I honestly see Gus taking this fight and solidifying his #1 contendership. Gegard is good, but even this "new" Gegard is not the same guy we saw a few years back. I think he should move back to MW and make a real run for the title.

I think it's a good match-up for Gegard, not sure why Gegard is getting a push at 205 but I think he wins this fight , or maybe Gus wants the fight.

Awesome fight

I'm not sure if this is the right move for Gegard the last thing you want is a loss in your first fight in the UFC.

I think Mousasi will get pushed as a contender because Jones has mostly cleared out the division already.

The grinders like Rashad, Phil Davis, Bader etc would probably beat Mousasi so I bet they try to avoid matching him up with guys like that.

I think Gegard and Gustaffson are both sort of overrated but Gegard has a real good shot to win.

Anyone think Gegard might drop to 185 if he gets beaten down at 205? He seems really small for 205 and probably doesn't want to cut the weight.

Gus takes this with his size.

Good fight. I think Gus will be too much for him though.

if Mousasi does what Shogun should have did and use LEG KICKS, then he'll slow down Alex foot movement and take his boxing from him..as Alex relies on his movement to set up his boxing and TD's..but Mousasi is a top kick boxer, and a better over all mma game then Alex..WAR Mousasi ur dues have been paid and its time!

Well I'm glad the UFC thinks highly enough of Gegard to throw him right in there with a top 10 fighter. That being said, I don't know if he's big enough to win this. Talented enough yes, but he's better suited at 185

I like this fight a lot and believe that Gustafsson's training with Phil Davis and his wrestling may help him get the "W" but Gegard is solid and if he can defeat a guy like Gus then it'll be hard to argue that he doesn't deserve the title shot.
