Machida vs. Mousasi Wiki Update Wiki

Another interesting and relevant eliminator matchup in the middleweight division between Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi. It's been difficult to gauge where Gegard Mousasi stands in the UFC in the middleweight division and this matchup should clarify some doubts. In his last seven fights, Gegard has six wins and one draw, though it's been said that his last real test from a top-ranked opponent came in 2010 against "King Mo" Lawal which he lost. 
Both UFC veteran Lyoto Machida (35) and journeyman Gegard Mousasi (28) are former champions in the [heavier] 205 lb. division and are extremely experienced in professional mixed martial arts. Both fighters have dropped to 185 lb. in hopes of chasing a title shot and staying relevant in the division.
