This past weekend, at the UFC’s historic UFC 200 event, Gegard Mousasi picked up an incredible KO win over Thiago Santos on the UFC Fight Pass prelims.

The win made it two straight for Mousasi following his TKO loss at the hands of Uriah Hall last year. On the heels of Mousasi’s win over Santos, he’s looking to keep the momentum rolling at the UFC’s inaugural event in New York.

He spoke to MMAJunkie Radio:

“I would love to fight Uriah Hal. Even Derek Brunson. Of course, if I want to fight for the title, I need the guy who’s better known.”

“New York, Anderson Silva. Or Vitor Belfort.”

“Anderson Silva has lost (four) of his last (five) fights. He’s still ranked No. 5. He’s been caught for steroids. He’s been losing fights, and he’s still in the top six. The rankings don’t matter. I just need to keep busy. I need a couple wins because there are a couple guys ahead of me.”

Mousasi is currently ranked #7 on the UFC’s official middleweight rankings. Who would you like to see him fight next?
