I think you're not giving enough credit to Mousasi, who has clearly become much more than a "banger". The guy's only 22 years old and he's improving with leaps and bounds, each time he's in the ring. I think Mousasi could be the next big MW and he could very well win this tournament.
Denis looked great, but you have to give credit to Mousasi for broadening his skillset and subbing a superior grappler (on paper at least).
