With Vitor Belfort reportedly unwilling to fight at a weight class other than middleweight, former DREAM middleweight title-holder Gegard Mousasi (25-2-1) will instead fight Renato "Babalu" Sobral (32-8) at "Affliction: Trilogy" on Aug. 1.

The news comes from, which cited sources close to Mousasi.

I think Sobral is a much more difficult match for Mousasi. Renato shouldn't have much trouble getting it to the ground, and barring another miracle upkick--should get the tapout.

I like this match. I think Renato should beable to pull it off with a sub but its a close call imo.

Also glad to see Vitor is totally commited to 185. Hes got massive potential in that division.

I'm saying Mousasi via KO, Babalu's chin is still a question for me, and Mousasi hits hard!

Not buying this Moussasi can't make 185 thing...he's as skinny as they come. I just think he's going through a stage where he wants to bulk up for the ladies.
