As it became known to Hay Sport, a top Armenian UFC Middleweight Gegard Mousasi, said that the match against Light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier would be a great matchp-up for him.
I know that many people can not understand me, but listen, I would put a formal beating on Daniel. If I didn't believe in this victory, I would not have volunteered to replace Jones at UFC 200. Cormier is a wrestler, he is a short guy. This is a perfect match-up for me.
As for Uriah Hall....those who believe in his victory can put all your money on it. I'm confident, I'm going to close this defeat and will wait for the fighters of the top four.
Do I deserve a title shot ? YES! If you look at my career overall, then of course I deserve it. BUT! there are men who at this point deserved a title shot more. I expect match with any of the top 4.
After the fight with Jacare and coming of USADА, I dominated all matches. It is my time. I have to stay active, to fight often, not to be lazy and stay in shape.
Recall that next fight Gegard will hold on November 19th at UFC FN in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Opponent is his old "friend", star of TUF - Uriah Hall.
