This would be a great great fight.
Mousasi has good chances of winning this one.
Try beating a top 10 middleweight first Mousasi.
His last opponent is lucky to be put in the top 30 at LHW.
Though, this is just an attempt at career advancement that noone can blame him for.
The middleweight division is much too top heavy at this point for Mousasi to think he deserves a shot at the title. With guys like Vitor, Costa, Jacare, Munoz, and Okami, all looking impressive lately, Gegard is nowhere near the front of the line.
MW isn't empty for once. Mousasi would be better off at LHW... but then again... there is Jones. There will be an opening for a title shot if Mousasi wins against 2 top 10s.
He also holds a KO victory over Jacare when he was easily a top 10 fighter.
But yes, as you said earlier, no Jones at MW.
There has been less worthy challengers in the MW division, but that was when MW was a desolate field of bones that Silva ruled over.
Vitor's in a weird spot matchup-wise, because other than Consta and MAYBE Kennedy, most top tier MWs are already matched up or coming off losses(Belcher, Boetsch)and for me, Jacare/Okami feels like a closer fight to #1 Contendership than any fight with Mousasi at the moment would. Moving forward, I think that a matchup between winner of Okami/Jacare vs. Vitor works.
That said, if Vitor insists on fighting in Brazil and/or doesn't make himself accessible to fighting stateside and Mousasi is willing to take the fight now, in Brazil and happens to win, I think that's a mighty bold statement to make at MW.
Too bad Anderson Silva already has a matchup.
