Belfort is looking to get back on track, after he was quickly taken out by “Jacare” Souza. If “The Phenom” hopes to make another title run at the age of 39, another loss for the star would be devastating.
Mousasi, meanwhile, could make a significant move up the 185 ranks, if he can score an impressive win over Belfort. The 31 year-old fighter is currently ranked #9, while Belfort is sitting in the #5 slot.
