Interesting, just read that he's fighting Mike Kyle at the final Strikeforce in January. Can't wait to see him in the UFC

Was unaware of that. I'd rather see him in the UFC at 185 though. But I'm sure he could use the fight to stay active and improve. Phone Post

He's said multiple times there is no way for him to make 185 anymore.

can he still make 185? scrap all the Anderson superfights and give this man an instant title shot, and I could care less if he's earned it.

Been waiting along time for this guy to return, can't wait to see him in the UFC. A Shogun fight will be perfect to show off what he's capable of.

This guy is a legitimate threat Jones but I think he's got an even better chance at taking out Anderson. Hope he drops down to MW eventually.

Hard to believe he just turned 27 in Sept and has already had so many fights.. I think if you count his kickboxing/boxing fights, he has nearly 60.. just unreal.

Let him retire Franklin. Then he beats Shogun or Gus. Only people in the division he struggles against are Rashad, Phil, Bader, and Jones. Phone Post

Neil McCauley - gegard is like nick diaz, too dangerous on the feet, too dangerous off his back, one of the best pound for pound fighters on the planet and will only lose via crooked top "control" judge decisions.

Except when guys like Jones or Shogun take him down and pound his head in.

has anyone ever damaged mousasi on the feet or on the ground before? Didnt shogun just have a life and death battle with brandon vera? I would favor jones over mousasi, but i wouldnt be confident in anyone else beating him (im not talking winning decision while getting beat up ala king mo either).

Jones, Rashad, Machida, Shogun, Davis, Little Nog, Gustafsson, and Glover would and should all be favorites over Mousasi.

Mousasi ko's these guys, submits them, or takes no damage while beating them up to a decision loss.

I think mousasi is a better grappler. But that's just an opinion. I think shogun had underrated wrestling. We saw it against his last few opponents. Phone Post

If he were to fight Shogun and absolutely destroys him, which I would expect him to do, he would more than likely be the favorite in all of those matches except Jones.

Brandon Vera actually has takedown defense.

Who has taken Mousasi down who has any kind of GnP? Shogun knocks guys out on the ground and Jones breaks their faces or submits them, Mousasi has never had to deal with that kind of thing.

Mousasi's awesome but at least up to this point, he has shown some big holes in his game imo.

By the way I wouldn't mind seeing Mousasi against Vera. Although I hope they throw him in with the best right away.

brandon vera was outwrestled by jardine in their fight, yet jardine struggled to take mousasi down, couldnt keep him down and got beat up for trying.

King mo certainly has some GNP. He just put a savage rape choke gnp clinic on lorenz larkin.
