    What can you say? The man enjoys eating pies and hates cutting weight. Heavyweight it is!

  • BigDave says:

    He will get smashed at HW thats just a fact.

    I love this guy but I wish he would just pick one weight class in one sport and stick to it. I think he could be great if he would stop jumping around.

  • rob says:

    yeah I agree – I think Mousasi would do well at LHW, but (god and I hate to steal a UFC line) but this is the era of the super-heavyweight the 240+lb heavyweight……stay at 205 if you’re moving up.

  • Juelz says:

    I don’t understand why he wants to go up to 230 really. Is it beacause he just wants to be bigger or something? i think he could possibly jump between MW and LHW like henderson maybe. There is still a few fights out there for him in the MW division, Belfort is after his last fight someone i would want to see against him.

  • Brandon says:

    Maybe he wants lesser competition at HW?

    Personally I think he should just stick to 185 or 205… he doesn’t have the size to compete with the Antonio Silva and Overeem…
