Mousasi and Belfort were scheduled to fight at 205 before Affliction collapsed. This is a dreamfight for me, especially at 185lbs it'd make one hell of a contender.

da Vinci 81 - is gegard going to MW?

He's been teasing about it, so if he were given such a fight I'm sure that he would.

Warrenpeace - Mousasi takes this. And he takes it looking bored as shit the entire time.

My answer as well.

Gegard is a problematic matchup for Vitor.

How many more top contenders do you guys want Vitor to KO before giving him another title shot? Should've gotten the title shot after dominating Bisping. No question he should get it after beating the Strikeforce MW champ.

Just like Anthony Johnson, Bisping, and Rockhold were going to?

Mousasi could have been the mw chap in strike force at will. Phone Post

No no no... Let Mousasi stay at LHW, I want to see Jacare and Belfort get a few more good fights before being fed to him.

Vitor has the most impressive record of just about anyone. Look at his losses. Jones, Anderson, Chuck, Hendo, Overeem, Couture, Sakuraba, and Tito. Dude is a fucking badass. even before the TRT

Tough competition there, when you cannot beat the Keith Jardines of the world.

Yep.

And for me...take the Tito loss away.

I have never seen the Liddell fight.

Mousasi couldn't even finish that can. He's good, don't get me wrong. Didn't he have a draw with fucking keith jardine? Come on now... He might could jab Vitor for 5 rounds, but that gives Vitor 25 minutes to KO him. He's only needs one kick/punch to end the fight. I don't see anyone beating Vitor unless they have the gold around their waste. But sure, waste another top contender by feeding him to Vitor.

Call me a nuthugger, I don't care. I like Vitor, and think he's one bad motherfucker who loves Jesus.

Vitor vs Hendo/Rashad winner. If he really wants Jones again he needs to fight in his division. Phone Post

Oddly enough I think vitor has a better shot vs. Sanderson than Jones.

I'm not going to act as if Tim Kennedy, Jacare, Cung Le and Rockhold would of made it that easy, he never even fought the good Light Heavyweights in Strikforce Feijao, Hendo...He fought Mo but yeah you get my point even if he deserved to beat Mo it was by no means an impressive victory.

While I respect Mousasi a lot, am aware of what he did in K-1 as a kickboxer, in The Nederlands as an amateur boxer, and all of his grappling credentials...This is mixed martial arts and the best guy he's faced in his last 7 fights was OSP who he fought to a close 29-28 decision and again even if he deserved the win over Jardine it wasn't impressive.

The Mousasi hype is a little much...coming from a guy who would not be surprised if he systematically broke down Belfort, the people who were saying he outstruck Kytoro therefore Gustafsson has no chance were just stupid jackasses. K-1, Pro Boxers, Thai Champions are overrated when it comes to purely striking in MMA.

Still, Vitor vs Mousasi would be great.

I do agree on that. He's tearing through middleweights and wants to fight Jones again? I think he has a better chance against jones, just because Silva WILL put you out with one shot of you leave the opening, where as Jones will try to grind and such.
Not sure if Vitor will for sure beat Jones or Anderson, but by the looks of it, he'd give either guy one hell of a rematch. I don't like the fighting in one weight class, jumping up or down for a title shot. If you want the LHW belt, start fighting LHW.
