Gegard Mousasi: 'Next Fight I'm Going to Train in the US'

via bjpenn.com

Former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi did an interview with MMA Weekly following his win over Ovince St. Preux at last night's Strikeforce show, and he had some surprising things to say. He was happy with his performance over the first two rounds, but said that he needs to step up his training overall. Apparently he doesn't have a lot going on in terms of coaches and sparring partners at the moment:

"I think, because I don't have good training. I have only one trainer. And that's wrestling, they were helping me with technical wrestling. But I don't have a conditioning trainer, I don't have a standup trainer, I don't have a jiu-jitsu trainer. I don't have any good sparring partners, high level. I don't have a nutrition(ist). I don't know what all these other fighters have. I mean, I think there's a huge (room for) improvement there. Next fight I'm going to train in the US with a good camp."

He went on to state that he'll probably work with Gokor Chivichyan, and will look to train with Dan Henderson as well. Apparently he will stick to the Orange County area and go to a few different gyms. This is obviously a good thing for Mousasi, who is an extremely talented fighter. As he said himself, there is room for improvement and with the right camp, Mousasi could definitely get his title back in the near future. You can catch the whole interview after the jump.
