“To me the next challenge is to move up a division. It’s not because I don’t see middleweight as a challenge but because my body’s getting bigger. I always came down, came down and because of my age my body’s getting bigger and bigger. It’s something that I needed to do. I think the timing is good to go up. I may fight the winner of Babalu vs. Sokoudjou but I don’t know for sure. It’s eventually up to Affliction and M-1 who they want me to fight. It’s a tough division because every guy is explosive, every guy is fast and has good strength. It’s a tough division and there’s a lot of good names. It’s not my goal to be the best light heavyweight in the world, something I’ve always wanted is to be a heavyweight. I plan, over one year maybe two years, to build to heavyweight.”

if babalu wins
mousasi walks around at the same weight as babalu so basically they will just be more comfortable fighting without cutting any weight.

i have huge respect for mousasi and have got to watch him live a few times but he still has a lot of work to do in the mw division. it is good to see him wanting to fight the best fighters outside the ufc though.

it would be good to see him fight a big name.

Gerard is a force at any weight he would chose to fight. At 205 he could walk around close to natural weight and have more energy, due to not cutting weight. he would most likely dismantle the winner of the Soko/Babalu fight IMO. And to fight in Affliction would be a big step into making his name more well known.

I wish he would come over to the UFC he could make a big splash there.
