"The Dreamcatcher" Mousasi signs a new 2-year contract with StrikeforcePosted on April 17, 2010, 09:27 AM by Anton Gurevich
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker has officially confirmed that the promotion's twenty-four year old Light Heavyweight Champion Gegard Mousasi has re-signed with Strikeforce in a four-fight minimum two year deal. 28-2 Dutch-Armenian became on of the top Light Heavyweights in the World, after defeating fighters like Renato Sobral, Mark Hunt, Melvin Manhoef, Jacare Souza and Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou.
Mousasi will put his title on the line for the very first time in his Strikeforce career, at the star-packed Strikeforce: Nashville event. Mousasi will square off against the decorated Wrestler King Mo, who is yet to be beaten in his career.
The news might upset the UFC President Dana White, who declared himself numerous times as an avid fan of Gegard Mousasi's abilities. Dana White will seek for redemption by signing the Strikeforce Middleweight Champion Jake Shields, who becomes a free agent after the headlining bout against Dan Henderson at Strikeforce: Nashville.
