A strong effort of a card considering the main event had to be changed so late. I don’t think Gegard Mousasi would have had the same success against Alexander Gustafsson though. Speaking of Mousasi, the reaction by the “fans” to his fight is EXACTLY why this site EXISTS…I cannot believe that so many people on social media were critical of his performance. The bottom line is that he as well as us did not know that much about Ilir Latifi, so I think Gegard fought the smart fight and STILL looked impressive. Ilir and Alexander are two totally different opponents, and Mousasi fought smart. Everyone who was critical of Mousasi for NOT finishing Latifi should step into the cage with the human fire hydrant Ilir Latifi. Bad Asses, all of you who criticized Mousasi from the safety and anonymity that the internet provides. The winner of the Sniper FW sponsored contest with a clean sweep going 6/6 was @Estarr. Congratulations, @Estarr will also earn 3 points in The Internet MMA BADASS Contest. Thank you to Sniper FW.
