    I was happy King Mo one.

    It was kinda embarrassing Mousasi had no take down defense.

    i really thought mousasi would win that one, but hat's why they fight. mo isn't a pretender by any means. he still needs a lot of work, but he is talented as hell.

    i rewatched this fight, and why does mousasi seem so timid? it's like he didn't want to engage at all. was he THAT overpowered, or was it just a off night?

    I think he more off than being overpowered.

    not sure

    but I think he was too concerned about not getting taken down and it threw him off, I think that's part of it
