UFC-Strikeforce unification

After watching the latest strikeforce event (which apparently Dana White attended live) I thought what would be interesting cross-promotional matchups once the strikeforce contracts expire.

Following: Cain , JDS, Werdum, Shogun, Machida, Weidman, Pettis, Aldo, Melendez

Yeah we get it, everyone wants to see the same fights, Champs vs Champs. I mostly want to see Mousasi enter the UFC LHW division, he was dissapointing against Jardine but I think he has more to offer. There are some sick match ups for him there and he's not a wrestler!

He had a point deducted and Jardine abused Take downs and stole the 1 st round after that he destroyed Jardine.

In reality Mousasi won the fight, just the system is broken.

Velasquez will be back

Regardless, Mousasi is overhyped. Jardine took his fight on a 8 day notice and and gassed at the end of round 1 and he was still not able to finish him.

Not to mention he has horrible TDD.

youre so smart yet you cant answer the ts question.
who would mousasi be matched up with? most 205 fighters have better wrestling then Jardine, so who do u see him matched up with? maybe Diabate in a kickboxing match.

What mo is talking about is a news story on ESPN (and other sites) that basically consists of Fedor saying he wants to fight hendo, but Coker saying that its not set up yet.

If you're so smart then tell me what the question of this thread is, cus I can't see it in the OP. Thread is about possible unification matches, and I stated I'd like to see how Mousasi fares in the UFC LHW division.

Mousasi is actually good on the ground, and I'm for any fighter that looks for submissions rather than takedowns and dry humping. There's only one wrestler at LHW now who uses wrestling as a back up and not a primary strategy, and that's Quinton Jackson, shame we've got King Mo clawing to get in the UFC now too.
