MMA fans around the world love to speculate. They kick back and try to imagine what would happen if this fighter fought that fighter. Nothing is more exciting when one of those potential matchups in their head might actually become a reality.
For some time now, I have fantasized about a match between Gegard Mousasi and Vitor Belfort. Both of them have accomplished ground games, and both of them have extremely well rounded striking games. Now this would require Gegard to drop from the 205 pound Light-Heavyweight division to the 185 pound Middleweight division.
Gegard Mousasi has an outstanding record of 34-3-2 with 29 wins coming by way of stoppage. He is a former Strikeforce champion and has some extremely solid wins in K-1 matches. His striking game is proven. He has notable victories over Mike Kyle, Ovince St. Preux, Renato "Babalu" Sobral, Mark Hunt, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, Melvin Manhoef, Dennis Kang and Hector Lombard.
Vitor Belfort is not short on personal achievements in this sport either, boasting a record of 23-10 with 19 stoppages. Vitor is a former UFC champion and a trailblazer in this sport. He is known for his vicious striking, unmatched speed and outstanding killer instinct. He has notable victories over Luke Rockhold, Michael Bisping, Anthony "Rumble" Johnson, Yoshihiro Akiyama, Rich Franklin, Matt Linland, Randy Couture, Heath Herring, Gilbert Yvel, Tank Abbot and Wanderlei Silva.
As you can see, both of these fighters have accomplished great things thus far and neither is short on spectacular finishes. If this fight takes place, I guarantee it will not disappoint and nobody should miss out!
