No way, Mousasi was saying something about being a natural Heavyweight, I think, so the likely question is between HW or LHW.
Also nice to see that, if all goes as planned, we'll finally get Fedor-Barnett for the WHAMO...I mean WAMMA Title. If it's still even around.

It's nice to see non UFC organizations putting up great cards with a lot of intriguing fights. This is definitely going to be one sweet Summer for MMA fans.

I wonder how long it will take before diehard fight fans declare the winner (Mousasi) the answer to Anderson Silva.

Definitely looking forward to this fight.

I agree wholeheartedly. Mousasi is one bad mother...

Great match up.

When Vitor actually decides to throw,he wins most of his fights,but I see him being very cautious against Moussasi.

I have to give it to Mousasi,but imo,Vitor has a chance against anyone he steps in the ring or cage with.
Even though Fedor/Barnett will be the big appeal of this card, this could very well be the fight of the night.

sweet, i think gegard pulls off the sub, probably as good a middleweight fight you can make outside of the ufc (would love to see santiago fight one of these guys too)

I'm about positive this will be a catchweight and not a MW fight.

Mousasi didn't just pack on 30 pounds to turn around and cut it all off.

I don't see him getting under 195, especially since he still wants to gain more weight to compete with the HW's.
