According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Machida is the clear favorite to win this fight, as he has been given odds of -700 to win, while Dollaway has a money line of +450 to win.

Machida is a former UFC Light Heavyweight champion and he is coming off a decision loss to middleweight champ, Chris Weidman, last July. He is 2-1 at 185 pounds. Dollaway has won two straight coming into this fight, but this is a big step up in competition. Dollaway is largely wrestling based and will look to get Machida to the ground. Machida is a karate-style fighter, who looks to use his counter-striking and quickness to knockout opponents. If Dollaway can keep Machida on the ground, he can win.
