Gegard Mousasi calls out Chris Weidman for not accepting fight

A new rivalry is brewing in the UFC’s middleweight division.

On Tuesday, Gegard Mousasi took to Twitter to call out former 185-pound champion Chris Weidman for stalling and failing to sign a bout agreement that was allegedly offered a few days ago.

Mousasi, ranked No. 5 in the division, claims that the No. 4-ranked Weidman has “disappeared” after receiving the contract.

There is no word on what event the bout could be targeted for.

Mousasi (41-6-2) is riding a four-fight winning streak. All four wins have come in 2016, with the previous three bouts ending by way of TKO, including impressive wins over Vitor Belfort and Uriah Hall.

Weidman (13-2), meanwhile, is riding a two-fight losing streak which included losing the title to Luke Rockhold. Most recently, Weidman suffered a brutal knockout loss to Yoel Romero at UFC 205 in New York City. The former title holder is in desperate need of a win to re-establish himself as a real threat in the division.
