Now he's fighting this bum, i give him absolutely no chance at winning this , im really butt hurt. Atleast we'll see a nice finish from Mousasi.

    He might win, we've seen crazier things hap...

    Actually... No... He has zero chances and will get royally owned.

    Mousasi by Hardcore humiliation..

    I'm sure Dana will say who he offered the fight to on the weekend and who declined, can't blame fighters for not stepping up in this situation, in Sweden, 4 days notice and against a legit contender


    Overeem - Shogun - Mousasi - Manuwa - Bisping - Manhoef - Watson - Daley - Hardy - B.Henderson - McGregor - Pickett

    Train by day, Joe Rogan Podcast by night, all day!

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    Because they would have to fly to Sweden and cut weight to fight an unknown fighter in his UFC debut on short notice. It's not worth it.

    They still have to fly to Sweden to fight an unkown fighter with zero preparation.

    Kong Watson is there doing a Q&A, that would of been a fun fight, he'd probably be around 205 now anyway

    Because it was rumored that Satish might take the fight and everybodys tail tucked in between their legs.

    you are saying that no LHW would benefit from a mousasi fight?

    if you mean they're all scared, you might have a point.
    No, they would not. The majority of UFC fans have no clue who Mousasi is. Why would you take a short notice fight with a dangerous striker nobody knows about? There's nothing to gain. You win, so what you beat a guy who has never fought in the UFC. You lose, you lost to a guy who had never fought in the UFC.

    You guys gotta chill and see what happens for 2 basic reasons:

    1. If this "bum" beats Mousasi, then does he become the real deal ? Or Mousasi is a can ?

    2. Mousasi gotta show smth before "known" guys decide to fight him. Why would a "somebody" flight to Sweeden to fight Mousasi at the moment ?

    3. A draw with Jardine doesnt make Mousasi look great either my friends. Let see what he got first !!! Shall we ?

    1. he isn't a bum, but a no-name who never fought anyone relevant. if he beats mousasi that proves he has something to show and mousasi is overrated.

    2. because mousasi is #10. anyone below that should be interrested, specially who's below #20

    3. see what he got against queen latifah? ffs...
    Topic 3 was more like ... A draw with Jardine ?? Let me ask u my friend .. what if Mousasi beats Latifa by UD ? How would u rate Mous ?

    Satish accepted, but Mousasi wouldn't fight him on one week's notice

    i have no idea! a win against a no-name means nothing by itself, unless queen latifah proves to be any good, so mousasi can face real competition and prove himself to be top 10 worth
    I guess UFC found a way to make some $$$ invest in Mousasi WORTH IT

    No joke, they should just cancel it LOL
  • zaksamezaksame Posts: 4,342Free
    Not that simple,the UFC has a budget ,they go by,so you can't just insert anyone.
    As you can see by the replacement,they went for a local guy and get him super cheap,so it is a win win for them but not for the fans outside of Sweden.
    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    The card is in Sweden. They needed a Swede to headline.

    Well I'm pretty sure no one wants to fly out to Sweden to fight on 4 days notice

    Unless it's Chael Sonnen. I guarantee he would fight him.

    mousasi has been fighting guys like this his whole career, i.e nobodies and has beens. Was hoping to see him properly tested. my guess is white still wanted a home crowd to have its own fighter. this fight isnt going to mean jack **** for mous he has everything to loose.

    wow why all the hate here for Mousasi? Are you all delusional UFC fanboys? Go and watch some footage. He's beaten legit fighters.

    Babalu Sobral
    Soukeidju
    Mark Hunt
    King Mo
    Denis Kang
    Hector Lombard

    for example. Legit black belt Judo
    National Boxing champion
    2xDream champion
    Strikeforce Champion

    This guy has more credentials than most of the top ten UFC LHW fighters and is a threat to all of them, including Jones. pull your **** heads in a quit embarrassing yourselves with this bs calling him a can.

    So what happens if the unknown fighter beats Mousasi?
    Does he go back to being unknown or does he get skyrocketed up the list>?

    Babalu sucks
    Sokoudjou sucks
    Submitting Hunt counts for nothing
    He lost to Mo
    Decent win, but turns out Lombard is overrated as hell anyway
    Edit: and Kang is so bad I almost forgot him

    Babalu & Sokoudjou in their prime were both huge threats, and this is when he beat them.
    It's the only way you beat Hunt dude WTF u on about
    Lombard is a boss
    Kang very nearly KO'd Spitts and is a MMA legend.

    Nothing for the rest?

    Haters gonna hate. I picked you for more than a blind UFC fanboy, everything ok?

    Actually, according to MMAJunkie Vitor Belfort was going to step up, so you're wrong.

    Props to Vitor, that would have been a sick fight, but I guess that would have affected FX 8 but still, at least theyd have time to fix that card (even though that card looks pretty good)

    He's smart. Doing the UFC favors goes a long way. He's probably secured a spot in the company for life.
    Like when demarcus johnson did the UFC a favor and they certainly repaid him.... by cutting his **** after loosing a fight he took on a weeks notice.,
