    Very difficult for him as of now because most of us are bias towards UFC fighters.
    His loses to Hall, Jacare and Machida, when in his prime, will always be an argument for people to dismiss his achievements.
    A 45-6 record is very impressive, if you take in consideration the opponents he fought and the longevity of his career.
    At 33 years old, I say he has 3 more solid years of competing at the highest levels.
    Just keep winning is the best he can do for his legacy at the moment.
    Defending his belt against Carvalho and Machida would be a first.
    I think his main goal should be a super fight with Ryan Bader. He already fought at 205lbs in the past.
    Bader vs Mousasi would be the biggest fight in Bellator history, definitely the type of fight to headline a UFC PPV.
    MW Champ vs LHW/HW champ, it would be historical and if Mousasi wins, that would sky rocket his stock.

    You're seriously suggesting if he beats Anderson's MW record in Bellator he's better? Are you high as fuck?

    That really WAS a fluke. That kick wasn't even intended for Mousasi's head. It was literally a freak accident that would never happen again.

    I can't really think of any other fight I think was a fluke. But there's no doubt that was.

    If he lands his takedowns. On the feet I don't think so.

    What about knocked out by Matt Serra or submitted by Ryo Chonan?

    You know who failed drug tests and looked completely different after beating Mousasi?

    Machida and jacare (just saying)

    You know who got completely smashed in the rematch, Hall (just saying)

    Come back to the UFC and knock off Romero, Whittaker, Adesanya and Gastelum consecutively. Then he's in the conversation

    Hes already there . It just a matter of what tier he gets to.Hes in prime now and has held belt EVERYWHERE except UFC which isn't his fault as he's probably first elite fighter in prime to exit with 5 fight stoppage streak. .. also 12-3 under zuffa umbrella and 46-6 at age 33 with no worse for wear. That's a paradox right there which puts him as a goat already. We now, again, see where on the ladder he can get.

    There’s nothing he can do in bellator to get him there. The UFC MW roster is loaded. To dominate that current division would put him at the top.

    Moose fans are the most delusional of all.

    He’s a mid tier fighter. He’s likeable but not an elite guy at all and people are saying he’s close to GOAT status or that he would smash any MW. Lol...

    If too many fans require it to happen in the UFC...then nothing he can do.

    He prefers money and freedom.
    He’s a true American.

    To hold the #1 spot longer than Anderson, go back to to the UFC and get the belt. Based on how well he's talked up, he should have had it by now, right? Maybe goes easy on the money talks with the UFC until he can renegotiate his contract as a champ. It seems like a cake walk the way his fans talk.

    This is not bad. It would put him in the conversation.
