Honestly it was just a pick I made because I felt Mousasi is hit or miss, he had no been fighting anyone in Bellator that was even on his level. I took a chance, I don't consider it a great pick, it's an upset but Mousasi has had a long career, I thought maybe he would come in over confident. 

A bit of luck and just took a chance.

Dog**** card for results good for Johnny knew he was good just moose too far gone, more mile than years in my opinion.
He fought heavy, light heavy some good wins and middle great wins even in UFC if you think hes not one of the best middles ever your just stupid no argument.
The point I see made about him showing up is totally true he seems a moody guy and not reliable for sure.
He should just retire enjoy the life he built for himself, reminds me of Rory Mcdonald does not seem to have the fire they once did.
