BOUT WITH MOUSASI NOT SET SAYS BELFORT

From MMAWeekly.com:

A mere 24 hours after Gegard Mousasi said, “Yes, those (rumors) are true and I will be fighting Vitor Belfort (at Affliction 3),” on the M-1 Global website, it appears that his confidence doesn’t hold true with his potential opponent.

“I don’t know about any of it, nothing has been decided. Nothing has reached me yet, but I’ll be on standby and see what happens,” Belfort told Carlos Ozorio in a report on GracieMag.com about a proposed Aug. 1 date at Affliction 3.

While each fighter has readily admitted a desire to face the other, a potential snag in negotiations could be the weight at which the fight would be contested. Belfort has recently been competing in the middleweight division, but Mousasi recently vacated his Dream middleweight championship because he could no longer make the weight cut.

“I cannot make the weight, otherwise I would have continued to fight at 185 and not given up my Dream middleweight title,” Mousasi said on M-1Global.com on Wednesday. “I cannot make 185 anymore and that is final.”
