UFC Fight Night 30: Lyoto Machida vs. Mark Munoz Full Head-to-Toe Breakdown
Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will look to build his legacy in a new division at UFC Fight Night 30 on Saturday, where he'll make his 185-pound debut opposite Mark Munoz.

Machida was still one of the top fighters in the world at 205 pounds, but a controversial loss to Phil Davis at UFC 163 prompted the Brazilian to look for a quicker path to his next title shot. He believes he'll have to do less at middleweight than he would at light heavyweight to fight for another UFC championship.

Having only lost to champion Chris Weidman over the past three years, Munoz will be a good test to see where Machida stands in the 185-pound class. Also a former light heavyweight, Munoz is a Top Five middleweight right now, so a win over him would immediately place Machida in the running for a title shot.

What are Machida's chances of picking up an important win in his first appearance as a UFC middleweight?

Here is a look at how "The Dragon" matches up with Munoz in all areas.
