The new middleweight champion would call out Bellator MMA Welterweight Champion Rory MacDonald after the fight and MacDonald would go through Twitter to accept the challenge.
@mousasi_mma congratulations on you dominant victory, @ScottCoker @rich_chou i know you wanted a title defense from me before challenging at middle weight. but myself vs @mousasi_mma is the fight to make right now, so lets make this happen!?— Rory MacDonald (@rory_macdonald) May 25, 2018
Bellator MMA President Scott Coker is seemingly in line with both champions, saying the fight will happen one day.
“Rory was blowing my phone up, going ‘let’s do it,'" Coker said after the event. “‘Like, I wanna get this fight done’. You know what, we’ll go back and we’ll see. We’re working on a few things to see if it all makes sense, but that fight will happen soon. I mean, it will happen one day. But how soon? I’m not sure.”
If the fight does come to fruition, it would seem like the middleweight strap would be on the line in this potential champion versus champion encounter.
