  1. I have always liked this guy. Confidence and humility don't have to be mutually exclusive. It's a fine line and Mousasi is one of the few that can walk it. If you are not a fan of his then in my opinion you are one of those people who need the story lines and canned drama to get interested. It's not your fault that you were raised on pro wrestling. Do yourself a favor and delve into his past fights. The skillset and ability to find a way to get it done are as good as anyone who has ever done it. The U.S. is a tough place for people of middle eastern nationality to find acceptance and respect. For the haters out there, think Iron Sheik. Haha.

  2. Man, I like Gegard! He is smart, funny, repectful and p4p one of the best fighters ever! Look at his amazing record. Would love to see him beat Lovato, Machida and Bader and than return to the UFC. He is an absolute legend!

  3. He has been so underrated for years. Look at his fight record —- the amount of fights he has is insane + he is one of the few guys that has fought in just about every fight organization going (other than maybe a few that have started up in the last few years). But he's definitely legit.

  4. Rory and Mousasi are very good fighters and Sportsmann. I like this guys and his Fightstill and Fight Charakter.Its difficult to say how wins, I like Moussasi more because he is a legend and wins a lot of big figths very good Person and human. For me is Mousasi 10 % in front and he wins this big fight.

  5. im sure Karyn wants to get some from gegard and my sense tell me she has already got her wish lol it is so clear… like Karyn is the one throwing all the "sex" jokes.. i totally relate to Gegard because he was born in Iran in a Armenian family, Im perisan too and his humour and sense of joking is very easy for me to feel what the guy says… super under-rated fighter, one of the best to ever to do it but keeps it real, always says he does not even wanna be the best.

  6. Hey Karyn, I've been meaning to ask I see you always interviewing the fighters but I was wondering If you had any interest in interviewing the UFC referees like Herb Dean… I Think it would be interesting to get there inside view on the fighters, just a thought.

  7. i used to doubt this guy big time but fight after fight he always stays cool and calm with extremely tactical skill and never wasting energy or a good shot. One of my favorite fighters right now. This gonna be a great fight i cant wait.

  8. Gegard is a amazing fighter, I just wish he would take his losses like a man, instead of complaining constantly, cheater this greasing that …. blah blah blah … you lost… you're still a amazing fighter, and in my opinion, your the best at 185 right now … positivity breeds more positivity, negativity breeds more negativity…

  9. Gegard is the only fighter of his calibre that truly doesn't care how good he is in the annals of history which is crazy considering he has possibly the most impressive record in MMA history (excluding the undefeated records) fighting even heavyweights and is one of best fighters ever in my opinion and right now the n1 middleweight in the world

  10. Gegard is the most underrated fighter in MMA. I would love to see him back in the UFC. Gegard vs Costa, Israel, Kelvin and Whitaker are all very good stylistic matchups for Gegard. I believe Gegard would beat Robert with his jab, control distance and win a comfortable decision.
