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 MMAjunkie.com. "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."

Read entire interview...

Gegard is a bad dude, but Vito is just on too much of a roll right now.

Speed, Power, Ability to finish the fight anywhere... Vitor has got this one won, IMO.

As much as I love Gegard, it's hard to say that he is even relevant these days... :-(

He's given Vitor literally every possible option to fight him.

But I'm still expecting excuses Phone Post 3.0

Both Gus and Vitor are ducking Moose, not his fault he had to fight Latifi with an injured knee which by the looked like a more serious injury than what Gus had.

wow.

Gegard sound ALMOST fired up.

Good to see him actually caring about something, a motivated Gegard is a bad night for anyone at 185/205.

Gegard was supposed to fight Gus who was a number one contender, so just 'cuz he got a crappy substitute in his first match in no way disqualifies him from another contender fight. Phone Post 3.0

Vitor fought Jon jones on short notice, who would destroy Mousasi. Phone Post 3.0
