Gegard Mousasi wants to fight on Japan card headlined by Mark Hunt vs. Roy Nelson

Jason Silva-USA TODAY Sports

Fresh off annihilating Mark Munoz, Gegard Mousasi has made it known he wants to return to Japan.

Gegard Mousasi made short and seemingly effortless work of Mark Munoz with a 1st round submission and a $50,000 dollar performance bonus. Now, Mousasi would like to return to Japan, fighting in the famous Saitama Super Arena.

Mousasi, who was inexplicably ranked at #11 going into the Munoz fight, is surely a top 10 Middleweight moving forward, and said during his post-fight octagon interview that he would like to fight a winner next (bringing up Tim Kennedy and Luke Rockhold). Ever the gentleman, Mousasi was clear that he wasn't calling anyone out, but would just like to fight them.

Mousasi has fought almost half his career in Japan, picking up a record of 12 wins and 1 lost to Akhiro Gono. Some of "The Dreamcatcher's" best moments have come in the Saitama Super Arena. He submitted Melvin Manhoef, and knocked out Jacare Souza with a thunderous up kick to cap of the one night semis and final of the Dream Middleweight Grand Prix and also made his Pride debut in said arena.

Alistair Overeem also stated he would like to fight on this card, and although highly unlikely the UFC would put Hunt/Nelson along with Mousasi and Overeem on a fight night card, it is beaming with nostalgia. Imagine how goddamn awesome a big FOX or PPV card featuring Dillashaw/Mizugaki, Hunt/Nelson, Mousasi and Overeem (and Lenne Hardt?) would be. Maybe throw in Gomi or Horiguchi too... Oh, how I miss Japan.
