Mousasi and Affliction

DreamFighters.com: Do you know where you will be fighting next?

Mousasi: I probably will fight in the next Affliction show.

This would be a major addition to the Affliction roster. He's a legit top five fighter at Middleweight or Light Heavyweight. Mousasi is also a favorite of diehard MMA fans. His presence on an Affliction card would go a long way to gaining the respect of a very important segment of the MMA community. If you can win over the most intense fans, the rest will follow.

Of course this all hangs on Affliction actually having a third show, which Tom Atencio does not sound all too optimistic about in his latest interview.

Mousasi would give Anerson Silva a great fight.

We'll see what happens when he fights heavier.

It's unfortunate he's done at middleweight, Vitor vs Gegard would have been a very legitimate title fight. Hopefully he gets Babalu for his Affliction debut.
