UFC Fight Night 36 Video: Highlights from the Machida-Mousasi Main-Event Bout

Dustin FilloySenior Writer IIIJune 16, 2016

Making the most of his nifty footwork, unorthodox kicks and top-flight endurance, Lyoto Machida swept the scorecards to best former Strikeforce champ Gegard Mousasi in the main event of UFC Fight Night 36.

Machida, the UFC's former light heavyweight champ who sports a 2-0 record in the promotion at middleweight, got outstruck in the bout, 66-35, including 36-28 in the significant strikes department.

Aside from a sweep in the fourth round, Machida managed to win the grappling exchanges with Mousasi, scoring on one of two takedown attempts and stuffing "The Dreamcatcher" on each of his three shots.

"The Dragon" forced Mousasi into his brand of fight from the get-go, and although he didn't overwhelm the 28-year-old Dutchman, he inflicted more damage and spent better parts of the fight in control.

Enjoy the video highlights above from the bout that garnered "Fight of the Night" honors from Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
