Gegard Mousasi wasn't going to impress anyone no matter the outcome of his fight against UFC newcomer Ilir Latifi in the UFC on Fuel TV 9 main event.
For that reason, Mousasi fought a smart fight by keeping Latifi on the end of his jab for three rounds. It wasn't the most fan-friendly main event in recent memory, but Mousasi did what he had to do to remain within striking distance of the elite UFC light heavyweights.
After the event, Mousasi revealed he had suffered a knee injury in training that will require surgery. Without an exact timetable for his return, the options for his next opponent are up in the air.
Nonetheless, let's take a look at who could be next for Mousasi and the rest of the UFC on Fuel TV 9 competitors.
