I'm currently leaning towards Gustaf via superior grappling, but Gegard has really been working on his grappling/wrestling as of late. It's a damn good fight.

And fighting at home also gotta improve his chances. But Gegard's striking is very dangerous, so I wonder if he can actually outstrike Gus...

I picked Mousasi based on talent only. If his cardio isn't upto par then it could definitely go the other way though.

If Gus is smart he's gonna shoot for a takedown within the first minute of the fight. In my opinion he has to use the 'in and out and takedown' strategy if he wants to win this fight.

Still think Mousasi is wildly overrated by most hardcore fans. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Gustafsson out-struck Mousasi, despite his credentials.

Gus by UD. Mousasi is the second most overrated fighter in the game and hasnt beaten anyone of value since Jacare and that was like five years ago and at MW.

While I agree that Mpusasi is overawed i also would argue that stylistically this is a good fight for him as Gus doesn't have the style to prey on the holes in mousasis game.
