Speaking to MMA Junkie from the Netherlands before making the trip to London for fight week, Mousasi (46-6-2 MMA, 3-0 BMMA) was in a typically relaxed mood. It’s partly because he’ll be returning to a happy hunting ground in London, where he enjoyed a memorable night, both inside and outside the cage, last year.
“London has always been good to me,” he said. “I have always had victories in London and I have always won my fights in Europe, so that’s a good thing to have in the back of my mind.”
Mousasi’s last visit to the English capital was a particularly profitable one. A first-round TKO finish of Rafael Carvalho at Bellator 200 saw Mousasi capture the Bellator middleweight title in just his second fight for the organization.
“The last time, when I won the belt, there was a big celebration with friends, so I hope to it again and have a good night,” he said.
The Dreamcatcher” was originally booked to face American grappling ace Rafael Lovato Jr. (9-0 MMA, 5-0 BMMA) at Bellator 214 in January, but a niggling nerve issue in the Dutchman’s back forced the postponement of the bout. With his back now healed up, Mousasi is ready to return and faces Lovato in a rearranged title defense at Bellator London this coming weekend.
Saturday night’s bout against Lovato will be Mousasi’s 54th professional bout. And with three bouts remaining on his Bellator contract, the Dutchman says he’ll assess his performances in his next three outings before making any decisions on his future.
