Combate is reporting that the bout will be part of the October 8th card, which is expected to go down in Manchester, England. MMA Fighting.com has also confirmed with sources that Belfort – Mousasi is targeted for UFC 204.
Belfort (25-12) was quickly put away by “Jacare” Souza in his last fight, and Mousasi (39-6-2) stopped Thiago Santos.
So, that’s an interesting addition for the card. It’s a bout that surprisingly hasn’t happened yet, when you consider how long the two have been top ranked middleweights.
Currently Belfort is sitting in the #4 spot at 185, and Mousasi is ranked #7.
