A number of fighters have made their predictions for this weekend’s UFC Fight Night 36 main event in Brazil between Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi, and it seems no-one is giving ‘The Dreamcatcher’ much of a chance against ‘The Dragon’.

Fighter Picks:

Machida: Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez, Jake Ellenberger, Beniel Dariush, Rafael Dos Anjos, Glover Teixeira.


Machida is understandably the betting favorite, but it’d be wrong to completely dismiss former Strikeforce and DREAM champion Mousasi’s chances of pulling off an upset here.

Like Machida, Mousasi is a high-level striker Who’s even found success competing in K-1 bouts in the past, and his only loss in the last eight years came when he was outwrestled by Muhammed ‘King Mo’ Lawal, so he’s more than capable of making this a very competitive fight.
