  1. The more I listen to Gegard Mousasi the more I believe he is a little cry baby. Lyoto was taking 7-Keto. That is a weight loss supplement. Sure it is banned but do not blame losing because he took a fucking WEIGHT LOSS PILL! I bet when Uriah Hall knocks his cry baby ass out again he will complain that Uriah Hall is on Nutrisystem! I recently started to respect Gegard as a fighter but listening to him talk he is another Tito Ortiz. Everytime he loses there is an excuse. Quit being such a faggot Gegard.

  2. I love his fights but I hate to say in same interview he talks "why we have ranking and these fighter (conor) can talk and get any fights" but isn't he said same thing when he was asked why Vitor – because vitor is big name and he wants vitor, spider in his resume as they are legends instead of saying they are higher in ranking as compare to him (before he fought Vitor), anyways waiting to see him fight Uriah on nov 19th and would love to see him fight for title one day 🙂

  4. I agree this is the only interview you need to see. Gegard feels comfortable with Karyn. Good interview. I think Gegard will weather the early storm, Vitor will fade and give up. Mousasi gets the TKO or RNC in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    • Gegard Mousasi, Damian Maia (Brazilian), and Khabib (Russian) speak english. I disagree with Gegard also; when he says it's because they're American. Conor McGregor got the UFC push before he ever stepped into a ring; and he isn't American.

      The answer lies with the UFC's core audience. Though it's still just as bullshit a reason, if you care to keep calling this a sport.

  6. GEGARD SAY THE TRUTH… UFC IS CIRCUS NOW,…WHY RANKING IF ONLY AMERICANS CAN BE CHAMPIONS..THAT IRISH CIRCUS ATTRACTION RUIN THE UFC…. NO MORE REAL FIGHTS AND REAL CHAMPIONS,…GEGARD IS VERY INTELIGENT AND HONEST GUY…..!!!!!!

  8. Indeed, everything he says sounds to me as logical. He is absolutely right. but maybe this will come because I am also from the Netherlands, and more a lover of the sport. While Americans also deal with the show.

  10. I really love your interviews, the fighters seem to really respect you and it makes them open up a bit more. Usually Gegard is a pretty reserved guy to say the least. Great work Karyn, just slayin the game!

    • hahaha yeah but the fact of the matter is people like you are a minority so fighters who shoot off their mouths and sells themselves are going to bring in the most fans and money! if all the fighters were like mousasi mma would be a dead sport ufc would not sell for 4.2 billion and mma would never have gotten into MSG!

    • +Ichinegro Negrosaki While I agree that MMA would be less popular I don't believe it "would be a dead sport". Also fighters shooting off their mouths is not what got MMA legalized in NY. That is not the work that Zuffa did toward getting it legalized.

    • +preachinshawn
      then please enlighten me as to how MMA got legalized in NY? Chris Weidman, Ronda Rousey and other MMA fighters were shooting off their mouths to get it legalized.
       The main selling point to getting it legalized was mma popularity and how much revenue it would bring in to ny which as you stated it would have been less popular without mouthy entertaining fighters like conor! look when mma finally gets legalized in ny? when conor is around as mma's biggest star! all these years without conor and mma was not legal in ny then as soon as conor comes along it gets legalized. and look who is headlining the first ufc fight in NY.

    • +Ichinegro Negrosaki From the little I have watched about Zuffa lobbying for legalization, it was the fighters speaking about the safety of the sport, and how it is hardly human cockfighting. When I said "shooting off their mouth" I was referring to the kind of things that come out of McGregor's mouth. There's a Zuffa brought good ambassadors for the sport when speaking before politicians.

    • ur an idiot…eddie deserved that shot because he beat number one guy and previous champion anthony pettis and before that he beat gilbert melendez-the strikeforce champ for a long time! his cowboy loss was before the title shot idiot! also the fact that he ko RDA proves he deserved the title shot you moron!
