Mark Munoz and Gegard Mousasi have a lot of things in common.

Right now, though, the one that sticks out is that they're both coming off momentum-halting losses to Lyoto Machida.

And both could really use a win when they step into the octagon against one another on Saturday at UFC Fight Night: Berlin -- the first of the day's two fight cards.

For Munoz, ranked No. 7 in the UFC's middleweight division, a win would likely catapult him into the top 5 and earn him a big-name fight with another title contender. Win that, and who knows? A shot at Chris Weidman and the UFC crown might be next.

"I don't want to be known as a gatekeeper, nobody does," Munoz told FOXSports this week. "You want to be known as the best in your weight class, in the division, so I understand that. Gegard and I are both high up there on that list and with a win over Gegard it's definitely going to stamp my place to put my name in the hat as a No. 1 contender."
