lol @ Mousasi
 
Now that Feijao is suspended for 1 year, who is left for Mousasi to fight?

He let go of trying out for the 2012 olympics in boxing, was not offered a contract by UFC when Affliction fell apart and instead signed with Strikeforce, upon which Dana White wanted to sign him together with Fedor. Now he recently signed another 6 fight contract. Is he completely screwed?

Let's look at the current SF 205lbs division (excluding suspended Feijao): OSP (who he already beat), Gia Villante and Virgil Zwicker. So maybe fight Gia 3 times and Zwicker 3 times? he cant even go to HW because that division doesnt exist anymore.

Not sure if you've been under a rock but Zuffa own SF... Pretty sure his contract is transferable to the UFC!

All they need to do is get rid of the Light Heavyweight division just like they did the Heavyweight division.

It's been a while since his last loss, and Light Heavyweight's gonna challengers, bring Mousasi over give him a favorable match up, he wins, he fights and loses to Jones in a title fight.

I'd love to see Mousasi vs. Texeira.

They should have brought Mousasi over to fight Shogun, the tards.

How about Glover Teixeira??? Ding ding ding...

How about we find if Mousasi can stuff a takedown before we bring him over? His showings against Jardine and Mo were pathetic. His OSP fight doesn't tell me much because OSP is never going to be even a middle of the road fighter.

His striking is good but without any takedown defense...

I read somewhere that StrikeForce Fighters can no longer transfer over the UFC for a while because of a contractual agreement with Showtime got enforced. So guys like Mousasi, Cormier, and Melendez wont be coming over to the UFC anytime soon.

So while Zuffa may own both Strikeforce and UFC, Showtime has legal papers preventing Zuffa from tampering with Strikeforce in this specific sense as long as they are contracted with Showtime. They shouldve left when they had the chance alongside the last wave: Nick Diaz, Mayhem Miller, Del Rosario etc.

Agreed, that's a no brainer and possibly FOTY candidate. IMO Shogun would be shooting for take-downs like against Henderson while getting relentlessly peppered by jabs and uppercuts.


Moose will be in the UFC in a short period of time IMO. It'd be great to have him fight Phil Davis instead of the nobody Davis is fighting.

they need to get the fighters over to ufc soon instead of just wasting away
