As a huge Mousasi fan who really wants him to win the smart pick has to be Machida
Machida has been fighting elite guys for a while. Mousasi is obviously skilled but Machida is the biggest fight of his career. Mousasi is just another fight for Machida.
Machida is in killer shape and Mousasi is coming off his ACL injury.
The fight is in Brazil. Mousasi has never even fought in the country.
Machida has been at MW one time and it seems he has the cut pretty well. This is Mousasi's first time cutting down to MW in four years.
Some of these are more important than others but they're all factors at least a little.
