The main event of Saturday’s card in Brazil features Lyoto Machida (21-5) taking on C.B. Dollaway (15-5) in a clash at 185 pounds. The fight is taking place on Saturday night at 10PM ET on Fox Sports 1,

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.
