Sokoudjou's Camp Says DREAM.9 Fight With Gegard Mousasi Is "Possible"

3392252328_6cda1cefa2_mediumAs expected, the reported Mousasi vs Sokoudjou fight has not been signed. From Sherdog:

Word that Dream middleweight champion Gegard Mousasi will face Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou in a light heavyweight tilt for Dream 9 in May was news to the Team Quest fighter’s management and camp on Friday.

...

"It’s possible, but we really haven’t talked about it with Dream yet," said the Team Quest rep Heath Sims. "We’ve talked about fighting, but we’ve [also] talked about fighting other opponents."

Sims said logistics, such as purses and a date for the event, have not been discussed. Mousasi and others were suggested in a proposed matchup against the athletic Cameroon fighter for Dream 7 on March 8 in Japan, but talks never went further, said Sims.

And I was relieved to hear this bit of good sense from the Team Quest camp:

"It’s a big fight and it’s a tough guy," said Sims. "Thierry’s really looking to re-build his career, so I’m not sure that’s a fight we really want to take at this point," said Sims.
