Mousasi wants Belfort fight at middleweight


Gegard Mousasi debuted in the UFC with a less than impressive win over Iliar Latifi at the UFC on Fuel TV 9 in April. Since then he has expressed an interest to move back down to middleweight and is looking for a high profile fight:

"There's a big chance that I will go to middleweight," Mousasi revealed to "It all depends on the fights that I'm going to get. If I'm going to get a big name at middleweight, I'll probably go down.

"It's all about matchups. Let's say they're going to give me somebody like Vitor Belfort that's maybe a contender. That's the kind of fight I want."

Mousasi fought much of his early career in Japan at middleweight, and easily tipped the scales at 204 pounds without cutting weight for his UFC debut.

Vitor is a bulldozer at the moment. You gotta be serious about a fight with him right now.

No. Not yet. Let Vitor challenge Anderson again first and Gegard have a crack at the LHW championship. Only after both have maybe lost to the champs in the respective divisions, then this fight is good.

Thing is, from what I've seen, Vitor doesn't even want to fight Anderson again. He avoids the question when asked about a rematch.I have no idea who else he could fight though. Gegard is likely still out for some time after his ACL surgery. I cannot think of a logical next oppnonent for Vitor, him and Anderson together have pretty much cleaned the division out completely.

I agree vitor deserves a shot, but he would be on the shelf waiting for it. He should take a fight. Title fights always take longer to come around, so fuck it. Take the fight.
