Mousasi: “At middleweight, I don’t see anyone that I cannot beat”

“He’s a smart fighter. He lures you in, and even though he doesn’t do a whole lot, what he does, he does well. I just have to be calm and not get irritated. The stand-up I’m not worried about. I will do just fine there, and on the ground also. I just have to fight smart. At middleweight, I don’t see anyone that I cannot beat. I feel comfortable fighting against any opponent. After this fight, I’d prefer to fight more of a stand up fighter, but first, I have to get through Machida. I want to stay at 185 now that I’m in the UFC. I could see maybe taking a big fight at light heavy if they really needed me to, but that’s the only way. I don’t really want to be going up and down. I just want to focus on one division, and that’s middleweight.”

In a recent interview with Bloodyelbow.com’s Steph Daniels, tonight’s UFC headliner Gegard Mousasi, discussed fighting Lyoto Machida and his future in the UFC’s middleweight division.

Think he’s right?

    He’s right. Machida doesn’t really do much. I hope Mousasi doesn’t get caught with some goofy shit that Machida does and stays patient. If so. Machida should look like JDS after a Cain encounter.

      Wow…were you wrong. just completely wrong about everything. I don’t know if anyone…ever…has been more wrong about anything.

      • Gargoyle Wrestling says:

        For whatever reason, Mousasi did not get off and throw enough punches. Maybe, it was his knee still? Machida did a good job of his normal avoid a fight style. If he would have engaged in a real fight, Mousasi would have Cain’d him. If you don’t see that, then you know nothing! Machida is a king of point fighting against people he is afraid to fight.
