Gegard Mousasi is preparing to face former UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman in just a few months at UFC 210.
Current UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping is expected to defend his championship against Yoel Romero down the line, once he recovers from his recent knee surgery.
Mousasi believes that once the two middleweights do collide in the octagon, only one of them has a good chance at winning the fight.
“You have to make Yoel Romero the favorite, but I think Michael Bisping, his style can give Yoel Romero difficulties,” Mousasi told MMA Junkie. “Obviously, Yoel Romero is going to be favored, but I give Michael Bisping a good chance of winning.”
Mousasi knows that there are other middleweights who are due for a middleweight title shot as well, but it's up to the UFC to decide who gets those title shots.
“‘Jacare’ is up there,” Mousasi admitted. “Yoel Romero is fighting Michael Bisping, so it’s me and ‘Jacare.’ It all depends on what is the better performance and what the UFC decides.”
UFC 210 takes place on Saturday, April 8 from the KeyBank Center in Buffalo, New York with UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier and Anthony Johnson in the main event.
