Gegard Mousasi Looking To Fight Vitor Belfort At Middleweight

Gegard Mousasi Looking To Fight Vitor Belfort At Middleweight

Gegard Mousasi appears poised to return to 185 pounds – if the UFC sees fit.

Mousasi, a former Strikeforce champion, debuted inside the Octagon this past April at light heavyweight. However, he sees his next fight coming at middleweight, and against Vitor Belfort.

Mousasi (34-3-2) made it known after his most recent win that he would contemplate a return to 185 pounds. He suffered a knee injury in training and has been rehabbing it since.

Belfort (23-10) has posted two TKO victories to date already this year, having stopped Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold. He asked to challenge for the UFC middleweight title in his next fight, but nothing has been confirmed by the UFC.
