Mousasi: IF Vitor does his job, I will gladly face him at 185, 195 or 205


Former Strikeforce and DREAM champion Gegard Mousasi was recently interviewed by MMAJunkie's John Morgan, and discussed his desire to fight Vitor Belfort, at middleweight, light heavyweight, or a catchweight of 195.

"I will make this easy on Vitor," Mousasi told "If he is going to continue to make conditions on who he will fight, I will face Vitor at a catchweight or at light heavyweight.

"Vitor is a fighter, and he is not getting any younger. He gets paid to fight. He should get in there and do his job with or without the belt. That is his job, and he should not be making such conditions because he is only losing time and opportunity.

"If Vitor will do his job, then I will gladly face him at 185 pounds, 195 pounds or 205 pounds. I know both the fans and the UFC want this fight badly. If Vitor does not want to fight, then give me any No. 1 contender in the middleweight division."

"I want to have a title shot, and whoever is in front of the line is the person I expect to challenge. I have been fighting for a very long time, and my professional record speaks for itself. I believe I deserve a title shot based on what I have accomplished. I have seen fighters that have done less and have received a title shot. So I feel that I am in the mix."

We don't know if Bones will destroy him until they actually fight. If the fight stayed upright, as Bones did against Rashad, then anything is possible. These are the kind of fights that I want to see, rematches get old.

How about he calls Vitor out when he's healthy again.

Vitor wants to use his highlight reel to get him a title shot. He ain't gonna fight Mousasi because a loss would eliminate him all together from another title fight. I'd love to see this fight and huge props to Gegard for calling out a guy like Belfort.
