    it depends how deep you want to look at it.
    IMO Luke is the more ccomplished while Mousasi has been in the game (at high level) for longer.

    Both have good wins and bad losses.

    but Luke was the champ... Mou didn't get the belt...

    50% Of the names you listed for both these men are journeymen/bums
    Rockholds real resume:
    Weidman
    Jacare
    Bisping
    Machida
    Kennedy

    Mousasi real resume:
    Lombard
    Jacare
    Hunt
    Belfort
    Hendo
    Weidman

    Rockhold has a better resume. Beating the likes of Belfort and Hendo are meaningless in 2015

    I'd say Luke Rockhold, but Mousasi can say that he beat Mark Fucking Hunt and that is quite awesome.

    Mousasi been elite for 14 years and more than half his 44-46 wins are against legit opponents..

    End/ thread

    We'll revisit in a few years.

    Mousasi has ,arguably, best chin in sport.
    Rockholds already regressing at a decent rate

    Mousasi by miles.

    But the Shlemenko was a robbery.

    Mousasi has a better resume and would beat Rockhold 7/10 fights in my opinion.

    Rockhold because his resume contains a line that reads "UFC Champion".

    i guess mousasi just cause he's been around a lot longer and has more fights.


    rockhold is better and would beat him though.

    Especially if you count kickboxing and fighting out of his weight class.

    Yeah, Rockhold has been UFC and Strikeforce champ, and it can only get better from here. Mousasi on the other hand is just wasting his time in Bellator until one of their lesser fighters end up beating him.

    Compelling argument. I would say this, just because a guy didn't fight in the UFC doesn't make him a bum. Quite a number of these guys outside the UFC are preparing UFC fighters in training camp.

    That said, I feel like Gerard has just been around the globe and fought under way more conditions, including diff rules, timezones (which we don't think about enough), different reffing styles, etc.

    It's hard to discount just how much he has done. He's truly one of the legends of MMA. Luke was a nobody 10 years ago.

    Mousasi was also a Strikeforce champion.
