The Co-Main event of UFC Fight Night 75 will feature Gegard Mousasi (37-5-2) will be facing off with TUF runner up Uriah Hall (11-5). Gegard is coming off two straight victories, one over Dan Henderson via TKO in round 1 at UFC Fight Night 14 and the other a decision win over Costas Philippou at UFC Fight Night 66.
Two highly impressive wins, but now Gegard is under the impression that he can’t be touched and believes full heartedly that he’ll never lose again. MMA Junkie interviewed the former Strikeforced Light Heavyweight Champion and here’s what he said:
“The Dreamcatcher” says his training camp for the middleweight bout with Hall was among the best of his career and feels that preparation will translate into one of his most complete performances to date.
“I’m in phenomenal shape,” Mousasi told MMAjunkie. “I think the training went so good that I fight heavyweights, I train with heavyweights (so) anyone in my division will be an easy fight now.”
“I can be much more aggressive with this opponent and much more going forward,” Mousasi said. “I don’t go into brawls. It’s going to be a good fight, and I’m just ready. Takedown, if it comes, it comes. I feel I’m better everywhere.
“I haven’t watched a lot of his fights. He’s a tough guy, but I feel like I’m much better than him. Besides that, I’m in phenomenal shape. I feel good. Everything is good. No one can defeat me the way I feel now.”
“Losing to ‘Jacare’ (Souza), I feel like it was one of the worst performances of myself; I changed a lot, but also I don’t see myself losing again,” Mousasi says. “That’s just the way I feel. I’m going to win from now on, and you’re going to see it.
“I feel like I’ve underperformed a lot. I had a lot of issues going on, but you always have things. Other than that, I feel very good making the title run.”
“(Fighting Bisping in London) would make sense,” Mousasi said. “He’s English, so fighting in England would be nice. Everyone wants to fight Bisping, so I don’t know. Maybe Vitor Belfort would be nice, too.”
His opponent, Hall is coming off a TKO victory over Oluwale Bamgbose in round 1 at UFC Fight Night 73.
