This past weekend at UFC Fight Night in Berlin, Gegard Mousasi (35-4-2) launched himself back into the middleweight division’s top 10 with a first round submission victory over Mark Munoz. Well known for his reserved nature, the former Dream and Strikeforce champion would be one of the last fighters expected to engage in ‘Twitter beef’, however the talkative Tim Kennedy may have almost lured him out.

Currently the #6 ranked contender at 185lbs, Kennedy (18-4) most recently defeated Michael Bisping by way of unanimous decision on April.16 to extend his current run of form to a 4-fight win streak. In contrast, Mousasi’s win over Munoz saw him return to winning ways and re-established his reputation following a slow start to his UFC career; ‘The Aremenian Assassin’ dominanted late replacement Ilir Latifi in a light-heavyweight contest last year on April.6, before dropping to middleweight where Lyoto Machida handed him a unanimous decision loss.
