    Sonnen could get him on his back because he has good TD's, but Moose could probably submit him via triangle.

    Too soon of a turn around for Moose and Sonnen needs to cut some serious weight. But aside from my blah blah....that would be another cool fight.

    Does every fighter need 4-6 months in between fights? Didn't see the fight but it didn't seem like Mousasi took any damage. If he wants the fight why not? He's already in shape just has to stay that way for 5 weeks.

    I can think of a thousand reasons, but mostly because Mousasi is a legit MW contender coming off an impressive win, while Sonnen has been getting his ass handed to him in all of his recent fights and hasn't fought at MW in years.

    But then again he has even less right to fight Vitor and that fight seems to be happening, so I guess anything's possible.

    Only Weidman or Vitor fans would love this fight.

    Mouse has more wins than Jones and Weidman have fights, combined... So no, he doesn't need 4-6 months. If Gegard is healthy he'll fight.

    Hell, he probably fights even when not healthy.

    Makes sense, Mousasi doesn't seem like the guy who wants to sit around for 2-3 months before he's booked on a fight card taking place 5 months later. If Chael needs an opponent, hook up Gegard .

    I would think that Rockhold or Jacare would likely get the matchup before Mousasi would since he just fought and they haven't fought in a few months each.

    Chael doesn't deserve Mousassi or Belfort.

    If Vitor doesn't get licensed they'll probably just pull him from the event alltogether.

    I wouldn't mind the fight happening, but it wouldn't be at 175.

    Belfort not at all, Mousasi isn't out of the question. Vitor's next fight should be for the belt or the very least a #1 contender fight.

    Gegard is probably 2-3 fights away, Sonnen would be a marketable opponent for him and it wasn't that long ago Chael tapped Shogun in the first round.

    I thought Sonnen was getting a title shot against Cain next for the HW strap if he loses or if he wins he fights Dillashaw for the Bantomweight strap in a special unsanctioned catch weight exhibition match (but only if Wanderlei agrees to drug testing). Sonnen deserves it because of his high level of proficiency at real estate fraud in my opinion. Ultimate fighting is the realest sport around.

    Horrible fight for Saucey. If it were 5 rounds, I'd say go for it but I'd stay away from non main events if I were him.

    It's not really that bad of a fight for him. Mousasi punishes people on top of him and Chael's active top game would get him swept or submitted.

    Someone with a top game like Kennedy and Weidman are the guys who're tough fights for him.

    Enough of this!! Mousasis last fights have been agianst two wrestlers and an illusive (running) karate dude. It's time for a stand up brawler now, let us see what the UFC is really made of.

    I agree, if Sonnen steps down, i would like Mousai to face trt-less Vitor...
