MMAOddsBreaker’s Frank Trigg speaks with UFC 200 middleweight Gegard Mousasi as he prepares for his upcoming preliminary card bout this Saturday night (July 9, 2016) against Thiago Santos at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The former Strikeforce champion had a chance in opponent, but he’s not too concerned about the different fighting style that he’ll be facing:
“I was training for a wrestler and now this is a guy I can take down… [Thiago Santos’] takedowns are not so great, but he goes for it. He kicks a lot. He’s a tough opponent, I believe, but I think my stand-up is so much better and it will overcome and he will fade over time.”
