Gegard Mousasi says he’s “definitely” intrigued by the possibility of a move to the UFC, but he also plans on getting his Strikeforce light heavyweight title back first.
“If you’re the Strikeforce champion, then you have a lot more possibilities,” Mousasi said on the Sherdog Radio Network’s “Beatdown” show. “I still have a contract with Strikeforce. It makes sense to be a champion there before something like fighting in the UFC can happen. But I don’t know. I’m just focusing on Strikeforce, and eventually it’s not my decision. I just need to keep winning my fights. That’s the most important thing.”
Mousasi said he has two fights left on his Strikeforce deal. He expects to compete on the Dec. 17 card headlined by Gilbert Melendez’s lightweight title defense against Jorge Masvidal, but he doesn’t know his opponent yet.
