I don't really know what to expect, Gegard has a huge hole in his game when it comes to wrestling and stylistically its a bad match up for him. That said we are talking a fairly large gap when we are talking about the level of fighter here. Gegard could destroy him, Gegard could get held down for 3 rounds or it could be a fairly even match up where Gegard controls the stand up and works from his back but gets repeatedly held down for long periods. None of these would shock em especially considering Mousasi has not been preparing for a wrestler and that is where he is weak.
