Previously this fight was set to take place last January, but due to injury, Mousasi was forced to withdraw from the bout. Now, with the event rescheduled to take place in the United Kingdom, Mousasi’s record in Europe speaks for itself. Mousasi has never lost a bout within Europe giving the Dutchman even more confidence going into his matchup with Lovato.
With 51 MMA fights to his name, I was intrigued to find out how much longer we have to witness Mousasi fight in the cage.
“I don’t know, after three fights I will see, I have to win them then hopefully a big raise, a big raise means more fighting.”
Mousasi will have his hands full this weekend with the undefeated Lovato Jr, especially if the fight goes to ground. Lovato Jr has more Jujitsu medals than most people have had hot meals, however, don’t count out the ground game of Mousasi. Mousasi is an extremely intelligent fighter and has been faced with many adversities in the past proving countless times he is comfortable in all areas of the game against any fighter.
