    I'll be curious if there was any camp drama from Goose with the whole Lloyd Irvin drama. Cardio has always been an issue for Mousasi, so I'm thinking Goose is the favourite, but I think there's a good chance for Mousasi to take him out.
    Mousasi has fought guys across 3 divisions, MW, LHW, and HW. Although those HW weren't the best of the class, he has dealt with size issue quite well.

    I've bought into Mousasi for years as well, and I'm glad he will get some recognition during his UFC tenure. His striking is top notch, BJJ game is on point. The more he works on his TDD and his Td (as in the OSP fight), he could be the complete fighter that GSP is. And speaking of which, I remember Mousasi doing a training stint at Tri-Star with GSP before. I hope to see both guys work together more often, as it can expand the skillset of both.

    I agree with you, but Goose is a fucking rangy fighter and I could see Mousasi having trouble getting his strikes off, throughout the fight, I'm worried he may gas.

First rd KO Mousasi. His striking credentials and bottom game will make the difference.
    I would rather watch Mousasi fight Shogun.

    In any case I suppose it really doesn't matter who wins. Neither has the skills to deal with Jon Jones wrestling.

    Machida, Goose and Tex have a chance albeit a small one.

    I honestly can see this fight going either way but Gustafsson is probably going to use his range to out point Gegard and pull out a UD.

    mousasi is more skilled damn near everywhere except wrestling, but goose knows how to use his freakish stature and length. i'm leaning toward mousasi, but goose could play the right game and get the decision

    I'll take mousasi. Goose really disappointed me in the shogun fight. Goose only has a 76-77 inch reach, I've seen so many ppl say things like Jones wouldn't have a reach advantage over him when he clearly would.

    Goose could take a UD but if he gets into exchanges with mousasi I think mousasi could possibly put him out.

    Wonder if there's any drama coming out of Goose's training camp, since The Alliance is very closely associated with Team Lloyd Irvin.....

    They dont expect anything for me,They dont expect anything for me,
    People that do not expect anything from Mousasi, are people that have never watched him.
    Mousasi is a great great fighter, and I think that he can beat Goose.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
