"There was some pressure coming into the fight because it was my first fight in the US, but I trained hard for it and I was very comfortable and confident in the ring. I wanted to fight stand-up with him but I knew he would go for the clinch. I didn't want to give him any advantage so I knew when I could take him down, I would, [and] I had the chance so I took it. After 1-2 rights I felt he was a little bit dizzy, so I gave him some more -- for better results."
Newly crowned Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi adds another belt to his collection via Sho Sports after a complete and utter dismantling of Renato Sobral at the August 15 'Carano vs. Cyborg' event in San Jose. "The Dreamcatcher," who also held the DREAM middleweight title and Grand Prix championship, now pushes his record to 26-2-1 after winning his thirteenth straight fight. Mousasi will next fight Sokoudjou in the Super Hulk Tournament at DREAM 12 and is definitely a force to be reckoned with at light heavyweight -- but is there anyone in the Strikeforce 205-pound division that can give him a run for his money?
