Gegard Mousasi is ready to return to action – and he wants a former UFC champion to stand across from him inside the Octagon.

Mousasi, a former champion himself in other promotions, watched Saturday as Lyoto Machida debuted in the middleweight division with an impressive knockout of Mark Munoz.

Now, “The Dreamcatcher” wants his shot at “The Dragon.”

“I want to make an impact in MW division and fight Machida!” said Mousasi, who has bounced around between 185 pounds and 205 in his career.

Earlier this year, Mousasi debuted in the UFC with a win over Ilir Latifi, improving to 34-3-2 in his career. He is unbeaten since a 2010 decision loss to Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal for the Strikeforce light heavyweight title.
