Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Gegard Mousasi,
“After careful consideration, I have decided that it is in my best interest to part ways with M-1 Global,” Mousasi wrote in the e-mail. “During the time I spent under their wing, M-1 Global, as a promoter and management company, allowed me to achieve many great things. I appreciate all they have done for me.” [Sherdog]
This is great news for fans who are tired of the whole Fedor/M-1 stonewall bullshit. Gegard is one of the more interesting fighters out their and would like to see him take that step up in competition.
He still has a contract with Strikeforce and DREAM, but after that, could we see him inject some energy into the UFC middleweight division?
