MMA Vivisection: UFC Fight Night 36 - Machida vs. Mousasi full-card predictions and analysis

A detailed rundown of each scrap on Saturday's UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Mousasi fight card from Nate, Dallas and Zane, who offer occasionally insightful analysis and predictions on the match ups.

In this week's iteration of the MMA Vivisection, Kid Nate, Dallas Winston and Zane Simon put the entire UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs. Mousasi lineup under the microscope to lend analysis and predictions for each bout. The show takes place in Catarina, Brazil, with striking specialists Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi in the main-event spotlight. Standout submissionist Ronaldo Souza looks to sustain his recent momentum against a deceivingly precarious opponent in Francis Carmont in the co-main fracas.

Sith Nate keeps the crew on topic with ruthless determination in this go-around, though no mortal presence could entirely preclude the smattering of verbal blunders that have come to define the show.
