If the UFC wants to toss Mousasi a bone, give him Rashad Evans. If he defeats Rashad he solidifies himself in the division, and he's basically 1 win away from a title shot. If the UFC wanted to build Mousasi up they could give him washed up Rampage. I think worse comes to worse Mousasi gets paired up against Ryan Bader or Phil Davis.

Personally, I don't want him to go to MW just cuz I like kingpin AS, but it would be interesting if he did. He would fair a lot better against those chumps.

I've seen a lot of Gegard's fights and all I can say is that I don't see what the hype is about. He was losing Saturday in the striking department barring a couple of leg kicks and then took down and submitted a man with no ground game. It wasn't exactly impressive.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

He's going to get exposed big time. The two somewhat notable people he's fought he's lost and went to a draw with. Sure Jardine shouldn't have been a draw but seriously how did he not finish him? If he's as good as everyone says he should have easily finished Keith.

Mousasi is a great addition. Dude has an outstanding record, some very solid wins and still has a lot of potential.

He has wins over Mike Kyle, Ovince St. Preux, Babalu, Mark Hunt, Jacare, Melvin Manhoef, Dennis Kang, Evangelista Santos and Hector Lombard. Not to mention he did much more damage to King Mo. All Mo did was hold him down all night.

The dude is legit. Will he win the title? Probably not. But he is a lot better than a lot of the people in the 205 division. If he dropped to 185, he would wreck most of the division.
