Man that was brutal. The haymakers were way out of range, not sure why he wasn't relentlessly pursuing the takedown - better to take risks than eat that jab all night.

Mousasi in his Fuel interview looks like he wasn't even in a fight. He didn't comment much on his knee surgery or how long it'd take to recover after surgery, I think the interviewer did a bad job of pressing what's important.

What an amazing fight. The can crusher crushed a can. I am so *yawn* impressed with seeing the exact same thing from a fighter that I have seen in every other fight without a sign of improvement.

This fight was a waste of time.

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

Aside from that 1 takedown, how could you say Mousasi hasn't improved even a little bit based on this fight?

Because he looked exactly the same as he always has?

Vs. more of a can than he usually fights as well. A can who had to get up off the bench and be thrown to the wolves on short notice.

Mousasi has skills. But this fight showed us nothing much. Only thing we learned is he has a knee injury...and that certainly isn't an improvement.

I'm an enormous Mousasi fan, for years and years and years now, and he has improved a lot and is training legitimately, full time, for the first time in his long career.


But yeah there's nothing you can learn from the Ilir fight, but that wasn't his fault at all. He agreed to fight Gus, Gus stepped out, Mousasi fought a late replacement and dominated him strategically. Nothing else to see here really.

I'm just pissed about the injury. I figure he wins here with little to no damage and then fight again fairly quick. But looks like that won't be the case. It will probably be another half year until I actually feel like Mousasi is in the UFC.

Mousasi looked horrible, no excuses can get over that fact. He needs to step it up.
