    I see lots of people whining about the Romero/Whittaker possibility saying that it should be Mousasi instead
    But Whittaker absolutely deserves it more.
    He's on a 7 fight win streak, and in it the fighters were all coming of impressives wins, Hall was coming off the Mousasi TKO, Brunson was in a crazy KO streak and I don't need to say a thing about Jacare

    Meanwhile Mousasi faces Hall, old Belfort and Weidman that were all coming of KO losses and is all sudden ahead of Bobby Knuckles?

    It really is. Way too many people are refusing to give Whittaker the credit he deserves and for no legitimate reason.

    Mousasi is known for running from hard matchups.

    He probably shit his pants and hid under the bed when dana texted him yoel.

    yeah, same way he hid from the Gus fight...
    you know the one at LHW, when Gus was coming off the JBJ fight, the one where Gus pulled out on late notice.

    STFU

    I know that Moose paid Gus under the table to pull out, to save face. Moose has that arabian oil money.

    I also think that, but still a great chance because the winner of the interim title will definitely embarrass Bisping

    I can see that you're new to MMA, and that's fine, but please do shut the fuck up about things you're clearly oblivious to.
    Mousasi doesn't run from anyone, as his record shows quite clearly.

    Which is fine but one shouldn't let it get in the way of objectivity, something that is happening too much with Whittaker and that's a damn shame given his performance against Jacare.

    Running might be too strong.

    he does stumble around in a half conscious haze til he gets the dogshit beaten out of him, though

    Mousasi has fought anybody and everybody for an extended period of time you lame arsehole. I'd put him ahead of Whittaker by a whisker but he certainly is no ducker.

    As a big Mousasi fan, I agree. Whittaker is the rightful #2 behind Yoel. Whittaker/Romero for interim title and Rockhold/Mousasi for #1 contender makes perfect sense.

    Bisping/GSP can have their little fantasy match this Fall while the real contenders fight it out.
