I'm pulling for Mousasi and I think he has a very good chance in this fight.

I don't care that much about who wins this fight. I just want to see an exciting fight where both guys bring their A games.

This will be a very technical match up. The UFC always does this to newcomers. Not sure if Alex is going to want to stand up for long against Mousasi. I'd imagine he's going to take him down and wear on em.

I wish they didn't create this match up because these two are definitely potential contenders.

The Mousasi/Kyle fight, being in SF, is still free on youtube.


Mousasi looked incredible in that fight, much more fired up than usual. He even didn't look sleepy at the announcing part of the fight.

I think it's dead right where he says he "Got more professional" and "got out of his comfort zone."

His head movement in the Kyle fight is awesome. His take-down ability seems way improved and as always, his ground and pound is the most underrated in MMA.

I don't think Gus is going to be able to use is movement against a guy as technically evasive as Moose, and I'm no longer convinced Gus can shrug his TD attempts off either.

I could see Gus taking a Cruz-like UD if he can stick and jab long enough. I think maybe at some point in the fight he ends up on bottom, getting rocked by heavy shots though.


Love both fighters, both are studs and great representatives of MMA.

Mousasi has a real good chance if he comes in with some cardio and urgency.

He is just as good as Gustaf everywhere. Maybe even better.

Hard fight to call.
If Gustafsson comes in with the right gameplan I can see him winning, but he will be afforded few mistakes against a guy like Mousasi.

there is no way Gustafsson is gonna lose this fight in Sweden .. If it was the same Gustafsson that fought Thiago Silva I think this fight would be near 50/50 with possibly a slight edge to Gegard .. but with him fighting Vlad .. thiago Silva and shogun Rua I think he is gonna much improved especially training with guys like Phil Davis and others .. he is raw Talent but he is a raw talent that is a lot more polished and more experianced now compared to when he fought Thiago Silva .. I see him winning though by a possible late KO/TKO or a 30-27 , 29-28 , 30-27 UD
