And if he can reclaim it, while also defeating the man who took it from him, Muhammed Lawal, than Mousasi can "prove something at 205," which he intends to do before an eventual move to heavyweight.
Now that Dan Henderson has bolted for the greener pastures of the UFC, "The Dreamcatcher" can be one of just a handful of light heavyweights vying for the promotion's vacated division crown.
"My only loss in a couple years has been to King Mo, so I would definitely like that fight, especially if it's a title fight. Light heavyweight isn't that bad in Strikeforce you have Mike Kyle, Feijao, King Mo, me, there's some upcoming guys so it's getting stacked even more. It's getting better. I think it suits me better if I stay busy. My last fight was five months ago and it didn't do me well, I believe. I'm now a bigger 205, I need to win a lot more fights at 205, prove something at 205. At the end of my career, I would still like to finish as a heavyweight."
