Gegard Mousasi would drop to 185 to fight Anderson Silva

source: mmaweeklyvideos

(3:42 mark) "What I hear about other fighters, how much they cut weight, it could be done. But only if it's really an important fight I would consider (it), but otherwise I wouldn't do it. Let's say if they would give me Anderson Silva, I would do it, but I don't think that's going to happen, so it doesn't make any sense to go down to 185."

Ando outwrestled Marquardt right before he finished him with GNP. Mousasi gets taken down at will. Not that he would or needs to get the fight to the ground, but I feel he is far better there. He would crush OSP or Mousasi from Saturday night.

i like Mousasi but i dont think he has anything that could pose a serious threat to Anderson..ANderson is a much better striker, faster, better chin, more power..his grappling is right there with Mousasis eventhough id give the edge in wrestling to Gegard..beyond that though what could Mousasi do to beat Anderson?

I think Mo jumps around inbetween fights but AKA is his main place to go now for his fight camps, he was talking them up pretty good last fight and him and Cormier are tight

I forgot about Rockhold. Is Lawal a permanent member? I thought he trained in a bunch of different gyms

They have King Mo at 205 and Luke Rockhold the 185 champSounds like he is going to Hendo's and Gokor's gyms next

Mousasi seriously needs to switch to a US camp. AKA has no big contenders at 185/205. Would love to see him join them

what fights show you Anderson would out wrestle Mousasi? Mousasi has a solid judo game, has taken down many guys when he wants to, only issue is he rarley defends takedowns but he has worked on that his last couple fightsBetter chin? Anderson has an amazing chin, but Mousasi still has never been dropped, MMA or K-1 fights, nothing shows one has a better chin than the other

Ando could win via wrestling to GNP or sub in the first. He also has more speed/power standing and a better chin so whatever technique edge you think Mousasi has,it isn't enough to matter since he still cant trade with him before getting KOd himself. I even left out the massive disparity in conditioning.

Fixed that for you... Silva and Moustasi shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence...

Goodness. Mousasi has serious potential, but based on his last few performances, he'd get fucking killed by Anderson.
