I hear you, I just never thought of that fight before... SF just needs to get their hands on Ricco, he needs to be in the LHW mix with these guys.

Ricco? The guy may be good at beating lesser or unknown fighters, but how does that give Mousasi any credibility. The last fighter that Ricco beat that was elite was 8 years ago against Couture.

Mousasi is so damn talented. Is not even fair to other fighters that probably work/train harder than him, but still can't reach his level.
But i would love to see Mousasi get a bit stronger and PLLSSS let him start training wrestling seriously.
He has a good ground game, great BJJ, but those won't help him when a powerful wrestler will take him down and control him (like MO did).
The past few months showed how wrestlers can dominate fights, and it's becoming a pattern.
For the non-wrestlers it's either you learn how to wrestle...or wait for some changes in the rules, that will affect the wrestlers.
I wanna see Mousasi with better wrestling!
And i wanna see him fight Roger Gracie next!
At least he won't have to worry about wrestling too much.

.



BELIEVE!

The guy has a win over Feijao! Sound great, let's do this one first^^

But a rematch with King Mo in a Ring would be great too!

Yeah, winner faces Feijo for the Strikeforce Lightheavyweight Title and the unification bout. That would be an interesting bout if Mousasi was actually prepared. I think Mousasi could actually beat Mo or a properly prepared MO could defeat Feijo!

Mo was unprepared against Feijao? That's a rumor I haven't heard yet.

So you are saying Mousasi smashed a few cans to get that title?

His record still is impressive despite it going into the crapper during his rough patch with drugs. And honestly I thought he beat Bigfoot when they fought as well. A motivated Ricco is a beast. I think your grossly underestimating just the level of dominance that at one time was expected from Ricco and I believe its not to late for him to find his way and reestablish himself at the top of the sport.
