The UFC definitely made the right decision by booking Machida-Mousasi (February 8). The fight not only pairs two exceptionally talented individuals against one another, but it also makes complete sense from a divisional perspective and the winner could easily emerge with a title-shot depending on how action unfolds.

They're two of the best in the business and fans are fortunate to see their eventual scuffle.
