He's correct in that fighting on lower shows doesn't really prepare you for the highest level and pressures of being in the UFC. This is like an ongoing thing with Alistair being the last victim.


Mousasi, like Alistair has obvious talent but mentally he'll lose.

I don't think veteran fighters like Mousasi and Alistair have that specific problem. Mousasi has fought in tons of high pressure situations in front of huge crowds in both K1 and MMA.

Alistair had no problem dealing with the pressure of the UFC, he walked right through Brock. He's just a guy who naturally gives up or underestimates his opponent.

I have always called Mousasi overrated as hell. But have always realized his immense skill.

Lets face it, his record is inflated with cans or one-dimensional part time MMA fighters like Manhoef. I do like the fact that he is a finisher though, he gets guys he is supposed to beat...out of there.

Fighting low level fighters doesn't necessarily mean much. But I can't tell if he is closer to Barao coming in or Lombard. Probably closer to Barao as I think he holds a lot more pure skill than Lombard.

Hope we see him at his best in the UFC.

Nothing like being in the UFC. The UFC is the highest level. A lot of football players play in BIGGER venues in college then in the pros but it still gets to them when they are on MNF or something like that.

Does Mousaai really seem like the type of guy to get Octagon jitters?

I'm hoping this 5'8" guy is a powerhouse. At that height, there is no excuse to be fighting at 205. Does Ilir cut weight at all?
