For Mousasi, A Loss To Hendo Means Irrelevancy

Gegard MOusasi

“It’s very big. After a loss, you have to pick yourself up again and it’s difficult. I think a win over Henderson is going to put me a little bit higher and give me a chance against someone in the top five. It’s a very important fight. I win and I get to face the other top guys and I have the chance to be a contender again. Otherwise, I’m just going to go out of the top ten. I’m not relevant anymore. It’s a do or die fight.”

“I think this fight, I’m just going to go and leave it all out there. I’ve done everything I should have done this time. I’m in great shape. I know I’ve done everything I should have done in training. I know I can push hard for three rounds. I’m going to go and leave it all out there. I’m very confident I can win this fight. It all comes down to doing the right thing with the weight cut and the fight, but there’s no way I see myself losing this fight.”

During a recent chat with FOX Sports, Gegard Mousasi talked about his upcoming UFC on FOX 14 bout against MMA Legend Dan Henderson.
