Gegard Mousasi

Gegard Mousasi (born August 1, 1985) is a professional Armenian-Dutch mixed martial artist and kickboxer, fighting out of Team Jurojin in Leiden, Netherlands. On September 23, 2008 at DREAM.6 he became the first DREAM Middleweight Champion.

Biography

Gerard Mousasi was born to Armenian parents in Iran during the Iran-Iraq War. After the war, the family relocated to Leiden, Netherlands, where he finished grade school before even developing an interest in martial arts.

Early career

He started boxing at age 15 and twelve months later became the amateur boxing champion of the Netherlands. When he figured out that he wouldn't make it to the top in a country as small as Holland, he switched to kickboxing, and then eventually to mixed martial arts.

DREAM

In the first round of the DREAM's 2008 Middleweight Grand Prix at DREAM.2 he defeated Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Denis Kang by triangle choke. In the second round of the tournament, at DREAM.4, he won a decision victory over Dong Sik Yoon and advances to the final round which took place at DREAM.6. There he fought and submitted K-1 veteran Melvin Manhoef in the semi-finals before meeting up with submission specialist Ronaldo Souza in the final. Mousasi defeated Souza by an upkick after being taken down by the Brazilian, thus becoming the first DREAM Middleweight Champion and 2008 Middleweight Grand Prix tournament winner.
