Could this man have an answer for the MW champ?



Before you say i'm nuts and he would get eaten alive, hear me out.

Gegard is easily one of the best pure strikers in MMA. As shown against his K1 fight against then champion, Kyotaro, one of the most elusive HW kickboxers out there. (Mousasi rocked and almost finished him, eventually taking the decision). His biggest weakness is his wrestling and TDD, a weakness he wouldn't have to worry about against Anderson. While i see guys like Munoz and Sonnen taking care of him, i'd actually see him posing a threat to Anderson. I'm very intrigued by this match-up. What do you guys think, would he have a shot against The Spider?

Gegard is talented as hell, but is to mentally weak to win. Plus his striking is good but its not good enough to hang with Silva.

You realize this guy is completely unprofessional and gasses after a single round of striking and won't fight at MW anymore because he is too lazy to train properly and make the cut. What he has is hand technique and power he doesn't have the multitude of striking skills that Silva has or the physical gifts that allow him to do ridiculous shit.

He hasn't even fought at MW since '08. Though if he were willing to make the cut again, I'd love to see the fight.

Actually, I'd love to see Mousasi in the UFC period.

No, he would get demolished so bad he would have to retire.

He will get his ass kicked just like the others, and maybe even badly than them!

Don't forget that AS has a kick boxing and mauy thai backgroud. So I don't see him week even against Mussasi!

Man, Silva has mental advantages no man has (only Fedor once!). Also his head movement, and body movement is very hard to train for or even predict!

This man is the PHENOM of MMA, just like Ronaldo is the PHENOM of football.
