    Mousasi's last scheduled fight was with Gustaffson in Sweden(April 6, 2013), but Gustafsson pulled out with an injury(cut in sparring last minute).

    Mousasi has mentioned moving down to Middleweight, but has last fought at LHW.

    I really love this fight. Why not give this one another shot?

    It feels like Mousasi never fought in the UFC. And it's kinda true. He fought Latifi

    You answered your own question/thread in the original post.

    Mousasi is moving to middleweight, this fight isn't happening

    Expressing an interest in Middleweight is not the same as a move there, and the UFC offering him a fight with the guy who arguably is the legitimate title holder at 205 in most people's minds, is enough to possibly keep him there.

    cannot see Gus being the Moose's 1st opponent if he moves up

    Gus was very close to winning the belt. Right now the UFC has a PPV cash cow with the JBJ vs Gus rematch.

    Mousasi is a legitimate threat to Gus and I believe he would win that fight. Then what?

    Gus loses all of his draw power for the title rematch. The UFC knows this. They won't let the money slip through their fingers.
