I thought the same thing, he seemed to hesitate to throw in that fight although I will say that Kyle seemed like he was trying to knock his he off with every punch and Kyle threw every time mousasi kept edging closer. I expected him to be a bit sluggish just because he hasn't fought in a while.

Difficult first UFC fight for Mousasi given Gustaffson's wins and size. Gustaffson is near the top of the contender list and Mousasi is unknown to the UFC fans. I thought a better match up would be shogun or Thiago silva. Both guys are aggressive and would test Mousasi on the feet and ground. Mousasi needs to get improve his cardio and takedown defense/ability to get back up in order to compete against the bigger guys.

please beg my indulgence for a second, my thread advising Mousasi of his best chance of beating Gustafason has been moved to the what if forum, I have no issue with that, its where most of my threads are, but for Mousasis sake he is a dutchman I believe so may have trouble finding his way round a computer to get to the what if forum so I am leaving this here for him, I know Mousasi religiously followings so he will read or has read this thread at some point, Mousasis this is for your info brotha, do you want to win or just leave Sweden with your head low, puffed up head thinking on what might have been.     Mousasi for his uFc debut goes to the heart of Stockholm to the Valhalla Arena, a place no living man has left undefeated at the hands of Gustafason. The only way to dereat a viking is to train with one, to learn his ways, to spill himself at the vikings hands. For Mousasis to win this bloody battle he must learn the ways of the viking, he must know their strengths, their weakenesses, what drives the bezerker rage that burns inside, Mousasi must conquor his demons, face his inner fears and release the beast that lurks inside his dark heart, he must be at one with Odin Loki & Thor, he must train with one . Brock Lesnar more mountain the man, will temper the steel, more bear than mountain he will challenge Mousasi through blood, through honor, through disipline and rage. Only with this love, battered and bruised that he may be can Mousasi overcome Gustafason, only through pain comes growth, dare he enter Brocks Lair, and come out renewed, born again, buring with the flame of Vikings old.
