Soko vs. Gegard Mousasi confirmed for DREAM Super Hulk Tournament

FiveOuncesOfPain.com has recently been informed by sources close to the situation that Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou will be facing off with Gegard Mousasi in the next round of DREAM’s Super Hulk Tournament.

Sokoudjou rebounded from consecutive losses at the hands of Luiz Arthur Cane and Renato “Babalu” Sobral when he stopped the much larger Jan Nortge by TKO with a storm of punches in the first round of the DREAM Super Hulk Tournament .

The Team Quest fighter fell under a great amount of criticism after failing to cease his assault on the fallen Nortje when the referee called a halt to the action. Sokoudjou recently apologized for his actions on the latest episode of Inside MMA.

Mousasi is fresh off of his first round submission over Mark Hunt at the same Super Hulk Tournament that was held on May 26, 2009. He has gone undefeated in his last twelve straight bouts.

Recent reports have speculated that Mousasi will be facing off with Renato Sobral at the upcoming Affliction III: Trilogy event as well.

Mousasi, first round. On the ground or standing up, sokky is completely outclassed. His management was right when they said that this isnt a smart fight for him.

I agree, not a very interesting matchup. Mousasi will just pick him apart, end of story.

Isn't Mousasi booked for Sobral and/or Belfort as well? Man this guy sure keeps up the good work!

Mousassi VS Minoaman in the finals, the two smallest fighters in the tournament of a "Super Hulk".

Right kick, Hospital.
Left kick, Cemetery.

Mousasi is arguably the most well-rounded MW in MMA. He will tear Sokky a new one.

I hope Minowaman beats Hong Man Choi that should be a great match-up. Anyways lets cut to the chase Gegard will teach Sokky another lesson on how to be beaten. Sokky is much less educated in mixed martial arts and will just lose this one all over the place technically.

Gegard Mousasi wins by Technical something KO, Submission or Decision

Easy win for Mousasi, who will then squash Minowa.

Easy money for Gegard. I guess Dream decided to give him an easy tournament, since he had the toughest opponents in the MW GP.
