Oh like how Bisping had a win over a former champion and MW GOAT, Anderson Silva. Where was Moose? Oh yea with a decision win over Thales Leites and before that a knockout loss by Uriah Hall :lol: :lol:


so, fun fact about this shitty point is that Bisping barely squeezed out a SD over Thales rin the fight before before the UFC pulled Mousasi off the Bisping vs Mousaso fight night card and replaced him with Anderson Silva.. who Bisping barely beat despite Silva being way-the-fuck-past-his-prime.

A way-the-fuck-past-his-prime Silva will sell far more than a I-just-got-knocked-the-fuck-out-by-a-gatekeeper Moose in London. What did you think was going to happen?

Well Bisping is the champion. He did knockout Rockhold, a former champion. So yea, pretty sure Bisping is ranked a bit higher, regardless of what your personal bias is. He could of also proved how much better he was than Rockhold, but he chose not to.[/color]


:lol: :lol:

:lol: :lol: :lol:

So why is Moose crying from the sidelines?


he isn't. he got a better deal and took it. he wasn't even saying anything bad about the UFC. you shouldn't be this upset

Why are you fighting facts? Why are you crying so much for Moose?

Point is, Moose was literally the closest he's ever been to a UFC title but he chose not to take it.


he's been "close" to a UFC title this entire time but hasn't been offered shit. he got replaced in his title eliminator against Bisping for Anderson Silva ffs. it would be a risk to try and wait around in hopes that the UFC would eventually give him one when his prior treatment - despite being a main or co-main in damn near every fight he's in - only suggests they're going to try and pay him shit and not put him in the spotlight.

Being "close" to a UFC title is not losing to Machida, tapping to Jacare, and getting knocked out to Uriah :lol: :lol:
Whittaker and Yoel were on far more impressive win streaks, so when was Moose ever "close"? You're argument makes no sense.


His first attempt, one fight in, then Machida beats him to a decision. Not entirely bad, Machida is an awkward fighter and Moose can easily recover.

Second attempt, beats one fighter then loses to Jacare by submission. Moose can still recover with a nice win streak after. Two is forgivable.

3rd attempt, beats two fighters then gets knocked out by barely a gatekeeper. Absolutely embarrassing loss. Will knock him back a few pegs. Regardless it was something the UFC wanted him to recover from and get a nice win streak going.


"who cares what happens 10 years ago" -the guy who uses losses from 2014 prior to Moose's current 5 fight winstreak to discredit him. quality poster 10/10

Moose's fights from THREE years ago is far more relevant than fights from TEN years ago. Good job nit-picking arguments and taking things out context. best poster 12/10

4th attempt, beats 4 fighters then finally gets a high profile fights and passes it with flying colors. Then what happens? He leaves. He leaves when he was literally within reach of a title. What has Moose done prior to show that he should of had a title shot over Whittaker or Yoel?


the case for Whittaker is solid after he beat yoel. prior to that, his record includes wins over Souza - good - and then the folllowing:

Derek Brunson, Rafael Natal, Uriah Hall, Brad Tavares, "Clint Hester." are any of those guys even top 10? and if they ever were, for any reasonable amount of time (and was that ranking justified or just more UFC gonna UFC). keep in mind that while you're shitting on Mousasi for losing to Machida and Souza, Whittaker was - AT THE SAME TIME - losing to Court McGee and Stephen Thompson.

Whittaker was on a 8 fight win streak since 2014. When Moose got choked out by Jacare, and even before he got knocked out by Uriah. His destruction over Jacare was also far more impressive than Moose's close 1st and then controversial knockout over Weidman. There is no comparison. Whittaker's run was far more impressive.

Moose killed his own hype. He could have done so much more in the UFC but he chose not too. Could of made it clear where he was in the top 5 but he chose not to. Now all people can do is just speculate and over hype him like always instead of just actually establishing where he was. Moose will always be that fighter.


his hype isn't dead? he's a proven fighter and anyone that doesn't go out of their way to try and make him look otherwise doesn't need to speculate at all. yeah, there's fights in the UFC i'd like to see him in but there's nothing suggesting that the UFC was going to put in a good effort to make them happen. the move makes sense. it's not permanent. quit being a little bitch about it.

His hype of ever being a UFC champion. He has had plenty of chances to recover and get a nice streak going. He has been consistent with dropping the ball at almost every critical time during his UFC run. Stop making excuses for him. He's a consistent ball dropper.

and why are you using bright yellow font.

Bisping fights once a year (as champ) and his next fight is GSP.

Anyone who thinks Moose, who has a history of getting shafted, was anywhere NEAR a title shot has been huffing too much dustoff...

Time to play over under

Over-Under 3 interim title defenses by Whittaker before Bisping defends "his title"

Over-Under 2 rounds it takes Bisping to finish Shonie Carter and David Terrell after he beats GSP?

Apparently some people here still held on to the hype-backlash that Mousasi faced back when he was in DREAM and let it fester for years until this week. :lol:

Seriously, i dont get it. I was one of the people who thought he was overrated back in the day he was beating OSP and Mike Kyle, but I feel like now its different.

It will resurface if he loses in Bellator, but I think that would just show how good Bellator MW's are or Bellator fighters in general, not how much Mousasi is over-hyped.

Mousasi can't even get a title shot at bellator lol he has to fight schlemenko first. Poor guy can't catch a break.

On paper it seems like a risky fuckin fight against a hard hitting Russian vet. Dude has knocked a lot of guys out. On the other hand the only guy I've ever heard of on his win list is Kendall grove lol

I don't get why they didn't just give him the champ, unless he's injured right now. Nvm he's fighting someone else already.

i understand bellator not giving the higher profile UFC guys instant title shots tbh. that would be them conceding to potential new fans that "yeah, the ufc is better and their guys get to skip our inferior line"

Tito at 40 can still ragdoll 'The Mous', around. Only way for Mousasi to beat Tito, is through a slick submission, from the bottom, out of his ass.
