I think he'd be best at 185 as well. that being said, ive been a fan for years but somehow get the wasted talent like bj peen aura about him. it seems to me he survives on pure talent and doesn't train as hard as he could. he would be a beast at mw regardless.
That's a great fight but does Belfort want to weight that long? Does Moose as E care that he'll have to fight in Brasil?
Gegard Mousasi wants middleweight Vitor Belfort in next UFC fight
Gegard Mousasi wants middleweight Vitor Belfort in next UFC fight | News
"@danawhite @ufc I hoop I can fight in december against Belfort... I think my fans would love that fight," he wrote.
However, as MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps) recently reported, White hasn't counted out the possibility of Belfort, who's fresh off a violent knockout of former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold at UFC on FX 8, facing the winner of next month's UFC 162 headliner between middleweight champion Anderson Silva and challenger Chris Weidman.
"It would make sense for [Belfort to meet the winner of the Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman] fight, and that's not far away," White said. "Those two fight, and we see what happens. Or Vitor could fight again. I don't know. But he could fight either one of those guys."
If he brings that jab with him, he could be the biggest threat to Silva. Gegard is a hard out on his worst night and a motherfucker to fight on his best. But unlike most here I think he could even hang with the LHW fighters in the UFC. The thing about being underweight for a division is that it makes you fight smarter and more disciplined. Randy did it for years in the HW division and won a title. It's not unheard of, I don't think he should make his decision based on there being strong wrestlers in the LHW division. Hell if wrestling is your weakness then it can be exploited in just about any weight class.
Jacare/Mousasi II FTW!
Shit, give him the winner of Belcher/Bisping or Rockhold/Belfort.
Manager: Gegard Mousasi considering drop to 185, wants top 5 opponent - Bloody Elbow
Never sold on Mouse being a LHW fighter. But at MW? Dudes a beast.
This is really excellent news. I hope to hell he's serious about it, 185 is where he fits best.
so uhh... what are we waiting for?
no-brainer. He will fit right in and mix it up perfectly with the top of the middleweight division. I dont even want to start drooling at the match-up possibilities and the potential...
lets not get too carried away, hopefully he does this ASAP tho!
