UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs Mousasi - Picks & Prognostications

Machida is going to put the stamp on Mousasi. Mousasi couldn't put away his first softball opponent in the UFC (knee injury or whatever).
Machida looked faster and more dynamic in his brief debut against a tentative Munoz.
I think Mousasi will hang on for the duration of the fight but I think Machida will frustrate him and a bewildered Mousasi will look terrible.
Machida by unanimous decision.

Jacare by 1st round submission. All other predictions are silly.

Erick Silva is getting a softball here (but damn if he came out swinging for the fences in his last fight in Brazil and got clipped and shut down. It will be interesting to see how a kid who at first was all aboard the hype train recovers from such a devastating KO.
Silva by decision.
Oliveira because I don't trust TUF prospects.
Marecllo by TKO, round 2.
Damm by split decision.
Trinalde by KO round 2.
Reis by 3rd round submission.
