While your reasoning is sound and logical and I get what you are saying... even I can't agree that Mousasi would beat Hendo easily.

I can't think of anyone that has beaten Hendo "easily" and would argue that Henderson would be Mousasi's greatest test to data. (Although, perhaps not stylistically)

If you asked me this two years ago, i would have gone with Hendo hands down, but i feel like the Franklin fight was the turning point in Hendo's career. He looked like hell and had a very hard time controlling Rich. I realize that Hendo just made Bisping look very bad, but Bisping was circling straight into Hendos power hand and the inevitable eventually happened during that fight. Mousasi is a very good striker with a sick ground game who will not even be slightly intimidated by Henderson (i feel like that was a huge part of Bispings problem in there fight).

How does one "easily" dispose of Mr. Henderson?? He doesnt get KO'd so im guessing if its gonna be easy it will be a sub??? I really dont see that happening.

Its weird, 9 out of 10 times ppl side with the legend, Fedor vs Lesnar, Nog vs Cain, Randy vs Vera and cite a million fights that the legend has proven himself in and how this untested up and comer isnt ready etc etc... it feels like Fedor manlove trickling down to Mousasi a lil around here?? He is obv a really great fighter, but check out the resume, nobody close to a dan henderson on there, Sokky seemed to hold his own in that 1st round, Dan wont gas like Sokky tho, i dont think it will be an easy fight for Mousasi and we will really get a gauge of where he is atm at LHW.

Great matchup should it ever happen!
considering how active mousassi is on the ground (as he showed in japan)he could just as easily sub him...mousasi is no slouch!!

If he wants to leave the division, leave the sport, who cares, Beat it, nobody tunes in to watch him anyways, and his little fake I dont speak English.

Maybe I was a little over the top when I said Mousasi would beat Hedno easily. But I still think Mousasi would be a nightmare for Dan. If you compare Franklin and Mousasi, Mousasi is similar to Franklin but I think he is slightly superior in every aspect of the game. Mousasi has K-1 level striking, and is far more slick on the ground than Franklin. Hendo had his hands full with Franklin, and Gegard would pose similar problems.

I'd still pick him against Mousasi as I just can't see him getting KO'd/TKO'd by him and think he'll be able to land the big shot or GnP him out.
I think Mousasi needs a fight or two more and I don't know why he couldn't be capable of beating someone like Hendo.

Mousasi is a prodigy if I've ever seen one and though he's fresh, he's got potential - and if he stays under Fedor's wing I think he'll be the best ever to fight at his weight.

Baby Fedor was under Fedors wing?? You sure thats the best place to be?? I rather see Mousasi with a better camp then that tbh i think it would do more for him

Poor Kiril, I think Gegard's striking is where it should be, there is no better place to learn sambo and submissions than Fedor? Is there? Let me restate there is no tougher training partner than Fedor. Cannot comment on the camp since its in Russia? Other than Fedor and his Bro...don't know any other mega successes from the Red Devil Fight team?

def learning from fedor cant be a bad thing, but sometimes great fighters arent great teachers and Fedor had to learn from somebody aswell it just seems weird his camp isnt full of top guys like Black House, AKA, Jackson or w/e i wonder how many sparring sessions Gerard gets in against top guys there that ARENT fedor. Im sure Fedor cant train with him constantly because of the weight difference and both preparing for different guys.

Does Mousasi speak Russian btw??

He is Armenian, so he likely does, good question. Here is a list of the Red Devil fighters...its from Wiki so take it with a grain of salt but they may be OK, even though they are not well known in the US?
