    Mousasi to Mw, wants to 5 fight. Silva on the Radar.

    Mw contenders are dropping like Flies, UFC wanted Bisping or Lombard to be the new challenger at 185id say and with someone like Weidman who is a relative unknown in the grand sceme of things up next it makes you think Mousasi is a fight away from his title shot.

    In the best Run of his career he beat Lombard, Jacare, Hunt, Babalu and Soko in a 15 fight unbeaten run. Id think now he is back on track and has gone undefeated in 7 he should jump the queue.

    I spoke with his manager Nima Safapour and he told me that they like the idea of moving down to middleweight. He said he wants to talk to Zuffa, to the fans, and if they're interested, they'll consider going down. He said they can make the cut easily and want a top-five opponent. They also told me Anderson Silva is on their radar, so stay tuned for that.


    Rockhold vs Belfort is the number 1 contender after Weidman gets his shot. Id LOVE to see him fight the winner of this no matter who it is. All 3 are great to watch on the feet and prefer to keep it there. If Anderson isnt staying active he should meet there winner of this for a title shot.

    If the winner of that gets a title shot the only other realistic fights would be Okami (Especially to prove he can beat a Wrestler again) or the winner of Jacare vs Philippou.

    Exciting devision now considering Weidman, Mousasi, Rockhold, Jacare and Phillippou are all in the running and havnt fought him before. Nice to see him with enough options he isnt strugging for legit fights.

    Suppose Bisping/Belcher winner or Boetsch/Munoz winner makes sense too if he gets a lower ranked fighter but I dont see it. He is an Ex Strikeforce and Dream champ and a Dream MW Gp winner.

    After a combined 60 fights over Boxing, Kickboxing and MMA (39 MMA fights) I think he is due a shot at the top of UFC levels of UFC despite being a guy who has made his name outside the organisation.
