machida could be next in line with UFC Fight Night 36 win
    “The Vitor Belfort-Chris Weidman fight has to happen first,” White said. “But yes, if Machida wins, he could possibly be next in line for a title shot.”
    “The thing that makes this 185-pound division so interesting and so exciting right now is, obviously Chris Weidman looked unbelievable in his two fights against Anderson Silva and is the new champ,” White said. “But (look) who you’ve got waiting in the wings now. You’ve got Vitor Belfort next, you have (Ronaldo) ‘Jacare’ Souza, you have Lyoto Machida, and the list goes on and on of all these nasty, nasty guys at 185 pounds. And let’s not forget, Anderson Silva could be back in a year, and he’s still the No. 1-ranked (contender) in the world. So that division has never been more exciting.”

    I think that this fight ends in the first either by a solid counter from Machida or a serious rush flurry by Mousasi. I also think Chris can destroy either of them.
