This is a damn good fight. This matchup never even occurred to me when Mousasi signed. A great #1 contender fight.

Not sure why people are acting like this is going to be a great fight. Mousasi will take this to the ground and make very quick and easy work of Shlemenko.

interesting

Cause Storm said he would only fight Mousasi if it was for the title. Great fight nonetheless. And i'm hearing Dantas/Caldwell is the co-main

Mousasi is requesting that Schlemenko be PED tested for their upcoming fight. 

http://mmajunkie.com/2017/09/gegard-mousasi-requested-alexander-shlemenko-drug-tested-bellator-185


“You know there’s a guy who’s deliberately cheating,” he said. “I don’t want to have a guy who’s physically or mentally twice as strong who normally wouldn’t be that. I want to fight a clean fight. In a clean fight, I’m not worried. I know what I can do."


“When the sport is clean, I’m one of the best fighters. We’ve seen a lot of people who didn’t perform after USADA. All I’m asking is a fair opponent.”


It's a fair enough request... though if rampant PED use was a huge concern of his maybe he shouldn't have gone with an org that leaves 100% of the testing to the commissions which makes cycling extremely easy. He left the UFC which has USADA which has done 2096 random drug tests on 577 different fighters in the UFC this year alone. Sure he gets a higher paycheck but he is going to face the reality that much of his competition could very well be on PEDs.

If he wanted to fight clean opponents...leaving USADA definitely isn't the choice LMFAO. What a goof. Besides, its just some Meldonium...what's the big deal ;)

I highly doubt people think about staying in a promotion that treats them like **** because that promotion works with USADA. Mousasi is asking Shlemenko get tested, and Bellator will test Shlemenko. **** USADA.

If you want consistent drug testing and a better chance at a level playing field then yes you go with the org that uses USADA and random testing. If you want the higher paday then he has to accept the fact that Bellator doesn't test their fighters. I doubt Bellator will test Shlemenko, the commission might on fight night but I doubt Bellator pays to have an independent agency show up and test Shlemenko tomorrow or even next week.

I wouldn't doubt if Bellator did something like that. Mousasi has the pull. And - I could be wrong here - but I believe I have seen something about drug testing being part of the agreement for Mousasi to take this fight. I'm not sure. And if I find where (I think) I saw that I'll edit the link in.

With their records combined they almost have as many fights as Jeremy Horn or Dan Severn
