Gegard Mousasi Thinks He’s Fighting King Mo in April, Is Currently Training With GSP

(Props: truplya777)

As we learn in the above video interview from Aaron Tru, Strikeforce moneyweight contender Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal doesn’t really know who or when he’ll be fighting next, while Strikeforce light-heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi says he’ll probably be fighting King Mo in April. As soon as the news reaches Lawal, he should be thrilled, considering he wants that belt and already has Mousasi figured out. Strikeforce’s 4/17 event on CBS is also rumored to feature Fedor Emelianenko vs. Fabricio Werdum, and Jake Shields vs. Dan Henderson.

Speaking of the Armenian Assassin, Mousasi has accepted Firas Zahabi’s invitation for him to train with UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre. According to a report on Sherdog, Gegard and GSP have been working out together in Miami this week, helping St. Pierre get ready for his March 27th meeting with Dan Hardy. It’ll be the first time that Mousasi has been part of a training camp in the U.S.:

“I am nervous being away from my family and friends for two weeks and I don’t think of it like Georges is calling me for help,” Mousasi told Sherdog. “I think he is a great athlete that wants to train with different fighters to improve himself. To be honest, I’m curious about everything, curious how he does things and if I have to say something specific that would be how he puts everything together to be able to take down opponents with ease…I always train for my fights in Holland. This is just a learning experience…I will take what I learn and try to do it in Holland, but I don’t prepare for fights in other gyms. I always try to prepare for my fights in Holland.”

Aaron Tru's interviewing sucks balls. He looks like a penis and sounds partially retarded with a bit of nervousness.

I see King Mo losing his fight to Mousasi via DQ after he knocks him down and tries to spray him with rockstar energy drink

mousasi kinda sounds like he's never heard of GSP. he already takes down his opponenets with ease.. i think GSP is just gettin ready for the move up

Hyperbolic? Like that time chamber where they go to train in dragonball z? That's not fair. No wonder GSP is so much better than everyone else.

Ben mentioned it in an earlier post, but this training session is PPV caliber.

Also, i totally agree with ReX13.

Why am I scared of Mousasi, and he's no where around me?

I demand BreakMedia/Cagepotato send Ben to Miami with a video camera, this needs documentation....and someone awkwardly standing in front of the camera doing commentary.

Is it hyperbolic to say that Mousasi is getting the better training experience here? 'Cause it kinda feels like it.

GSP is a beast ... there is always a punchers chance (StPierre Vs Serra) but I doubt hardy will get that chance, It will probably go like this ...

Jab, Jab, spinning back kick, combination, takedown, elbow, elbow, elbow, rear naked.

GSP victorious backflip, arm raised ... not a mark on him.

this is great news for GSP, only going to make him stronger and better which seems almost impossible.

the person i really feel bad for here is Hardy. he literally is a dead man walking... rather than train he should just spend time with his loved ones saying goodbye.

GSP = best pound for pound at this time IMO
