All I have to say is it's about damn time.
Mustapha has been a top up-and-comer for a long time, and it'll give the UFC alot of exposure in the British and European market to have a guy who's well established in that scene and has a pretty good game.
It's also great for the heavyweight division, because they have been slacking off when it comes to pulling in new guys, and this guy is definitely a warrior who can make some fights interesting.
I don't necessarily think that he's going to be a title contender in the UFC, because his technical skills definitely have a way to go, but he brings alot to the talent pool, so it's nice to see him getting signed.
I do imagine that he'll be fighting, like Bisping, primarily in European, which is good for him, as he'll be a main card fighter in the events over there.
Hopefully the UFC will toss him another European guy, probably a prospect, in his first fight, so that he can eat the guy alive and show his skills to the Americans watching by tape delay, but either way, he's going to be an exciting fighter.
Glad that this got posted. Repped.
As for him fighting Cain, that'd be a great fight. I think that he'd make a good fight if he could force Cain to stand with him, and he could always make that happen. It would definitely be an interesting match-up, though I'd probably take my boy Cain in that fight.
