Nick Diaz, King Mo, JZ Calvan, Aoki, Alvarez, Melendez, Fedor, this list is just ridiculously long. Yeah, they are all chumps.
Dana White appreciates your blind patronage,
King Mo is twice the wrestler Rashad is. A man who lay and prayed Rampage for 15 minutes.
King Mo must not be on the level of Keith Jardine either, seeing as he was up on the scorecards before the knockdown against Rampage.
I'm guessing Mousasi isn't anywhere near their level either?
Jake Shields is though, because he signed with the UFC. He's instantly better now.
You realize that alot of the guys you just named are in different weight classes?? Not sure how much you know about MMA but if they are in different weight classes they typically will NOT fight each other. You basically proved NOTHING by naming those fighters off. Also nope.. that list ISNT ridiculously long.
Dana White DOESNT appreciate your lack of knowledge.
MMA Wrestling Rashad would tool King Mo. He layd and prayd Rampage because he couldnt stand with him. Nothing wrong with winning a fight by domination.
Keith Jardine isnt in the UFC anymore. Rampage also beat Keith Jardine while being really over-trained.
Mousasi is good but as a LHW he would be a Great B level fighter. In my opinion he would cleanly lose to any of these guys.
Rashad,Rampage,Machida,Shogun,Jon jones,Couture,Rich Franklin,Ryan Bader
Guys that im 50/50 on.
Thiago Silva,Phil Davis,Brandon Vera(40/60 -Mousasi) Steve Cantwell,Forrest Griffin,Matt Hamill,Chuck Liddel (40/60 Mousasi), Tito Ortiz
So in reality at LHW Mousasi would have an extremely tough time making an Impact. I think the wrestlers in the division would have their way with him and the strikers surely wouldn't be afraid of anything he brings. He doesnt have enough power or the size to win fights against any of the people i mentioned in the first list. The most interesting fights for Mousasi in my opinion are in the 50/50 list. I would love to see him fight Thiago Silva. Sadly if Mousasis first fight was against a average fighter like Matt Hamill i would say that his run would get stopd abruptly. There is just alot of bad match ups for him. Maybe if he could get some training in with Chael or Couture then he could start making an impact. He could also use some more muscle.
In MW Mousasi could have a good career. Still if he fought Chael Sonnen unless its a title fight i seriously doubt he could win. I dont see him submitting Chael within the first 3 and Mousasi looked pretty tired against MO so im not sure if he could hang with Chael. Vitor Belfort would most likely KO Mousasi. Yushin Okami would probably have his way with Gegard... same with Nate. Still though i can see Gegard being a healthy addition to the MW in the UFC.
Jake Shields im still not sold on because he hasnt really fought anyone. The Dan Henderson fight is a GREAT win BUT Henderson looked like he was missing his spine for that fight and he still rocked Jake. Il hold my judgment on Jake until i see how he does against constant upper competition. King MO still needs work to do.. his stand-up is pretty bad, he lacks defense and he has a hard time holding people down. I think King MO is legit as a prospect and in 2-3 years i think he WILL be in the UFC. Gegard Mousasi is also legit but was exposed by King Mo, Gegard has still alot of work to do BUT he is young so im sure he will be a huge star in the future. He either needs to drop weight classes or needs to lift some weights. Also if he permanently switched camps and trained with someone like Chael.. i can see that doing wonders for him. Even better if he switches between Team Quest/Extreme Couture and then goes to train with Black House to tighten some holes in his standup.
