In mixed martial arts, former UFC light-heavyweight champion Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida scored a unanimous decision over Gegard Mousasi in UFC Fight Night 36.

This is Machida’s second straight victory as a middleweight.
The “Dragon” was sharp during the opening round, tagging Mousasi with well-time kicks. Mousasi came back strong in the second round, but failed to sustain his pace.

In the fifth round, Machida came close to submitting the Armenian, but Mousasi survived and reached the final bell.

With the win, Machida has now earned a middleweight title shot against the winner of the bout between defending champion Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort. -- Mornings @ ANC, February 17, 2014.
