Gegard Mousasi prepared for U.S. debut Aug. 1

Gegard Mousasi (25-2-1) is coming off a big win (no pun intended) over Mark Hunt at the DREAM.9 “Super Hulk Tournament” back in May. Mousasi, who is considered by many to be one of the top ten middleweights in the world, is on a 12-fight win streak.

On Aug. 1, 2009, Mousasi will make his U.S. fighting debut as he takes on Renato “Babalu” Sobral at “Affliction: Trilogy” at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. Mousasi, now training in Holland, spoke with MMAJunkie Radio on Monday about his fight with Hunt, the continuation of the “Super Hulk Tournament,” and his upcoming fight with Babalu.

Gegard Mousasi confirms rumor to fight Vitor Belfort at Affliction on August 1

Currently ranked number two middleweight in the world Gegard Mousasi improved his win streak to twelve by submitting PRIDE veteran Mark Hunt in the first round of DREAM.9’s “Super Hulk” tournament on Tuesday May 26th in Yokohama, Japan.

Mousasi’s strategy coming into the fight worked perfectly. “I didn’t want to trade with him,” he confirmed. “My gameplan was to force a takedown by punching.” Mousasi will advance to the semi-finals of the “Super Hulk” tournament where he will face either Ikuhisa Minowa, Hong Man Choi, or Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou who all walked away with victories on Tuesday.

In a post-fight interview Mousasi was asked to address rumors that he will be fighting former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort for Affliction on August 1st. Mousasi confirmed the rumors as being true, “Yes, those [rumors] are true and I will be fighting Vitor Belfort.” There is no word yet on what weight class the fight will take place but speculation is it could be at light heavyweight as opposed to middleweight.
