Damn, I'm having trouble deciding on...
Kang vs Mousasi.

Kang hasn't looked so great lately, but Gegard has been putting on some really good performances, with a 7-fight win streak.

My brain says Mousasi, but my gut says Kang! Who are you guys picking, and why?

This is definetly a step up in competition for Mousasi, very interested in this fight - if I had to pick then i'd pick Kang based on who they've fought but I wouldn't be suprised with a Mousasi KO.

Same for me F>A! They're both highly skilled and well-rounded, but I think Kang takes this one due to his experience against top competition. From his recent interviews, it sounds like he's taking this fight very seriously which means a dangerous Kang. Cool avatar btw.

i'm taking gegard because i believe he's a little better on the ground and hes definitely no slouch on the feet. kang just got KO'd pretty bad by akiyama so maybe that'll play a part in him wanting to trade.

the betting lines are good on gegard btw, if someone wants to risk making some cash

Thanks for your opinions guys! This could definitely be fight of the night. Gegard is really good standing, and his ground game has improved a lot. I'd give Kang the experience and ground advantage, but I think if Akiyama gave Denis problems standing, Gegard could knock him out for sure.

After thinking it over, I think Kang will play it safe and win a decision, but I would not be shocked if Gegard pulled off the win via stoppage. Should be a great scrap.

Wow, did not expect that ending at all. :confused03:

Wow, Kang looked bad. Mousasi isn't even that great on the ground, and it seemed like Kang just wanted him to triangle him.

I wouldn't say he looked bad.

He looked quite good for the majority of the fight, nice 1-2 then a takedown, then a nice sub attempt.

But followed by one of the dumbest things I've ever seen him do, in basically triangling himself, jesus.

He was looking good for 90% of the short fight, but for that other 10% bad is an understatement, that was horrific.

I don't know, but Kang, a solid BJJ guy, shouldn't be caught by bangers. Sure, you can get caught by a rapid sub, but this was not a rapid sub; Kang could've gotten out of it. I don't know, just weird. If he were caught and KO'ed, I wouldn't really mind. I mean, yeah, he got caught, fighters get caught, it happens. But to not get out of an obvious triangle attempt by a guy with little ground skills, wow.
