    UFC & MMA Top Ten Unofficial Rankings, Standings, Top 10 -- MMANEWS.com

    Shields has beaten some big names, IMO bigger names than Mousasi has beaten. To name a few; Robbie Lawler, Sakurai, Dave Menne, Okami, Condit, etc.

    Who has Mousasi beaten that makes you believe it would be an easy victory for him? An aging Sobral? An aged Mark Hunt? Or perhaps Souza and Manhoef are the clinchers for you? Nowhere near the competition that Shields has beaten.


    I think Shields will beat Miller quite convincingly. And I think he would take Mousasi as well.


    Those names you mention? Robbie Lawler, Sakurai, Dave Menne, Okami, Condit, etc.

    They sound like Professional Bowlers...or should be! I don't want to take away from these fighters but they are stepping stones at best. We all saw what Okami did in his last fight. David Menne? Didn't He help Moses carry the Ten commandments down from the mountain a few years ago!

    Robbie lawler couldn't submit a letter to the editor let alone an actual fighter!

    Sakuai should be doing infomercials for a cooking product.

    They are the top competition? Shields would look like a total amateur against Mousasi.

    And for the record. An aging Sobral would tear shields arm clean out of socket. Mahoeuf would knock Shields head off so far the earth would have two solar eclispes. the moon and Shields skull. and Mark Hunt would bive him the atomic butt drop all the way to china!

    I'll take Mousasi all day long. Shields has a the best ground control game but he couldn't finish a bag of Doritos, let alone a fight.

    Mousasi would kick Shields head into Seat 3 in the 25th row.

    Shields is a great fighter but Gegard is a REALLY great fighter and is just a phenom at 185. Too much upside for Shields to combat.

    Shields has zero stand up and Mousasi has good enough groundgame not to get subbed just like that. Of course miracles can happen but i see Mousasi winning 9/10 times.

    Let's discuss skill................you said that "Even if I imagine that they are the same weight when they fight, Mousasi would smash him." Please elaborate.

    Lets take a Top 10 Welterweight, who fights at 185 sometimes and match him up against a fighter who has fought at Heavyweight and Light Heavy in his last two fights.

    Even if I imagine that they are the same weight when they fight, Mousasi would smash him. Lets see how Shields handles Miller before we go this far.
