Fresh off his successful middleweight debut, Lyoto Machida has his next assignment.

This is truly a fight for the hardcore fans.

I won't go as far as picking Mousasi, but I think he will be a very live underdog here and will surprise A LOT of people here on the website. Mousasi with his take down D leaves a lot to be desired but as a striker I really beleive he is top notch. How many guys can go into a fight and outbox someone (even a possible scrub like Latif) on a torn ACL? I hope Gegard pulls it off but Machida might be to much. The only thing I know for sure is Gegard will have a lot more fans after this fight.

This is a great fight. Machida should take it. I can see the winner getting a crack at the MW title.

Machida's offense seems to be mostly neutralized by patient or technical strikers. Most of his impressive wins have come against fighters that were much lesser skilled as strikers or overly aggressive.

Considering I don't remember the last time Mousasi had anything resembling trouble against a striker I could easily see what some fans would consider to be an upset happening. Having said that, I'd say this is a coin toss.

Edit: Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that I am very excited about this match.

Gegard's biggest test to date.

Possibly Machida's last shot at a final title run.

DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUN
