I don't know about that. While it's the most likely way Filho would win, he'd have to get him down first. Mousasi seems to get better every time he fights...

It'd be an intersting matchup for sure.

I don't know. Filho has looked completely less than impressive this past year or so, and Mousasi has looked like an elite fighter in that time.

I don't doubt that Filho "could" sub Mousasi because he has some great jitz, however I don't think it very likely. I see Mousasi getting the Ko or TKO as more likely.

I agree that filho could sub him pretty quickly and easily if it hit the mat, but that probably wouldnt happen. Mousasi is an intelligent fighter and wouldnt have anything to do with the ground game. It would look like when frank mir beat nog, he would just keep dropping him and letting him get up until he ko'ed him.

Back to victories at Dream, submitting Melvin Manhoef in the first round, Paulo Filho is ready for Alex Shoenauer at Bitetti Combat 4, but already aims tougher challenges overseas. With Dream’s new partnership with Strikeforce, the black belt eyes Gegard Mousasi, who knocked Renato Babalu Sobral out to become the new light heavyweight champion.

“I wanna fight Mousasi and show that with against me is a whole different thing… He doesn’t have my strength, he doesn’t have my level on the ground. He can be a better striker, but he doesn’t have my strength and he’ll go down once and be submitted”, guarantees Fiho, commenting Mousasi’s fight against Sobral. “HE’s well trained, but I don’t think he’s healthy enough to beat me… If he wins, I don’t even want my salary. But I guarantee he’ll be beaten more than he was against (Akihiro) Gono”, said the former WEC middleweight champion.

In the exclusive interview, that you check tomorrow here at TATAME.com, the black belt remembered that he and Mousasi were in the same Pride tournament, but Mousasi was submitted got out when he was submitted by Gono, commented the training for Bitetti Combat, Dream’s partnership with Strikeforce and more.

Mousasi has a great ground game I think on the ground its a toss up.. both have the skill to do in each other.. Though I think Filho is way outclassed standing.. plus I do not think his heart is in it anymore I hope I am wrong but well he has not done anything to impress me as of late.

If you think Frank Mir was worried about Nog's ground game your crazy, Mir's BJJ is every bit as good as Nog's. Mir chose to keep it standing becuase he was absolutly dominating the stand up, he had no reason to get wreckless.

I think Mousasi would wreck his shit even on the ground, but you cannot question Filho's heart. Manhoef was beating him to a bloody Brazilian pulp, but Filho sucked it all in and got the W. That was some great heart by Filho and showed his chin is stellar.
