Where is Mousasi currently training ?? If he is doing the CroCop/Fedor thing then he is at a serious disadvantage. A guy like Mousasi could benefit a ton by joining an elite camp. It could certainly help him close that TDD gap. And it would help his conditioning out. Id be surprised if he trained as hard as they do at the top 5-10 camps.

And yeah the Machida fight seems really fun. They both have their own unique way of striking so it would be interesting to see who would come out on top. I imagine Machida would be the favorite but id go with Mousasi 60/40.

I would definitely favor him over Shogun.
I remember reading Mousasi training like an amateur or sth like that. He definitely isn't a part of any top gyms, that's for sure. Hope he does find a good camp for himself once he enters UFC. Though his current methods are clearly working for him.

Just because he beat the shit out of Mo from his guard doesn't mean he has bad td , also you Can tell that it's a game plan because in the 3 round of Jardine and osp fights Mousasi easily takes them down.

Yeah, Mousasi pretty much comes to fight, not to win a contest.
