Gegard Mousasi (42-6-2 MMA, 9-3 UFC) is presently on course to upstanding a title shot at middleweight despite just joining the Bellator earlier this year and is planning a shot reign if he eventually get the middleweight title, as he is presently tired of the weight cut at his present division.

“The weight cut is too much,” he told MMAjunkie  “As you get older, it’s too much. I’ve done this too many times. You get tired of it. But middleweight is where I perform at my best.”

USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings has Mousasi at No. 6 and at middleweight, he has never missed weight and since his joining Bellator, has been on a five winning streak in the division, fighting the best.

“First Shlemenko this week, and then I can look forward to the title shot,” Mousasi said. “After that, if I achieve that, light heavyweight.”

Moving up to light heavyweight, might not really be an issue for him as he has competed in the division in the past, where he won a title under the Strike force Banner, when Scott Coker was then the president of the promotion.

Mousasi will headline the Spike-televised headliner against ex-middleweight champ Alexander Shlemenko (56-9 MMA, 12-3 BMMA) at Bellator 185, which takes place Friday at Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.

Definitely Shlemenko has what it takes to stop his title dreams from coming to fruition as he is also on a six fight winning streak and his seventh win was changed to a no contest due to a failed post Fight drug test.
