Gustafsson wins this fight both standing and on the ground.

Mousasi just entered the realm of good fighters and is ready to do the same thing Fedor, Lombard, Diaz and other overrated fighters have done...

420 That's a pretty ignorant thing to say that Mousasi/Fedor/Diaz are overrated.

If the same Gus that fought Rua comes in, he'll win the fight via very close decision. Gegard has tons of experience and has great striking. It's going to truly show where both guys are in the division, but it's too bad they didn't split them up as I see them both as contenders.

Either way we get treated to an awesome fight!

Two of my favorite fighters, love this fight but they are both unique challenges for the title, shame one has to lose at this stage.

I favor Gus because of his movement and volume of attacks, he has the fitness to do it all night which makes him very hard to outpoint. He also has mad power and is the bigger fighter.

Gegard will have to use his great jab, kicks and head movement to get inside, land strikes and get a body lock. He can definitely strike with Gus, but he risks getting tired and being hit hard when he tries to advance. His best opportunity to do damage will be on the ground, he should have no problem maintaining top position for a minute at least. Gus should be able to scramble back to feet, but he won't do it without being hit.

This should be a great display of MMA by two respectful young fighters.

Mousasis last fight winning over Mike Kyle. I watched it on youtube.

- Kyle was 4-6 in his last 10 fights PRIOR to losing to Mousasi
- The fight was pretty even on the feet before Mousasi got his takedown


If Mousasi got hit like that vs Kyle he will be hit by Gus harder and more often. Neither Shogun nor Silva was able to pin Gus down to the mat. I do not think Mousasi could do that either.

Gus is faster, strike harder, has reach and height advantage.

Gus stamina and ground game is at leist equal to Mousasi.

Gus probably has better takedown and takedown defence looking at how often Mousasi has been taken down historically.

Conclusion:
I see very slim changes for Mousasi winnnig. An in shape Gus should win this one without problems.

Did Mousasi really get hit by Kyle? I remember him ducking and dodging every single punch. I may be wrong though.

I picked Gustafsson. Purely because although they have similar skill sets, I see Gus pushing that bit further than Mousasi.

Mousasi's probably the best striker at 205 other than Jones. Not many guys in the division could beat up Kyotaro in a straight stand-up fight. Mousasi's a dangerous guy, I just hope he's improved his wrestling defence, otherwise it could be a long night for him. I like Gustaf, but I'm probably backing Gegard here!

It's mad how nobody has picked one of these guys to win flawlessly, it's a close one.

Kyle connected 7 times in 2 minutes of standup. Mostly kicks.
