Remember when a lot of fans and media felt that the middleweight division was the weakest in MMA? Well the infusion of Strikeforce talent into the UFC's 185-pound weight class has greatly improved the depth of the division and two of the men currently inhabiting the top ten are Gegard Mousasi and Tim Kennedy. Mousasi fought at 205 in Strikeforce so their paths never crossed in SF, but they might in the near future.
So it appears @mousasi_mma is ranked #7 at middleweight now... right behind me.... Curious...— Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA) June 2, 2014
I would like to point out that @mousasi_mma has an inconsistent chest hair pattern.— Tim Kennedy (@TimKennedyMMA) June 2, 2014
Then things got a little odd...
@TimKennedyMMA LOL u goofy look alike macdonald clown, normally I dont fight midgets but for u I make an exception.— Gegard Mousasi (@mousasi_mma) June 4, 2014
I'll admit that it's a little more original than the base alpha insults that usually get thrown around. But cartoon characters? Clowns? What's next, baby toys? Calling each other fathead?
Either way, this is a bout I'd really like to see and I don't care how they build it. I hope the UFC books it as a five-rounder in the near future.
