He did what he was supposed to do imo.
You don't have to explain your self to people who know nothing about Mma,there's a reason why Mousasi got Goose as the first fight in the UFC.

Haha, it's funny to look at the voter poll and see that 27 people 'picked Latifi'.

I dont know where you can watch the fight but seeing your a Boxing/MMA fan you should definetly watch it.

Mousasi didnt go for the finish but absolutely outclassed Latifi boxing. His distance, timing and use of the jab was incredible to watch. Even Lennox Lewis would be shocked to see a MMA fighter use that style striking. Mousasi created huge openings but for some reason didnt use the setup for his power combinations.

Based on not seeing anything from him that bespeaks to any great talent. He has yet to have a single impressive mma victory. His only impressive victory anywhere is Kyotaro. That's it. He has done not a single other impressive thing in his career. All of his titles? Most of the UFC mid to upper tier middleweights or light heavyweights could have won them facing the same competition.

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

Not a bad performance by Mousasi though a finish would have been really nice. I guess it's easier said than done against an opponent who was swinging wild punches while walking backwards all the time. That said I have nothing but respect for Ilir. He was in there against a much better fighter on one week's notice and didn't stop.

Unimpressed with Mousasi.. and boring fight..

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.
