    How do you think Gegard will do in the UFC? I don't see him being better than top 10. I don't see him making the top 5.

    Agreed. Mousasi is a fucking animal.

    If he's for the first time really taking training seriously, working on his wrestling, etc. No one can stand and bang with Mousasi that I've seen, if he can keep the fight on the feet I can't see many people challenging his footwork, combos and hand speed.

    Needs to train TDD all day, every day. He's never gonna fight Mo again. He'd be a good guy to train with.

    Feeling, thinking and knowing are three different things. Regardless of whether he knows or not good luck with that.

    Motivation? Remains to be seen.

    I like Mousasi a lot. He has he even wondered how people in the US cut weight-so much. He is probably starting to learn. I'd LOVE,LOVE.....LOVE to see him back at 185. He said he would do it if given the right competition.

    Mousasi vs AS. I'd pay a lot to see that fight.

    He's extremely dangerous for anyone, but if he wants to be championship material he HAS to improve his cardio and TD defense.

    This. Unfortunately he's too lazy to cut down there.

    Pretty much this. Otherwise he'll lose rounds even if he is "King Mo'ing" them on his back and taking no damage in return. Unified scoring system and all.

    Maybe. I think Mousasi stylistically has the tools to give Anderson some fits. Mousasi would easily be the best striker Anderson has faced in his MMA career. It'd be an interesting match i'd like to see. I think Mousasi beats most MW's not named Anderson and could take the title after Anderson retires (Mousasi is still very young)
