If we can all put aside the shakeup with next weekend's UFC 170 co-main event, we might be able to instead focus on all of the raw potential in Saturday night's UFC Fight Night 36 fight card.

In a bid for a chance at the middleweight championship, perennial fan favorite Lyoto Machida will look to continue his success at a new weight class when he faces off against veteran Gegard Mousasi. With a combined record of 54-7-2, these two men bring the kind of skill and experience needed to deliver an explosive, technical main event. 

One step earlier in the evening, former Strikeforce middleweight champion Ronaldo Souza will look to continue his five-fight win streak against Francis Carmont. Will Jacare's world-class ground game be enough to hand the Canadian his first Octagon defeat?

Let's take a look at the entire fight card scheduled for Saturday night:
