Former Strikeforce champion Gegard Mousasi was recentl interviewed by the Brazilian language site Tatame, and discussed his desire to fight Vitor Belfort. Specifically, Mousasi wants Belfort on Dec 28, with the winner getting a shot at the Weidman vs. Silva rematch.

"The reality is this - Silva vs Weidman II is going to have to happen first on December 28th," said Mousasi. "Vitor has to wait for a title shot no matter what.  I know the UFC wants to see this fight happen as they offered it to me for UFC Belo Horizonte in September.  I could not take the fight because I just had surgery.  So, it is inevitable that Vitor and I are going to have to meet first to determine who the #1 contender is.  So my opinion is that we should also fight on December 28th on the same card as Anderson v. Weidman II to determine the #1 contender spot for the UFC middleweigh title."

"It is as simple as this.  Vitor and I were supposed to fight in the past for both Affliction and now the UFC.  Vitor knows that it is inevitable that we are going to have to meet in the Octagon".

Mousasi is fucking delusional. What has he ever done to even be considered for a number one contender match?

Iove the way he fights but cannot stand the shit that spews from his mouth. Phone Post 3.0

Vitor vs Mousasi is an awesome fight, but Vitor has everything to lose and nothing to gain.

Stay the fuck away from this matchup.

Mousasi looked pretty bad in his last fight though tbh. I could see it going either way, depends which Mousasi turns up.

Vitor was the best guy that was willing to step in on short notice that Jones agreed to fight (We all know he said no to Sonnen) and the anderson shot was for him knocking out guys in 3 straight fights in Affliction and 103 as well as winning 2 Cage Rage fights before that

I'm not a belfort fan and he didnt deserve the jones fight but someone had to step up and he did.

There weren't really any contenders for silva at the time and belfort just destroyed lindland and franklin so i don't have a problem with him getting the shot then.

Munoz, okami, jacare, rockhold, and bisping are all above mousasi on the 185 ladder. I'd like to see mousasi beat at least a top ten middle weight before we start looking at giving him a contender fight.

And yes I know he beat jacare but that was from a lucky ass upkick while jacare was having his way. Phone Post 3.0

This would be a great fight. I was under the impression constantin philippou was campaigning for the same fight. If Silva beats Weidman do they have a 3rd or give it to one of these guys? MW division is very exciting right now. So many guys in the mix. Phone Post 3.0

You mean the fight where his doctor told him not to fight and get surgery for his knee instead? But he keep quite about it so the card could still have a main event and took a fight where he had nothing to gain and everything to loose?

I'd really enjoy that fight and think that it would be a good way to keep the contenders active until Silva/Weidman have their rematch.
