As Gegard Mousasi debates his status as middleweight or light heavyweight in the UFC, he likes the idea of a meeting with Vitor Belfort.
“It’s all about matchups,” said Mousasi to MMA Fighting. “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. To be honest, I believe middleweight will be much better for me.”
Following years in DREAM and Strikeforce, Mousasi had a successful debut against last minute replacement Ilir Latifi. After the April win, Mousasi underwent knee surgery.
Belfort has two middleweight wins this year, with the most recent being over Luke Rockhold.
