UFC Announces Machida vs Mousasi in Brazil

pree release below from the official UFC.com website
The UFC has announced its first event in Brazil for 2014…
After smashing his way into the middleweight rankings via a first-round knockout of Mark Munoz at last weekend’s event in Manchester, former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida will now get a fight closer to home.

Machida’s next assignment comes in the form of a five-round main event against former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi, who’s currently ranked eighth in the light heavyweight division. The matchup is scheduled to take place February 8 in Jaragua do Sol, Brazil, in an event televised on FOX Sports 2.

Mousasi requested the matchup after last Saturday’s fight, saying that he wanted to move to middleweight — as Machida recently did — and try for a shot at title contention.
