Kang’s opponent for DREAM.2 is out

Denis Kang returns the ring at DREAM.2 to fight some guy named Gegard Mousasi. I wish I’d known no one knew this, because Kang told us about it three weeks ago when we were filming him training for Fighters Only magazine. We had to have him repeat the name 5 times because you just sound like you’ve got a golf ball in your mouth when you say it. Mousasi. Now I just pronounce it like a combination of the words “Moose” and “Sassy”. Moose Sassy.

For a guy no one seems to know, he does seem to have a decent record … 20-2-1, with wins over guys like Cyborg Santos and our favorite Cuban expatriate Hector Lombard. Mind you, the rest of his resume is littered with European scrubs. So I don’t see Kang losing this fight any time soon.

    Dude is good. Hes an occasionnal striking coach for Fedor.

    Mousasi is very good, MUCH better than his reputation (even though it has improved lately)! This fight is comparable to Aoki vs. JZ in my mind. Two of the best fighters in the tournament meeting in the first round.

    This is Fedors striking coach. Basically if some one can make the MW class ans strike with Fedor which he does he has a chance agaionst Kang who got KO’d against Akiyama in his last bout is I am not mistaken.

  • Leland Roling

    Mousasi has dynamite in his hands, but the level of competition he has faced isn’t good compared to Kang. Kang isn’t chinny even though Akiyama flatlined him. It would have been a great matchup, too bad for Mousasi.

    The hell w/the fighter’s name, who’s the chick? Daddy likes.

  • kentyman

    Maybe she’s “Pousasi”.

  • MacDaddy

    Yeah Mousasi’s a top fighter…. in Calgary! He TKO’d Cyborg Santos, who while eminently TKO’able has the craziest staredown in MMA.

    Ha! I thought you were female. No offense, just never met a male “Joan”

    Mousasi is very good. Wouldn’t be surprised if he takes out Kang. It is really an even match-up.

    Kang could be in trouble if he doesn’t keep his chin covered. Kang should try to get this fight to the ground as soon as possible and stay away from Mousasi’s boomsticks.
