Mousasi wants Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz or Luke Rockhold next

Gegard Mousasi is currently on a four-fight win streak in the UFC’s Middleweight division, with the latest of those victories coming against Uriah Hall in their rematch, as he sets his sights on a possible title charge or a couple of super fights.

The Dutch-born, former Pride champion put away Uriah Hall in superb fashion, with a first round TKO win, as he decimated the American against the fence, tying an arm around his back, while Mousasi pounded with the other on Hall, till the referee stopped the fight.

After his win, Mousasi said he wants a couple of super fights with either Anderson Silva or Nick Diaz, provided the title charge is on hold by Dana White and the UFC. Mousasi also said he would like to fight former Middleweight champion, Luke Rockhold before he's given a shot at the title. 

“Anderson Silva, Nick Diaz as a super fight, that’s a great fight for me; but to get a title shot, maybe Luke Rockhold. If they give me top-10, top-15, No. 2, I’ll take the fight as long as they give me the next title shot. I’m ready to take anyone,” Mousasi said during the post-fight conference. 

With Micheal Bisping almost certain to defend his title against Yoel Romero, Gegard Mousasi waits on the sidelines, as he is almost ready for a crack at the UFC Middleweight Championship. While Mousasi has no issues waiting for his title shot, Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz has been called out by the veteran Dutch fighter, in what would be a 'super fight' if either chose to fight Mousasi.
