Agree. More for how bad he gassed vs Mo. But yea I wouldn't be shocked.

If Mousasi shows up it can be a damn good fight.

I really can't decide who I think is going to win. Mousasi has some holes, but when the guy is on, he's an absolute beast. Alexander on the other hand has been improving at a crazy pace and provides an interesting match up for Jon Jones. I think if Mousasi fought Jones, Jon would just use his obvious superior wrestling to absolutely dominate him, no doubt in my mind. Although the question is not who has a better chance against the champion.

I don't see Gustafsson using his grappling here, but he might because he is significantly bigger. On the feet.. Who knows? Think his size and reach could be a factor? Gustafsson only has half an inch of a reach advantage despite being 4 inches taller, but what about that leg reach?

This fight is really up in the air for me. Apart of me wants to see Gustafsson win because I want to see Jones maul the mauler (nothing against Alexander, it's only because I want to see Jones eliminate his potential threats in people's eyes), but I also want to see Mousasi have a good entrance into the UFC.

I'm a huge Mousasi fan, but I'm not going to suck his nuts and waste your time. I like Mousasi in a SD, my only worry is what Joshua7789 said about the caliber and frequency of the fights Gus has over Mousasi. Either way, I'm really looking forward to this fight.

I don't know if he gassed or not, but it sure seemed like he had all the time in the world and was really laid back even for him. It was like the fight was fixed and he was just going through the motions.

This is a very interesting fight in which I could see it going either way.

On paper, Mousasi is more experienced, good striking with decent combos, but his glaring weakness is wrestling.

Gus is young, has a great heart and has the reach advantage.

Mousasi has to come with his A+ game if he wants this, Gus has been hungry for a long time and it's showing.

I predict a similar fight to the Gus/Shogun battle.... Alex with stay on the outside, utilize his pitter patter strikes and have a few trip takedowns to secure a hard fought 29/28 unanimous decision.

After watching both of their last 5 matches I don't think this fight will even be close. Mousasi's grappling is crap and his striking is ridiculously overrated. He actually got outstruck in his last match by someone who Gus would have koed and was forced to take him down.

To be honest I have never understood the hype behind Mousasi. His best win was a fluke upkick ko over Jacare. Other than that his most notable opponents have been King Mo, Keith Jardine, and Lombard. He's 1-1-1 against this level of competition. I'm not exactly stoked for his UFC debut.

Except that he gave Jardine the worst beatdown of his career and bloodied Mo up from his guard while the judges were watching reruns of Friends on their monitors.

Wait seriously....a guy he went to a draw with and couldn't finish. Sure the draw was bad but he couldn't finish him how is that the worst meltdown. Also bitchslapping a guy from your back is not winning a round.

...If Gus was slow and had bad hands, footwork,ect., Mousasi would make quick work of him. Not the case. Gus has very good hands. He throws nice, smooth combinations with well-timed angles. Gus finds his range quickly too. Mousasi is always dangerous but not here. The huge reach advantage for Gus combined with skillset will be too much to handle. Gus isn't afraid to do takedowns and with his size, he can take Gegard down. I don't see Mousasi winning. Gus by UD landing the harder, more significant shots...
