Strikeforce light heavyweight champion, Gegard Mousasi seems to be unbeatable. Without losses since 2006, the Armenian has victories in three different weight categories, and wants more in 2010. In an exclusive story, published on this month's TATAME Magazine, Mousasi talked about how he started on fights, since the amateur boxing to MMA rings until his relation with Fedor Emelianenko.

Right now...he's right. He needs to take on men in the top 5 to become one of the best.

Can't wait to see Mousasi vs. Hendo @ 205.

I don't think Babalu is top 15 anymore but he is still a tough fight for anyone.

Who's left outside of the UFC? Sobral is the best 205er outside of the UFC. He absolutely does not need to fight a Bobby Southworth or Anthony Ruiz to be ready for Henderson.

You guys are right in that heshows loads of potential but Hendo seems like big step and strikeforce could make more money out of him and build to that fight IMO. If he fights Hendo and wins that this is really bad for strikeforce - especially given how much they probably had to pay him.
