Mousasi would end this early, just hope he dosn't over look Jardine and gives Jardine a chance.

Why would you compare King Mo vs Gegard with Jardine? They're two entirely different fighters and styles. Gegard is the clear favourite here and its very likely this bout will remain on its feet with Jardine on the end of another TKO.
As for Gegard not fighting any live opponents seriously WTF are you talking about?

Good fight for Mousasi - a bigger name than Kyle who on current form is a far worse fighter. Part of me would love to see The Dean of Mean cause the upset but it would be a HUGE one.

Oh, okay. The Jardine that will be coming in next week on eight days notice will definitely be the same one that had a full training camp going into the Rampage fight.

He's doing this for money.

That means that I'm on the map.

Your point seems to be that Jardine did well against Rampage. My point is that this will not be the same Jardine that fought Rampage.

Unless you are saying that Jardine will have no problem surviving one good shot against Mousasi, because Rampage didn't knock him out. That's really dumb, though, so I hope you don't mean that.

Sad to see Jardine back in the boots of a journeyman. Really enjoyed his past fights, entertaining random fighter.

Jardine needs better management to maintain the mystique of a fighter. He is a good fighter but needs the odd rebuild fight, good style matchup etc Make the record look pretty and everyone loves a hot run in MMA. He needs to string some wins together. I think Mousasi is too good for him but Jardine has gone tooth and nail with the best.

Speaking via BleacherReport.com, Mousasi said:
Quote:
“This kind of fight is where I have the most to lose because people expect me to win, especially since he’s taking the fight on such short notice. This is the type of fight that I can’t win a lot, because if I win they’ll say that, ‘well, you won over somebody that wasn’t prepared,’ and if I lose, it’s (to) somebody that got kicked out of the UFC. It’s a difficult situation and there’s not much I can gain.”

“Not to disrespect Jardine, but say I would fight Jon Jones; if I would lose people still would say, ‘Jon Jones is the God and he won and he’s the pound-for-pound (best).’ If I would lose to Keith Jardine people would say ‘he’s (Mousasi) overrated.’ There’s more to lose, that’s what I mean. It’s not like I don’t have respect for Keith Jardine.”

“If I win, but put on a lazy performance, maybe then they don’t consider I’m worthy of a title shot. It all depends on how I perform and what Scott Coker decides and if the fans wanted to see that fight. I just can do my best and we go from there, but of course I would love to fight for the title.”

“If I don’t win this fight, I don’t know when the next fight is going to be, because I won’t get a title shot and it’s going to take even longer before I get back to action. So, it’s important to win this fight.”

Wow.

Mousasi-Kyle was going to be a slugfest with a probable KO ending either way.

Mousasi-Jardine will be a slugfest with an almost certain KO ending either way.

Jardine and Mousasi both like to bang. Only Jardine might spring an upset and go for the takedowns. I expect Mousasi to bang and look exciting.

It actually looks like Jardine is coming off of 2 wins against strong submission fighters.

This fight is short notice but I think that would only affect Jardines strategy. He fought a month ago, 3 months before that and 3 months before that. He must be in fight shape. Plus his last fight ended inside the first.
