It’s not Anderson Silva in Brazil, but Gegard Mousasi has his next fight lined up.
Mousasi (38-6-2) scored a victory over Thales Leites earlier this year, improving to 3-1 over his last four. The lone loss came at the hands of Uriah Hall last year.
Brunson (15-3) has quietly put together a 6-1 Octagon mark, including four consecutive wins. During that stretch, he has finished Ed Herman, Sam Alvey and Roan Carneiro.
