It’s like Gegard Mousasi watched his match against King Mo a thousand times and decided that he would never be taken down again. The Armenian Assassin lived up to his nickname in Berlin, and thrashed Mark Munoz with violence from all angles. It was one of the most well-rounded performances we’ve seen since perhaps Anderson Silva was in his prime. I don’t even know. Maybe Mark Munoz simply is out of his league in the top ten of the UFC middleweight division, or perhaps Mousasi was hell-bent on making someone pay after he lost to Machida. All we know is that he had an answer for everything Munoz threw at him, and it was brilliant.

Now the question is: do we get some old-school rematches from the Dream/Strikeforce/EA MMA era, or will we see the ex-Strikeforce LHW champ take on some former Strikeforce MW champs? I’d love to see Mousasi/Rockhold or Mousasi/Jacare 2. There really isn’t a bad fight to be made in that division right now…
