TMMAC's Most Handsome Admin

Defending the Bellator middleweight title has become just another job for sixteen-year MMA veteran Gegard Mousasi.
Speaking to MMA Fighting’s Damon Martin ahead of his title defense against Rafael Lovato at Bellator London this weekend, ‘The Dreamcatcher’ explained his true motivation for fighting — and it’s not for legacy or fame.
“I’m fighting to get paid,” Mousasi told MMAFighting ahead of his return at Bellator London on Saturday. “I’m not doing this because I love the sport so much. I’m not a crazy person. The motivation if I beat these guys, if I keep winning, my paycheck will go up eventually after my contract is done. That’s the motivation for me.”
