He posted on Twitter, asking what people thought of a move to Middleweight. All you people with Twitter, please go tell him that you think it's a great idea.

@Mousasi_mma  
Hey everybody, what you think about if I go to 185? I am curious what people think about this idea.

if he wants success against the best in the UFC then he'll move down to 185... Gustaffson would have destroyed him if the commission let him fight.

I would enjoy him fighting either of those guys. Maybe the loser of that fight too. Or maybe the winner or loser of Bisping vs Belcher. Phone Post

185 is historically a weak division.
205 is the tougher division, and he absolutely could be anyone in either division.
You're statement lacks mma logic. Phone Post

185 a weak division? Have you seen Maia's last two fights?

Wrong.

Alex would have gotten opened up by a jab and lost the fight due to eventual stoppage.

Alex really dodged a bullet for himself with that sly move.

He should move down, this is big leagues, he is too small for LHW. If he wants to make the most money and be a top fighter he should move down, good fights for him there with some solid stand up fighters.

Typically fighters don't contemplate moving down from a weightclass they are successful at or feel they will be successful at.

And Gus would have made a martyr out of him. Phone Post

I think he should definitely go back to 185. He has ALWAYS looked spectacular at Middleweight. Not so spectacular at Light Heavyweight. That's just my opinion though. Phone Post

Have you seen Marquardt's?

Yes, MW is weak.


Is martin kampmann still a top MW?

I think the better UFC LHW will be too big for him, MW seems like a better fit for him.
