    Mousasi is the only one still in his prime who also has a proven track record at LHW. I think he could give DC problems.

    He beats all of them.

    For some reason I think Uriah Hall is the most likely to beat him though because he's spontaneous and creative like Jon Jones and Anderson Silva.

    he might just do a spinning liver kick to DC out of nowhere which happens to be his cryptonite (body kicks)

    I asked you if you're one of those weird/delusional Mousasi fans that say things like "Feed Weidman to Mousasi" and you promised me you weren't. You lied.

    I really am not. I would highly favor DC but I do think Mousasi could hold his own. It's just a matchup thing. Cormier struggled with a technical striker like Gus and Moose has a really slick ground game. I just said he could give him problems, but in all likelihood DC would finish him.

    DC only struggled against 3 opponents in his entire career; Jones, Gustafsson, and Rumble.

    All of those guys have decent takedown defense.

    Moose is notoriously bad with defensive wrestling.

    And I'll tell you this- he's not sweeping fat fuck DC like he sweeped sexy 8-pack slim MW Machida.

    He's also about as good as they get at keeping distance with a jab, so who is to say DC gets inside on him early? His defensive wrestling isn't that bad. And again he's very good on his back, I would say a much higher level BJJ than anyone DC has fought in the UFC. But yes there is a good chance DC smashes him. All I was saying is Moose presents some issues and also has top 10 wins at LHW.

    If he can close the distance against Jon Jones he can close the distance against Gayhard Moufaggot

    You're probably right. You seem like a big time Moose hater, more biased in that way than I am in favor of him.

    OP copy & pasted UFC rankings which took Yomero out after he failed a drug test (which is weird because they didn't do the same for many other fighters).

    This is true. Glad you mentioned. Really wanted to see that fight at 200 after Jones dropped out. Would have been awesome & very interesting.

    Only guys I can see even making it somewhat competitive are Jacare, Weidman and Moose but he still beats them all with relative ease.

    Probs DC via points with all fights and some brutall finishes. One thing must be said even Silva is not submission or presure guard pass machine he could have best defensive ground game in elite level of MMA. We have seen ADCC caliber ground game specialist Pelhares strugle in his back and defend himself from strikes against Alan Belcher. Most MW stud ground fighters are used to dominate in ground and we havent seen how they act when they are defending.

    what i mean that even DC strugled to deliver any real dangerous situation to silva in ground that dont mean that he cant dominate others via what he did to Rumble or Hendo.
