Gegard Mousasi Calls Out Vitor Belfort For Clean Fight

Vitor Belfort

The UFC is planning to head to Japan later this year once again, and Gegard Mousasi wants on that card.

Mousasi, who topped Costas Philippou earlier this month to improve to 4-2 since joining the UFC, even has an opponent in mind.

Vitor Belfort.

Mousasi (37-5-2) is a former DREAM middleweight and light heavyweight champion. In fact, he was the last man to hold those titles. His last fight in Japan came in 2011 when he finished Hiroshi Izumi to defend his DREAM 205-pound belt.

Overall, Mousasi is 13-1 when fighting in Japan, including wins over Hector Lombard, Denis Kang, Mark Hunt and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza.

Belfort saw his three-fight win streak snapped by Chris Weidman for the UFC title recently. He previously competed for Pride in Japan.
