UFC veteran Gegard Mousasi is challenging Bellator MMA Middleweight Champion Rafael Carvalho for the strap in the main event of Bellator 200.
Mousasi plans on winning the title on that night, because he would like to fight Bellator MMA Welterweight Champion Rory MacDonald after that.
“After this fight, hopefully we can get it done and he can come and show his skills,” Mousasi said on The MMA Hour. “But he will come up short. His style is perfect for me, he moves forward — he’ll get his ass kicked, probably.”
MacDonald hasn’t competed since winning the title at Bellator 192 after defeating Douglas Lima by decision.
The Canadian star would take to Twitter to announce that he is willing to fight the winner of the Carvalho/Mousasi fight, no matter who that fighter is:
Bellator 200 takes place on Friday, May 25 from the SSE Arena in London, England with Rafael Carvlaho and Gegard Mousasi headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs via tape delay on the Paramount Network.
