Video: Gegard Mousasi Practices his Stand-Up Comedy for UFC Rotterdam

There are many different sides to Gegard Mousasi. We can ponder about the nuances of his stoic demeanor much like the subtle Mona Lisa’s smile. The best of the best Mousasi however, are the times when he breaks out of his shell and we get to see new facets of the former Strikeforce champ. The turn into full Diaz was very entertaining, and now we have Mousasi going full Hedberg with these one-liners.

Earlier today, The Dreamcatcher tried to catch a few laughs while perfectly executing the deadpan technique, which actually made the jokes funny. I don’t know how this advertises the UFC Rotterdam event in the afternoon tomorrow (especially since Mousasi isn’t even fighting on it) but I’ll allow it.

The comedy tour didn’t stop there though. Right before the weigh-ins, Mousasi was able to land one more punchline completely off-the-cuff. Do we have another fighter setting up his post-fight career? Tell me you wouldn’t go see Gegard Mousasi do stand-up and I will call you a liar.
