Although Gegard Mousasi has faced some of the most vicious strikers in the history of mixed martial arts, he believes that there is one competitor who possesses the most vicious hands in the sport. That competitor is Anderson Silva.
The veteran from the Netherlands disclosed that ONE Championship star Roberto Soldic is the only man who actually packs a punch that might end the world, despite the fact that they have only faced each other in the safe atmosphere of sparring sessions.
In an interview with talkSPORT, Mousasi stated that Soldic possesses incredible strength and that it is a terrifying sight to see him pummelled anyone who is competing inside the cage. Mousasi was referring to the fact that Soldic has been blessed with tremendous power.
Mousasi claimed that Soldic was the only opponent who had the potential to seriously harm him, despite the fact that he had previously competed against formidable opponents such as Dan Henderson, Mark Hunt, and Lyoto Machida.
“Roberto Soldic is the one who packs the most of a punch, in my opinion. “He won the double championship in KSW, and now he’s competing in ONE Championship,” Gegard Mousasi remarked about his opponent.
“Even though he took things slowly with me, when he hits you, you really feel it.” I’ve never seen anybody else quite like him; he’s a naturally skilled powerful puncher.
Since the legendary Mirko Cro Cop terrorised PRIDE in the early 2000s, Soldic is widely considered to be Croatia’s most lethal striker to ever emerge from the country. Coincidentally, during the time when Soldic was the reigning champion of two divisions in KSW, Cro Cop was Soldic’s friend and served as a mentor to him.
“Robocop” is a dominating striker who can put a stop to bouts as quickly as he desires. In his professional career, the rising star from Croatia has racked up 20 victories, with 17 of those triumphs coming by means of brutal knockouts.
Recently, the 28-year-old fighter made his debut in the United States with ONE Championship at ONE Fight Night 10: Johnson vs. Moraes III on Prime Video. Unfortunately for him, he was knocked out by Zebaztian Kadestam, who had previously held the title of ONE Welterweight World Champion.
