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?
