Mousasi hoping to make Machida pay for mistakes


Lyoto Machida will certainly be Gegard Mousasi's stiffest test since making his UFC debut, but the same can be said of Machida for his second fight at middleweight. Mousasi is confident and believes he will capitalize on any mistake Machida makes in the fight:

"He's not the biggest [challenge of my career]. I've had many fights, against dangerous strikers, heavier opponents. I fought K-1, different divisions. It's one of the most important fights for me. I look forward to the fight. He has his gaps. Stand-up, he makes mistakes. I think it's gonna be that fight that whoever makes a mistake is gonna pay for it. I can get a title shot after this fight, maybe. I like Lyoto, he's a good guy. But we're gonna fight and see who is the better fighter."

To be fair, I think it is only Armenians with -ian at the end of their names that are high strung

Gegard is a walking contradiction. Armenian's are not that chill.
