Where is Mousasi currently training ?? If he is doing the CroCop/Fedor thing then he is at a serious disadvantage. A guy like Mousasi could benefit a ton by joining an elite camp. It could certainly help him close that TDD gap. And it would help his conditioning out. Id be surprised if he trained as hard as they do at the top 5-10 camps.

And yeah the Machida fight seems really fun. They both have their own unique way of striking so it would be interesting to see who would come out on top. I imagine Machida would be the favorite but id go with Mousasi 60/40.

I would definitely favor him over Shogun.
I remember reading Mousasi training like an amateur or sth like that. He definitely isn't a part of any top gyms, that's for sure. Hope he does find a good camp for himself once he enters UFC. Though his current methods are clearly working for him.

Yeah, Mousasi pretty much comes to fight, not to win a contest.

Good news, I think mousasi has potential to be one of the better light heavys in the UFC. Either way him entering the UFC should make for some interesting and exciting match ups

Excellent find and post.

"Mousasi has taken the long, tortured road to the UFC."
This has sharpened his mind and skill sets.

"He’s like the private investigator, no, more like the hit man, sitting next to you at the coffee shop, studying your every move as you sit naively sipping your morning coffee.

He’s watching and waiting, and you have no idea." I'll be watching intently.

Mousasi would wipe the floor with Shogun... I don't get why people still have faith in Shogun... He's hasn't been a top level fighter in a very long time...Try Pride.. Man the 205 division sucks..
