War of Words Heats Up Between Gegard Mousasi and Vitor Belfort

From FiveOuncesOfPain.com:

Yesterday Gegard Mousasi confirmed to www.M-1Global.com that he expected to face off with Vitor Belfort at the third Affliction event which is expected for August 1. Well his expected opponent has made public the fact that he has no desire to stray away from his current middleweight class for any reason.

Mousasi has made it known that there is no way that he can physically make the 185 pound weight class any longer and wants to meet up with Belfort at a catch-weight. Something the Brazilian gives little to no chance of happening.

“Who defines this isn’t him,” Belfort was quoted as saying in a recent interview with Tatame.com. “I fight at 185lbs. If they want to do this fight at 185lbs, it’s done, otherwise I see no option to go up, even because he isn’t a challenge, a man with much name. To go up, I don’t see him as a challenge. I want to fight with him in the weight he was champion (at DREAM), then I think its worth”
