The talks of a potential super fight between Gegard Mousasi and Rory MacDonald are making rounds in the MMA world. After capturing the Middleweight championship last week, Mousasi had called out MacDonald in the post-fight interview.

MacDonald had a positive response to the callout as well and wanted the Bellator officials to book the fight.

Now, Mousasi has come out with some warnings for MacDonald. He talked about the potential fight while appearing on the MMA Hour this week.

“I think Rory is a big name. It’s a fight that everyone wants to see. I want to make the fight, I think Rory wants to make the fight. Rory started with wanting to come up in weight and we like the fight, so he said it and we replied a hundred times, and now, I don’t know, it’s not up to me. Like Rory said, it’s up to Bellator,” Mousasi said.

I’m no Michael Bisping

Mousasi went on to add that he is no Michael Bisping and claimed that he is technically better.

“Listen, I’m no Michael Bisping. I know what GSP did, but believe me, I’m physically a lot stronger than Michael Bisping. Technically, I’m better. So it’s almost the same fight, GSP vs. Michael Bisping, but now it’s Rory against me. I think he doesn’t know. He’s a big welterweight, but still, he doesn’t have anything over me that I’m impressed by — let’s say wrestling, or standup, or he doesn’t have the reach, speed, the striking. So I don’t know. I’ve trained with Douglas Lima, he’s a tough kid, but I could feel the weight difference. I don’t know if [MacDonald] thinks it’s easy, but he will feel it in the fight. I feel like I’m one of the strong middleweights, physically. If they’re not on steroids, I’m physically one of the strongest,” Mousasi said.

Bellator officials are yet to make any official statement regarding the official fight as of now.
