I'd pick Davis to win more often than not, and Bader would be a coin toss.
Sensible matchups from a ranking perspective, but high risk and bad matchups stylistically,
I think there's a good chance Mousasi comes away from those fights with a decision loss, and another man's seed in his belly.
I do agree that they're not ideal match ups for him, I was thinking more about rankings then the actual matchups lol.
But if Mousasi couldnt get pass Davis or Bader then he really shouldn't be fighting Goose then. Good for Mousasi that he got such a high profile fight in his debut, as I said if he wins and the stars align, he could very well be getting a title shot.
Big risk for Goose in this one. But I see him walking away with the W.
