    Seriously, that fight would be much more compelling than Weidman or Bisping. Gegard would also be a much bigger test than either of them. And given Gegard's success at 185&205 I think you could justify giving him an immediate title shot.

    Make it happen Dana!

    I believe Mousasi said that he can't physically make 185 anymore. I'd love to see him fight Anderson at 205, but I'd love to see Anderson fight at 205 period.

    I want him to fight established and proven fighters. So unfortunately that disqualifies Chris Weidman for the time being. Sorry.

    I thought he recently came out and said he would cut to 185 to fight Anderson

    Let Mousasi have one fight against an established middleweight (no offense to Keith Johnson) before he challenges the greatest middleweight in the history of the sport.

    The nine fights is really the only thing people have to cling to, no matter how shitty of a reason it is.

    Mousasi has proven that he doesn't perform when he has the chance to really get his name out there.

    How is Mousasi more proven at MW? Because he beat Jacare back in 2008?


    If that's the case Luke Rockhold deserves a title shot like tomorrow.

    and who has Mousasi beat in MMA to say he's 'established'? Mark Hunt? Sobral? Jake O'Brien?????


    Munoz and Maia >>>> Mousasi's wins.

    I wouldn't be comfortable with this.

    He would need at least one good performance at 185, in the UFC, before I'd like to see him get a title shot.

    But I'd prefer to just see him keep going at 205 and get a fight with Jones at some point. Both divisions are pretty well cleaned out, might as well stay at the one he's obviously more comfortable at.

    I personally say forget all these guys, as threats to Silva, but he definitely ought to cut down. He won't be a force at LHW.

    is mousasi for sure coming to the ufc where they trying to agree on a contract or is it like there deal with fedor???

    and weidman is a beast and is for sure a top 5 mw who deserves a title shot but i think they should just give him some more tough fights for experience. he's still young and new to the sport. he is nowhere near his prime and he's going to need to be to fight anderson who doesnt like giving rematches.

    last fight I saw of Mousasi was against Lawal. Munoz wouldn't be much different except he'd finish it on the ground.

    if mousasi come to the ufc i hope he fight at mw
    with mousasi,rockhold, jacare and kennedy the mw div would be way stronger
    then you have weidman,lombard,okami,bisping and vitor
    it would be a very strong division

    Could be a great fight, I don't see him stylistically near as dangerous as Weidman, though.
