Head 2 Head: Machida vs. Munoz

Published Oct. 24, 2013 1:00 a.m. EDT

After a career spent confusing and often knocking out larger light-heavyweights, Lyoto Machida heads down to the weight class where many figure he’s always belonged. Now a middleweight, he takes on Mark Munoz in the main event of Saturday night’s UFC Fight Night event from Manchester, England. After years of seeming unbeatable, he’s just 3-4 in his last seven, and at 35, it’s time for a reinvention. With the middleweight division’s recent turnover, Machida gets a clean slate and the ability to make an immediate impact. Standing in the way is Munoz, who looked reinvigorated his last time out.
