Meerschaert is a guy that I am kind of surprised has not gotten the big show opportunity yet.  He is one of the most experienced of our middleweight prospects and has fought against some solid competition.  Meerschaert is just a very solid fighter who is capable of winning fights against high level opposition.  In his 31-fight career, Meerschaert has only gone to a decision two times.  The Roufusport product is a real veteran in terms of experience.  Meerschaert is well rounded in the game.  The southpaw fighter, has solid striking as you might expect from a Duke Roufus trained fighter.  He mixes things up well.  He has a decent ground game that is even more dangerous when he is in the top position.  His wrestling is solid.  His takedowns are very good, especially against the cage.  He has also show that his submissions are good.  One of the issues with Gerald Meerschaert is that he has lost most of the fights against UFC caliber competition.  I do not believe it is an issue of ability as much as it is consistency. I believe that he needs to notch a couple signature wins against bigger named fighters to garner UFC or Bellator’s attention.  He is slated to face Chase Waldon for the RFA middleweight title on October 28th.  A win there would be a huge step in the right direction for Gerald.
