I'm going to assume this is true he's been talking about his pay and UFC screwing around with him for a while.They are so stupid =/  Moose is on a 5 fight streak,probably would be 8 if that fluke'ish kick from Hall didn't land (I know I hate that word too but 19 out of 20 imo for Gegard).

I was getting geared up for a title run from him he's right there and I want to see him fight the best guys.Bellator doesn't have a single fighter at MW that i'd be really interested in seeing him fight.****,Melvin Manhoef was involved in the last 2 MW title fights and arguably won the first.This sucks.Kudos to Mousasi but as a fan this is horrible.Obviously I blame the UFC.

Edit: ok so Carvalho is probably fighting Alessio Sakara in December for Carvalho's title,so Gegard would probably fight once before a title shot unless plans change now with the signing.Although he could go back to 205 too.

Hell of a signing for Bellator. Another shot in the arm towards more legitimacy. Hope they continue to grow. Getting Gegard to sign with them is massive.

This is what happens when you mess around as an organization and try to keep a paper champion reigning as long possible. You lose your top guys because that type of ********.

Mousasi mentioned in his interview with Ariel that he would go up to 205 or even heavyweight, even specifically mentioning a 'legends fight'. 

I thought of Fedor immediately. 

Thoughts?

Granted, but what other heavyweight legends are signed with Bellator?

@benjaminbrandt I don't think he had a specific fighter in mind,I think he was just saying he'd even fight at HW for a legends fight.He really has no clue who's on Bellator's roster besides a few guys or so it seemed.

He could fight Ken Shamrock,first death in Bellator.

Well ... Jacare is 37, Romero is 40, Bisping is 38 and is going to retire as soon as he loses his belt, Machida 39, Rockhold is one "piss me off" away from leaving too, Weidman is 33 and nothing amazing coming up the ranks ... if the UFC aren't careful the 185 division will become Robert Whittaker vs. Tim Boetsch IV (with Whittaker leading the matchup 3-0) for the title 2 years from now.

Bellator signed him to be MW champ. He'll beat Carvalho with ease and be MW champ for awhile.

He can be champ but can also lose if he is tentative like he has been in the past.

Like I said before Carvalho will probably fight Sakara next and now that's official so I have no clue what's next for Mousasi.He'll probably take a 205 or wacky HW fight then go fight the winner of the MW title if I had to guess or go after the LHW title.
