Mousasi: I don’t see anyone at MW I can’t beat

Saturday, February 15, 2014

UFC middleweight Gegard Mousasi sat down with the ever tremendous Step Daniels for a wide-ranging interview, ahead of his main event fight Saturday night with Lyoto Machida.

“He's a smart fighter,” said Mousasi. “He lures you in, and even though he doesn't do a whole lot, what he does, he does well. I just have to be calm and not get irritated. The stand-up I'm not worried about. I will do just fine there, and on the ground also. I just have to fight smart.”

“At middleweight, I don't see anyone that I cannot beat. I feel comfortable fighting against any opponent. After this fight, I'd prefer to fight more of a stand up fighter, but first, I have to get through Machida.”

“I want to stay at 185 now that I'm in the UFC. I could see maybe taking a big fight at light heavy if they really needed me to, but that's the only way. I don't really want to be going up and down. I just want to focus on one division, and that's middleweight.”
