Gegard Mousasi Wants Top 3 Contender At Middleweight, Mentions Belfort

Gegard Mousasi is heavily leaning towards a drop to 185 lbs, and wants big fights that gets him to a title shot as quick as possible.  Mousasi even mentioned last Saturday’s winner and top middleweight contender Vitor Belfort saying, “It’s all about matchups. Let’s say they’re going to give me somebody like Vitor Belfort that’s maybe a contender. That’s the kind of fight I want.”  The former Strikeforce champion is still rehabbing his knee but is apparently ahead of schedule and is eying a late 2013 comeback.  Mousasi is much more suitable for middleweight than he is a light heavyweight were he cuts nearly nothing.  We wish him a quick and successful recovery and very much look forward to him making an impact in the 185 lb division.  Shout out to MMA fighting for the quote.
