I don't think his particulary slower than Shogun and where did you get that toughness comparison? Mousasi hasn't been rocked before. Never been finished due to strikes before and is no slouche on his back. The problem with him is he goes to fight, not to win a contest. Hell, he did more damage on his back to King Mo than he did on top.

I like Mousasi, but I don't like the chances of a guy who fought to a draw with Jardine defeating the best LHW on Earth.

Jones would win easily and I doubt Mousasi ever even contends for a title.

He's simply not that good.

I think mousasi has a better shot than any other lhw at this moment. id also like to see him fight shogun, just because it would be an insane fight.

UFC SIGN MOUSASI AND EDDIE ALVAREZ!

Agreed.

Not the MT of Shogun. Not as much strength or wresting. Not the heart. And I really don't think he has the BJJ. Yea his Sambo is enough to sub bums. But I truly think Shogun has a good ass guard and can at least get out of the bottom of wrestlers. Plus he went 5 round with getting beat up by Hendo. Mousasi couldn;t even go 1.5 with a guy who laid on him.

Mousasi has skills. But has a lot to prove.

He's slower mentally, Mousasi's problem is he has technical ability but he does not have the right mind to be a champ. He plods and moves his feet slowly, Shogun throws faster combos and he has the ability to pounce when he smells weakness. Gegard has all the tools but he doesn't put them together very well, it's like he'd be a good kickboxer and a good grappler but he's not an elite mma fighter. Don't get me wrong, he's a great fighter but we're talking about matching him up against JBJ who would tool him worse than he did to Bonnar.

Have to agree with a few others in this thread. As much as I like the guy, I don't see Mousasi - who fought to a draw with a more than shot Keith Jardine - having any sort of chance against Jon Jones. In fact, I'd dare say that the last few fighters Jones has straight up stomped would beat Mousasi (Shogun, Machida, and perhaps even Jackson, presuming he used his wrestling).

Mousasi has a ton of potential and is extremely talented...but he`s definitely not the guy I would pick to beat Jones. Not now at least...He went to a draw with Jardine and his last two wins are against mid-level fighters at best. I would like to see him in the UFC against a top 10 LHW.
