Starting out strong Mousasi



Yeah I ran both 3 times out of sheer curiosity.. Vitor and Gegard both won 2/3 matches. In real life, I would fucking love to see both of these matches, especially Gegard/Glover. The tried and true kickboxing veteran against the up and coming rock-em sock-em boxer.



Glover/Gegard would be amazing



Hitmonlee vs Hitmonchan

That Jones match was hilarious! Now the Gegard vs Glover fight I think was skewed...I would pick Glover by UD or late GNP.
