By FCF Staff
As Gegard Mousasi gets set to fight Rafael Carvalho today for Bellator’s middleweight title, the decorated fighter’s reported that he might retire, once his current contract ends.
Mousasi will battle Carvalho today at Bellator 200, which is taking place in London, England. While speaking to Bloody Elbow recently, the former Strikeforce and DREAM champ had this to say, while discussing his future.
“After five fights — it’s gonna take two, three years — I’m gonna be a little bit older,” Mousasi said, while referring to the six fight deal he signed with Bellator last year. “I was thinking for retirement, to be honest, after five fights.”
“Let’s say if I win the next five fights, you’re not gonna think about retirement. It’s too soon to say it. Two, three victories, a whole different attitude of what I’m going to do next.”
Mousasi, who will turn 33 year in August, heads into today’s fight armed with a record of 43-6-2.
